Bruntsfield Short Hole Golf – 18th July 2013

On a hot sunny evening, nine members played in the July Medal.

Due to the prolonged hot spell, the course was very dry making conditions very difficult (the hardest ever?) with the ball running for a long way.

The 5th green was particularly difficult with scores ranging from 3 to 8 with an average of 5.67.

Even if everyone had had a 3 at the 5th, scoring would still have been high with the average score then being 119.75 rather than the actual average of 122.25.

The winner of the July Medal was Fraser Gordon with a net 114 (120–6), one stroke less than John Ward (115–0=115). While we both had threes at the 5th, the first two places would still have been the same, even if everyone else had had threes at the 5th.
