GARRY HOOD

DOB – 30th June 1961.

How you got into the sport – After losing my left eye in a schoolroom accident when I was 15 years old, I was advised to take up a sport or hobby that would help strengthen my right eye. I had friends who went to the bowling green as their parents could provide bowls, so gave it a go, and that was that. I was hooked.

Bowling highlights – Representing Scotland and being selected for Commonwealth Games in Victoria 1994.

Most embarrassing moment on the green - Trailing the jack for a 4 in South Africa, and a monkey came on and ran away with the jack!
