Bernard Wins Hugh Wilson Shield 

It was the Hugh Wilson Shield competition at Silverwood Golf Club on Saturday, it was a windy day with soft fairways with no run and this made for a tough challenge for the members.

In 2nd place was Jim Mc Neice again with 40pts, he had a great front nine of 25pts with four pars at the 4th 6th 8th and 9th holes and five single bogeys, but Jim could not continue his fine form on the back nine returning only 15pts with four bogeys at the 13th 15th 16th and 17th holes and five double bogeys to just lose out.
