TAMS result for Thursday11th October:

On a pleasant Autumn morning we had 24 starters for our stableford competition.

The competition was ferocious with a high standard of play and low scoring.

The winner on a countback from Brian Taylor was Doug Coltman with 23 points.

In a closely packed field behind our winners, Alistair Lambie was nearest at the 7th which he also birdied. Ian Tate birdied the 9th; Tony Kinder birdied the 1st and Chris Malcolm birdied the 8th.

TAMS result for Thursday 18th October:

It was cold today and we were on the winter greens. The heavy frost also gave us our first taste this winter of the build-up of ice on our shoes - some agility is required to chip it off with a 9-iron.

Nonetheless we had 27 starters and as last week the competition was once again fierce with many players scoring well.

Our winner this week on a three-way countback from Chris Malcolm and John Forsyth was veteran Peter Barclay with 23 points.

Chris was second and he also birdied the 9th. No-one got on the winter green at the 7th today.

Today was also a landmark day as we celebrated the 92nd birthday of our oldest TAM - Steve Baczkowski.
