Ross's blog from Inverallochy
10 events, loads of competitors and some amazing scoring!
Inverallochy, like last year, was a fitting place to end the season. It seems whenever the tour heads up north the sun shines and that was certainly the case on Sunday. The course was in fantastic condition with the greens, giving me quite a shock compared to Deeside, running quite fast but very true.
Now, how cool was the 10th? Anyone get on the dancefloor off the tee? Yeah, well Big-Dawg-Ross drove off the back....with my provisional. Such a fun hole!
On a serious note, wasps are about! With Joseph Urquhart from the flag competition being stung last week at Ellon and Kieran Spence being stung on the putting green this week, I was taking no chances when a wasp landed on my untouched banana. Without thinking and with a slightly "girlie scream" I chucked the banana away without having a bite...Better safe than sorry.
Whoever says local knowledge doesn't help, I beg to differ. Deeside- Lauren Watson, Cruden Bay- Craig Watson, Newburgh- Calvin Cheyne and this week it was Danny Cowe. Danny took advantage of the calm conditions to shoot a fantastic 40 points.
This season has kept up the tradition of the U15's being full of "bandits"! Only 3 out of the 10 events didn't have someone shooting 40 or more points. And 2 of those 3 were only 2 points shy of 40. That's mental!
Most points in a round: A cheeky 46 by Josh Bruce round Alford in June.
Most Wins: Lauren Watson with 2 wins at Dunecht and Deeside.
Most top 3 finishes: Cameron Fraser with 3.
The U15 Order of Merit was contested fiercly this year and was very competative with only 12 points seperating the top 5. Ross Cooper was the eventual winner beating me(!) and Cameron Fraser by 3 points. Well done to Ross for that!
Well this being my last blog, as I'm too old for it next year, I'd like to thank Iain for posting my 9 blogs as "Golfy McTeePeg" and the 10 blogs of this season.
Now that I'm gone, there's a blogger position up for grabs. Requirements: Must be able to read and write . Must play in the stablefords.
It's not hard work..I promise! Contact Iain if you fancy it.
