A Close Finish in Province Medal!

13 January 2016

Ten clubs entered this year's Province Medal and the final result went right down to the wire.

After the first round of games Troon Portland was in the lead with a score of +9 followed by Ayr with +5 and Galston and Gangrels on +4. In the second round Troon Portland were pegged back to a combined score of +4, Ayr slipped back to +2 and Galston to level. Gangrels won both their games and increased their combined score to +5 and Dalmellington increased their score of +1 from the first game by a further 4 shots to share top spot with Gangrels.

The rules of this competition are such that, in the event of a tie, the winner is adjudged to be the club which has scored the most shots and Dalmellington had scored 16 - 1 shot more than Gangrels.
Accordingly, the winner of this year's Province Medal, for the second year running, is Dalmellington.

Final placings -

Dalmellington +5 (16 shots)
Gangrels +5 (15 shots)
Troon Portland +4 (20 shots)
Stewarton +4 (14 shots)
Ayr & Alloway
Beresford Ladies

There were some really tight games and a close finish - what more can you ask for ? Thanks to all those who took part.
