Sunday, Sept. 18

 

By a 13-12 score, Valentine edged Ainsworth Sunday at the Prairie Club to regain the Rolling Rock in the annual match-play golf tournament.

In the event pitting 10 golfers from the Ainsworth and Valentine clubs, Ainsworth jumped out to an early lead, winning the scramble matches by a score of 3-1/2 to 1-1/2.

Valentine stormed back in the alternate shot format, winning four of the five points to take a 5-1/2 to 4-1/2 point lead.

Valentine increased its lead to 8-1/2 to 6-1/2 in the best ball format, scoring three points to Ainsworth’s two.

Ainsworth rallied in the singles. With the final two groups finishing in the dark, Ainsworth scored 5-1/2 points in the 10 singles matches to 4-1/2 points for Valentine, but the 4-1/2 points was enough for Valentine to regain the rock with a one-point win.
