GALASHIELS

TWENTY-FIVE pairs took part in the popular Shish Tandoori Shield on Saturday.

Scott Robertson and Neale Moffat’s combined 75 Stableford points was good enough to win by two shots from Mike Moody and Scott Weir.

Davie Whitehead seemed to have more difficulty with the computer than the pin positions as his team’s final score was recorded as five points, which seemed poor reward for his partner Jos’s efforts.

Results: 1, S. Robertson and N Moffat 75 points; 2, M. Moody and S. Weir 73; 3, J. Rigg and W. Crighton 72.
