Players hit-off in the first round of the 2018 Flatstick Roofing Summer Cup under clear skies with virtually no wind.  Each round will see the top 10 golfers allocated points, players have two chances to score in each round; Sat and Wed. Whilst the 100mm+ of rain from last weekend saw a green tinge across many fairways the very sudden death of the winter grass (42C will do that) saw relief, to a club length fairway played.  Scarifying and rolling of the greens made for quicker than usual putts with a tendency to move off the line (unless you were putting down a scarifying cut).  The still day and plenty of run on the fairways should have seen excellent scoring but all golfers found it very difficult to put a number of good holes together.  On a still, hot afternoon the results were;

Winner; Scott Williams – (18) +1 C/B from Mick Nicholls Jnr & Bob McLennan, Chris vanDerVliet – (25) & John Laing – (29)  Square

NTP; 15th – Rob Rea
