He took a double bogey six. Pat Butler, junior (10) was third on 68. The gross was won by Richard Duggan (1) with a 72 gross.

Members are reminded that all cards must be returned in singles competitions and the Ladies and Gents Committees will be monitoring those not complying.
Male members are reminded that with most of the weekend competitions now spread over two days, if they are on the timesheet for the competition on Sunday and they wish to play golf on the Saturday they must play from the green markers on the Saturday.
Players have been asked to rake bunkers after use and they should refrain from scooping the ball out of the holes with putters. This practice damages the inserts and also the rim of the hole.
