On a cool, windy, but sunny Friday, only 55 seniors turned out for the three-ball better ball competition, writes John Pawley.

The reason for the reduced turnout was that many were away at other matches.

The format was two scores to count off three-quarters of handicap and so the wind was not the only challenge!

Scores were a little lower than expected, but the winning score of 73 points was achieved by three teams.

Alex Neil arrived on the tee to find he had been cut two shots by the golf committee, but playing off his 24-handicap proved no problem as he partnered John Locke and Mike Jones to first place.

Captain Mike Sennitt, with David Scott and Ian Orford were next with their 71 points. Four players achieved twos; Fred Thomas on the second, Max Pipe and Alan Devenny on the seventh and John Birch on the 10th – each getting nine balls.
