KING JIMMY RETAIN THE VIRGINIA TROPY AGAIN!!!

Thank you to the 15 members that joined me at Craigie Hill on Sunday for supporting the club, on behalf of the team I would like to thank Athole McDonald and Craigie Hill GC for their hospitality with the course in good condition and very slick greens. On the playing side in the first game I did not give Alan McCully much assistance and we lost 2 & 1, Ian McPhee & Ricky Hannigan lost 3 & 2 in the second game and things were not looking good. Fraser Craig and Andy Clark stopped the rot halving their game then Ashley Routledge and Jim Taylor won 2 & 1 in game 4, Tam McLaren and Dave Cargill also won 2 & 1, Andy Edwards & Jonny Belford halved game 6 to make it 3 games each. Steve Smith and John Walker lost game 7 meaning we required to win the last game to avoid defeat. Paul McCarthy and Ian Rae game were all square playing the 18th and with the last shot of the day Paul holed his par putt to win the hole, game and retain the Virginia Trophy for King Jimmy.
