GOLFOn Monday, September 6, a team from Dalziel High School comprising of Scott Johnstone, Callum Connacher, Duncan Morton and Ricky Livingstone, took part in the annual Rotary Club Lanarkshire Schools’ Stableford golf competition held at Colville Park Golf Club in Motherwell.
The weather was warm and balmy, and the course was well set up for the aggressive golfers to make a good score with the team from Dalziel High School ready to play for the honour of the school.
Scott Johnstone was out in the first group playing with players from Clyde Valley and Coltness high schools. As the first group out the pressure was intense, with the gallery of other players waiting on the first tee expecting good opening shots on the long par three first. However, all three players got away well and settled into their game.
After a wild tee shot, Callum Connacher recovered with a miraculous shot to put his second on the green and get his round back on track. This was a regular feature of Callum’s round, but when the match was over he returned a very respectable card.
Duncan Morton had not played much golf this season, but quickly got into his stride recording a score right in line with his handicap!
Ricky Livingstone was the team’s star man, having had an excellent season with a significant handicap reduction being the reward. He played a steady round and carded a great score.
The Dalziel High School team played well scoring close to or better than their handicaps, and they enjoyed a fun afternoon’s golf with plenty of great shots to discuss in the clubhouse after the games were finished.
When the scores were added up, Dalziel High School were narrowly beaten into second place by Clyde Valley High School, who retained the title they had won last year!
