The first really warm day of spring saw a strong field take to the course, there was a steady southerly breeze but it did not effect the players.  Again the fairway were in top nick and the 1st cut of rough was perfect, once golfers strayed a bit further off the fairway finding a ball was a little more challenging.  The two semi finals of the John Laing Shield proved to be hard fought and very close affairs.  The stroke event was equally tight, three players were neck and neck down the final few holes and one loose shot here and a chip-in there made all the difference.  On a beautiful late spring day the results were;

Winner; Anthony Freeman – 93/21/72 from Jim Patton – 95/22/72 & Scott Williams – 91/18/73

NTPs; 1st Kevin Dunn & 15th Jim Patton
