2nd Mike Rushant (13) 34pts

3rd Billy Allan (20) 34pts

Few golf courses can boast a tougher final five holes than the ones at Mountain Shadow and any score close to a player’s handicap is always seen as being a good round of golf.

The winner of the day was Paul Durkan with 35 points and despite not beating his handicap this score reflected a really good round considering the heat and the difficulty of the course.
