Summer Cup / Committee Cup Rd2
On the hottest golf day of the year so far, 13 Ladies competed in the second round of the Committee Cup. Because of the beautiful weather and the numbers of people on the course, it was a slow round but it clearly did not deter Sheena who came in with a very good stableford score of 37 points.
With her combined first round, Sheena is the overall winner of the Committee Cup with 67 points, 10 points ahead of Sonia with 57 points. Congratulations to Sheena and Sonia for two good rounds of golf.
