Rain Clears Allowing St Andrews Bay Start

Rain Clears Allowing St Andrews Bay Start

May 27th, 2008

WITH THE weather having caused mass disruption to the St Andrews Bay Masters, it was a case of completing one round early on Friday morning so a cut could be made for a second and final 18 holes.

Six golfers completed nine holes on Wednesday, but not a ball was struck in anger the following day as frustration took centre stage in the Scottish town of Peebles.

However Friday brought clear and sunny conditions and after a 6.30am start for the entire field, a cut was set at one-over-par, a score 69 players matched or bettered.

Limerick golfer Tim Rice, who won the early season event at Quinta Da Ria, led the way at the cut with a seven-under-par score of 65 whilst Ally Mellor (Nizels), Joe Templer (Henley) and James Holmes (Mornflake Oats) were nicely poised a shot behind.

Raymond Burns (Newlands) shot a 67 (five-under-par) along with Jason McCreadie (Buchanan Castle).

And a whole host of golfers were a further shot behind: Paul Bradshaw (Gainsborough Golf Club), Ryan Fenwick (Bognor Regis), Colin Mitchell (A Proctor Group/Rustington Golf Club) Stephen Dixon (Bromborough) and David Clark (Morpeth).
