Perfect conditions met the 47 players who gathered at Glenralloch for Tarbert Golf Club’s James Mundell Memorial Open.

Early starter Ryan McGlynn, who has returned to top form of late, set the early pace with a superb one under par 65-3 for 62 net in last Saturday’s competition.

Ryan had four birdies in his round, one of which was at the eighth where he almost had a hole in one.

This was going to be a difficult score to beat but another man returning to form, Duncan Johnstone, gave it a good go with a net 64 which included a back nine of 34.

Lochgilphead’s Alec McAulay always plays well at Tarbert and this time was no different with his net 65.

He was joined on 65 by Tarbert’s most enthusiastic member, Malcolm McAlpine, who was left wondering what might have been.

The scratch prize went to Ross Sinclair on 71 with the better inward half over Lee Mathieson, while locals Iain Macalister and Bruce MacNab took the other two places with 72 and 73 respectively.

Closest to the pin at the eighth was Ryan McGlynn and longest drive at the second was Iain Johnstone Jr.

Captain Chris Smyth, in his closing remarks, thanked all visitors who made the effort to support the open, especially the gents from Shiskine Golf Club on Arran who are great supporters.

The ladies of the club were thanked for doing a ‘fantastic job’ all day and Graham Prentice for his ‘excellent’ presentation of the course.

Tomorrow the first round of the Archie MacNab Memorial stableford takes place at Glenralloch.
