Greetings from Arizona where the thermometer is currently showing 43 degrees Celsius. I understand it’s a little less warm in Peebles today! Great to see the TAMS are enjoying their golf in the heat.
Extreme heat, swarms of flies and a course set up for the championship created challenging conditions for we aged amateurs. Experience counted and our second oldest player, Jim McAuslin, showed the young blades how to cope in these circumstances edging Graham Mackie out on countback with a net 27. Bill Hardcastle birdied 9 but not to be outdone by the venerable Jim our oldest player, Steve Baczkowski (91-years young] was nearest the pin at the 7th. Remarkable!
