Golf returns from Selkirk and Gala

IN last weekend’s Selkirk Golf Club Christmas Texas Scramble, the global warming restricted the field to none but the brave.

Weathering the storm were three not-so-wise men whose first nine holes had them in line for the Christmas puddings.

In the second nine , however, they sprouted back to stuff the opposition and earn them top turkey status. Results: 1, G. Easson, H. MacDonald and W. MacDonald, nett 27.6.

Elsewhere, G. Turnbull was the winner of the weekly Seniors Winter League, sponsored by John Scott Plumbing and Heating, at Galashiels GC with a nett 37.
