Sparkes flying on The Hill

DEREK SPARKES took advantage of the benign conditions last Saturday to record a personal best score of 70 for an alarming nett 62 to win the Border Safeguard Quaich. In second place was Paul McVie who is finishing off the season with a flourish, with Grant Lightfoot and Gerald Beggs one shot adrift.

Just out of the prizes on 67 was Hughie Macdonald who continues to improve. Twos: J. Cockburn, P. McVie, D. Reid and L. Rutherford. Tomorrow sees the second round of the Yarrowford Shield.
