The Erskine Shield was played for on Saturday 21st June with seventy players competing on a warm and sunny day. The scoring was of a high standard with several players returning nett scores less than 70. Winner on the day was Andrew Wallace with an excellent 70-5=65. Andrew, 17 next month, in his first season as a full member of the club, shrugged off the disappointment of a 3 putt bogey at the 2nd to birdie the 3rd and followed this with eight straight pars before birdieing the 12th and 13th to go 2 under par. Bogeys at 14 and 17, after another 3 putt, secured Andrew his first victory in the seniors’ section by one shot from country members Norman Bowie and Gerry Kelly.
