The Team Strokeplay, a best 3 out of 4 scores event, for Scratch and Handicap prizes, was held at a very windy Craigielaw on Friday the 12th August. Sadly, only 7 Teams competed. The CSS was +3 = 75 for all Players. Please submit your "away" score. A strong Longniddry Team comprising Captain David Rudd, James Morgan, Matthew Foot and Jonny Pryde, won the Trophy and the Team Scratch prizes with a total of 240 - 7 strokes ahead of Musselburgh, who won the Handicap Team Prize. Liam Currid, of Gullane, and Lewis Reid of Craigielaw won the individual Scratch prizes with 75s. Danny Gaines of Musselburgh and Liam Reid of Royal Musselburgh won the individual Handicap prizes with 70 and 73 respectively. Full scores appear below. We owe our thanks to Craigielaw for hosting this event. Thanks also to Dave Parker, Haddington Convenor, and Jack Currid, for helping. Also to the R&A for donating lots of prizes from the Open Championship at Troon. More will be awarded at the County Cup!
