In the 5th round of the Winter League on a cold and fresh winter morning DAVID S DOUGAL sinks a hole in 1 over the sea on the 6th hole.
well done DAVID
David Drysdale made a valiant push toward the winner's circle but settled for second place at the Alfred Dunhill Championship after a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to end his week on 12-under 276, two shots behind the winner David Lipsky.
The Scot was entering the week fresh off a WD at the South African Open due to an arm injury. At the same time we knew he was comfortable at Leopard Creek as he said this in 2016, "It’s a fantastic golf course – one of my favourites. It’s one of the first events I pencil in for my season every year. I love coming down here. The course is amazing. It’s such a good golf course, I think every aspect of your game is tested." Despite the renovations, Drysdale still appears to be fond of Leopard Creek. He capped off his week with just seven bogeys and nothing worse (19 birdies). Drysdale added that 19th birdie at the closing hole to apply some extra pressure to Lipsky who still had two holes to play at the time and was just coming off a double bogey at the 16th. In 471 career starts, Drysdale now has nine podium finishes, three of them being runner-up finishes. He may be taking the scenic route but the 43-year-old is still searching for his way to the winner's circle.
come on David all at Eyemouth Golf Club are shouting for you.
All Golfers please take not .The date for the competition has been changed and the date is now Sunday the 23rd Dec 2018
all and have a great Christmas
Eyemouth Golf Club would like to extend a huge well done and congratulations
to our very own Head Green keeper
Keith Burgon Has Just won an Award for the South of Scotland from B.I.G.G.A
We think you will all agree it is a well deserved win , Keith and his team have had to deal with all extremes of the weather spectrum over the past few years but nothing fazed them and they still kept the course open and in perfect condition.
and thanks for the hard work
It is great to see David
get his 2018/19 season off to the start required, after a final round of 66 in the seasons opener to return 10 under in the Hong Kong Open.
After the thrilling battle that David was involved in at the end of last season to retain his tour card we are pleased to report a superb 5th place in the Hong Kong Open
as he kicks his season off in style.
from all at Eyemouth Golf Club
