Bruce Putting Cup.

The annual competition for the Bruce Putting Cup was held on the practice green on June27th. An excellent turnout of members enjoyed great overhead conditions, with two rounds of the nine holes laid out by Sandy Reid resulting in a sudden-death play-off between Alan Baird, Aidan McColgan and Donald Ford. In spite of the enormous amount of time spent over the last two months “on my stance, swing, concentration, shakeless arms, wrists, shoulders and perfect stroke”, the Dalhousie Treasurer three-putted the first hole of the play-off from around four feet. That left Messrs. Baird and Ford to battle it out, and the Captain was left speechless when his long, first putt at the fourth extra hole hit the cup but refused to drop. The Match Secretary then sank an excellent putt at the next to win the trophy.


A first class buffet was served in the Golf Hotel thereafter, and the evening closed with the seven-time winner of the trophy, Arthur Coleman,  presenting the prizes – a duty which he did with the utmost grace and pleasure.
