Mind boggling score for Stonehaven duo

Last week former Captain Sandy Walker and his partner, Malcolm MacEwen had an unbelievable nett score of 52 for the best score of the winter at Stonehaven Golf Club.

To prove this wasn’t a one off score they went one better on Saturday with a mind boggling 51. This comprised 11 nett birdies and two nett eagles at the 4th and 17th holes. Malcolm is now off to Vietnam for a month’s holiday to recover. This gave them a huge six stroke lead over pairings Chis Taylor & Ludwik Metelski and John Neal & Douglas Henderson. Neil Irvine and Harry Roulston just managed to pip Sandy and Malcolm for best scratch score with a 63.
