The Scratch Golfer of the Year was won by David Sutton with 154pts after a season long duel with Gary Clarke who finished on 141pts.
The two players had very similar returns with David playing 81% of the holes covered in par or better against Gary’s 80%.
David’s best round of the year came in the June Medal when a flawless round included 8 birdies
for a brilliant 62. Hie played 20 qualifying rounds, 11 of which were below par. These were a 62,
a 66, two 67s, a 68 and six 69s.
Gary finished runner-up in both the McKeown Golfer of the Year and in the Scratch Golfer of the Year and is hot favourite to be claiming their winter equivalents in the coming months.
The extremely consistent Martin McAvoy came third with 86pts just in front of Robert Emerson, 85pts, and Ronan McCrory, 82pts.
