In conditions conducive to good scoring, it was the unlikely pairing of the two Davies, Callaghan and Summers, who had the best score of the day with a gross 63 three under the par of the course.
Summers was the main man with two birdies and an eagle at the 17th being the highlight of the round. With expectations running high, both players are experienced enough to know that the net 55 score recorded will be more valuable in their quest for qualifying in March. Also on that score were young guns Kevin Riddell and Ross McAllan.
The pairings of Pittendreigh and Graeme Adamson and Melvin and Gordon Adamson recorded scores of two under par 64s.
In the singles, Frank Urquhart’s 41 points adds to his decent start so far in the Winter League. Five players recorded scores of 39 points Graeme Docherty, Donald Gordon, Doug Barnard, Nigel Shuttleworh and Eric Douglas.
On Saturday evening, more than 70 members enjoyed the annual gents’ prizegiving held in the clubhouse.
After a hearty and delicious carvery meal served up by caterer Gary Wilkie and the handover of the various trophies by club Captain Terry Middleton, the entertainment was served up by the after-dinner speaker, Forfar manager Dick Campbell.
