The round began with a gusting wind blowing from the north, as the day progressed the wind moved to the east and then shifted back and forth, this caused much havoc for balls in the air and forced players to think carefully before pulling a club from the bag.  The course was again in top condition; the fairways were a little soft, they bounced true and had excellent cover ensuring balls sat up.  While the field was quite strong a number of members were absent representing RGC at the 2017 Lancefield Open (Shannon Wright/Mick Nichols Jnr winners with 50 pts) so many in the field felt they had a better than average chance of taking the May Medal.  The day saw three players putting in good rounds and looking in excellent positions to win the day but when it came down to it one bad hole was all that really separated them.  There was also a good field of women competing in the 2nd round of the 2017 Silver Spoon.  On a cool, windy day the results were;

Winner & May Medalist; Rob Rea – 85/19/66 from Michael McCarten – 82/15/67 & Anthony Lakey – 92/22/70

Silver Spoon Rd 2 Winner; Darlene Baker – 97/22/75

NTPs; 16th – Bob McLennan,

Least Putts; Rob Rea – 24 &  Lorraine Robb – 31
