Kenny Stevenson and his clubs take a deserved rest after shooting a 65.
Kenny Stevenson and his clubs take a deserved rest after shooting a 65.

Kenny Stevenson shot a tremendous four under par 65 to win the Reavey Scratch Cup at Banbridge GC last Saturday.

The competition was played in conjunction with the Saturday Stableford. Kenny had six birdies, 10 pars and two bogeys. He is without doubt one of the best iron players in the club and, on Saturday, he putted superbly too. The result was one of the best rounds of the season.

Neil Clydesdale finished runner-up with a gross 67. Neil had birdies at holes four, seven, 12 and 16. His only error was a double bogey at the shortened third hole.

Colin Wilton (two) also had a gross 67 but Neil beat him on countback. Colin had to be content with the best nett prize.

The man of the moment was Kenny Stevenson. He was the oldest player in the field by some distance but, on the day, he was the best player.
