Steady play on slick greens secured a win for John MacNab in the James Mundell Memorial Open at Glenralloch.

The Tarbert golf club stalwart was in complete control in the testing conditions with his 71-7 for a winning score of 64.

MacNab was helped by a birdie at the sixth when he almost holed his second shot.

Mundell took home a coveted trophy and a very special bottle of Jura whisky kindly donated by host Catherine Mundell.

Despite the awful rain in the lead up to the competition, the course stood up to the test with the green-keeping staff and members doing a great job.

The poor overhead conditions and slick greens made scoring difficult with the players in the middle ballot getting the worst of the conditions.

Lochgilphead father and son Alex and Kenneth McAulay set the early pace with net 66 and 67 respectively, infact Alex’s score remained in the lead until the very final group finished.

Iain Johnstone snr, finished a further shot back with nett 68 for fourth place.

In the gross section Bruce MacNab took first place with 72 followed by visitor Robert Logan on 74, Keith Blair on 75 bih and Steven Gilmour also on 75.

Closest to the pin at the sixth was John MacNab, closest to the pin at the eighth was Robert Logan and longest drive at the second was Steven Gilmour.

Club Captain Keith MacTaggart paid tribute to James Mundell in his closing remarks and to Catherine for her continued sponsorship and help to the club.

The first round of the Archie MacNab Memorial Cup is this weekend. The stableford format is over 36 holes with the second round the following weekend.
