After an incredible start to the season, Douglas Park’s Junior JJ McCarry (scratch) Team travelled to second placed Kirkintilloch with a chance to make it 6 wins out of 6 and win the JJ McCarry Division 2!!!
With 4 matchplay games being played, a single point would have been enough and Sophie Murphy duly delivered with an emphatic 8&7 victory. The team wanted to maintain their 100% record though and Greg MacLeod won a tight match 2&1 to ensure Douglas Park couldn’t lose. Ross Mirmelli, carrying an injury, staged a valiant fightback but unfortunately lost 5&4 which meant it all came down to David McColl on the 18th green. Losing 1 down, David chipped to 4ft and, knowing the importance of the putt, confidently rolled it home for a 2.5 – 1.5 victory!!! Congratulations to the team of Farris Hassan, Chris Lathan, Greg MacLeod, David McColl, Gerard McKinlay, Louie McMillan, Ross Mirmelli, Sophie Murphy, Archie Scott, Kirstie Souter, Scott Souter and Robbie Trainer. Greg MacLeod also appears to have the won the Order of Merit for most points won!
The league and results can be viewed at www.golf-in-glasgow.com My thanks go to Calum Gordon for running the team and to all the parents for your assistance in transporting the juniors to the various matches. For 2019, both our Junior JJ McCarry and Marley teams are currently without a sponsor so if anyone knows of a local business who may wish to provide team polo shirts, please get in touch.
