Former Club Champion wins Spring Outing
Former Club Champion, Iain Burnett saw off the rest of the field with a nett 67 in this year’s Masters Spring Outing over the Buddon on Sunday, only hours ahead of Jordan Spieth winning that other minor competition with the same name from across the ‘pond’. Iain picked-up the prestigious Yellow Jecket, the Masters Trophy and a voucher for £30. Arthur Smith narrowly claimed 2nd place on a 3-way count-back from veteran campaigner Alan Clark in 3rd with Secretary Coutie back in 4th. All had nett 71s. Roy Purdom was nearest the pin at the 4th and longest drive at the 16th, (surprise surprise) was David Morton. John Gamack picked up the George Duncanson Trophy for the most improved player and the accolade of the ‘worst player’ on the day along with the famous ‘beg of tetties’ went to Dave Ritchie. The winning team was Vice Captain Simpson’s Team who trounced Captain Campbell’s duffers by 3 matches to 2 and too many holes up to mention. After the golf, the members retired to the sanctity of HQ for a lovely meal and one or two refreshments. All-in-all a very pleasant start to the season.
