It’s getting colder but the scores aren’t getting higher!
Congratulations to Yuni Yang for shooting nett 68 to win by 6 shots and claim the Secretary’s Cup! Dorothy Heath edged out Jenny Cooke for second place on a countback. Both had a nice score of nett 74.
Also, well done to Glenn Bolger on winning the May Monthly Medal with a score of nett 62 to win by 5! This is one of the best scores in a monthly medal in recent memory and capturing this win puts Glenn into the playoff for Medallist of the Year! A reminder to all members that the June monthly medal will be played this Saturday the 25th of May. Good luck to all involved!
