September Monthly Medal
Congratulations to Pete Smith on winning the Monthly Medal for September. A good start out of the blocks saw Pete net 2 under after 4 holes before giving those shots back on the 7th & 8th holes. A par on the 9th hole had him making the turn 1 under handicap. A bit of a stumble in the middle of the back nine was overcome by back to back birdies on the 15th & 16th holes, gaining the 3 shots dropped from the previous holes finishing the round with a net 71, 1 shot clear of the field.
