Golf: Close finish in Texas scramble at Rothesay

Robert McKechnie, Craig McFarlane, Nicky Simmons and Donnie McDermid won the first Wednesday Texas scramble of the season at Rothesay Golf Club this week.

Ten teams of four took part in what turned out to be a very close-run thing, with both the winners and runners-up shooting the same gross score of 58, 11 under par.

The winners were decided on the basis of the handicaps of the two teams, calculated at ten per cent of their combined handicaps, with Greg Fisher, Ron Cuthbertson, David Cameron and Gary Steele having to settle for second place.
