Three men's teams, skipped by David Murdoch, Warwick Smith and Tom Brewster, were at the Bern Men's Open this weekend. Sadly none made it to the playoff stages of the event.
Murdoch went out on a record of three wins and two losses, Smith on two wins and three losses, Brewster on one win and three losses. The triple knockout system is hard on teams who drop a game, they have to keep playing and winning to get back in with a chance.
Andy Kapp from Germany beat Switzerland's Ralph Stockli in the final.
Kelly Wood with Jackie Lockhart, Lorna Vevers and Linsday Wood was the only Scottish team in Zurich for the Grasshopper Women's Masters, it was played in a two section league.
The Wood team, like the men, finished out of the playoffs on a record of two wins, one draw and one loss.
Germany's Andrea Schopp took the title.
