BUCS Tour – Fife Tournament

12/10/2018

As has become almost expected at this event the weather played a large part in the running of the tournament, after strong winds and heavy rain on day one made the going tough for all it was to get worse overnight resulting in the cancellation of the entire second day’s play.

The final day was cool and clear, with only a few strokes separating the bulk of the field it was a sprint for the titles. In the men’s event it was Maynooth who dominated the top places with Caolan Rafferty running away with a 6 shot victory on -5. The best St Andrews players were Matthew Myers and Nathan Kirk who finished joint 12th with Elliot Innes having another solid tournament in 19th.

In the ladies tournament we only had one top 10 finisher as Georgina Hirst continued her fine start to the season by placing 5th.
