Last week’s Sunday morning game was one of those collaborative efforts that are a welcome break from the pressures of monthly medals, competitive opens and other ‘must win’ games, writes Andy Wagner.

The day was run as a 3BBB team event with sides that picked each other as preferences.

No surprise to see Ron Graham and the doughty Dave Morgan out together but this time they were augmented by Richard Beard.

A shrewd choice indeed, because, together they won the day with 47pts! One missed putt behind were Ian Atyeo, Darren England and Jeremy Stamp whilst the team of Stewart Slater, Dean Bonetta and Derek Richards who were divided by count-back with 46pts each.

The sun shone, the greens were putting well and the competition was a mixed, teams of four- with two best Stableford scores to count .

Team games are always fun everyone supporting each other to chip close or sink the putt for that vital extra point.

The scores were quite close but the winning team with 86pts on count back were Hilda Hoepelman, Christine Bradshaw, Mike Watts and Roger Pincombe.

Second place, also on count-back, were the team of Sue’s and Paul’s - Lady Captain Sue Ritchie, Sue Witton, Paul Ritchie and Paul Witton.
