Sunday July 18, The Raymond Curtis Salver: once again a fine morning for golf and a good field of 38 participated in the latest of our charity support opens.

Scoring was good across the board with net 61 being good enough only for fourth place but the two Jamies, Macpherson and Stewart, each produced superb scores of 64 gross and these on a day when any advantage in distance was more than tempered by hard fast greens requiring great short game dexterity.

Superb golf from both with Jamie Macpherson just edging first place on handicap and Jamie Stewart edging best gross score on the better back nine. Result: 1 Jamie Macpherson 5, 64, 2 Cameron Hill 19, 60 acb, 3 Jamie Stewart 4, 60 and lowest gross, 4 Graeme Crichton 13, 61.
