Jimmy Kerr Open 2011

2011_08_06 Play continued at the Machrihanish Golf Club with the Jimmy Kerr Open last Saturday being the first weekend of back to back Open competitions at the club.

Most of the large field of competitors got round in dry and good scoring conditions, however the afternoon tee times would probably had to use the waterproofs at some stage to deal with some heavy showers.

The man on form was Paul McWhirter who warmed up earlier last week by winning the midweek stableford with a score of 37 points, and continued his winning run in the handicap section to take first place with a 70-4=66 (BIH). Birdies at the 10th, 12th and 17th  from Paul, contributed to a one under par inward, to keep A Howell in the runners up spot with a 83-17=66.

Third place went to P Martin with a 74-7=67, with David Rankin and David Galbraith taking 4th and 5th place respectively after count back.

In the Scratch competition, Oliver Armour took the honours with a 68, followed by Stuart Campbell on 70.
