Result from the Presidents Cup

On what must have been the hottest Saturday this season sixty odd "summery" dressed golfers teed it up for a shotgun start.
Lots of scores of 36 points and above but top score of 40 points went to 
Sandra Barber Ladies Vice Captain making it a double for the Barber's as our Gents Vice Captain won it a few years ago.
Thanks also to the centre for providing iced water on the 18th green, maybe the next time a plunge pool might be more apt as numerous player were exhausted by the finish.
