Juniors to the fore
The Junior Stableford, held on Saturday, saw some very creditable scores carded, writes Steve Percival.
In first place, with 38pts, was Matt Watson closely followed by Bradley Rowe, with 36, and Lewis Cottam, 35.
In the club monthly medal competition Stuart White playing off 11, scored a net 71 to take second place in division one close behind Danny Hopkins(13) with a net 70. Division two was won by Mark Thurwell ocb with a net 75 ahead of Ian Lyon and Shane Stone.
In benign weather conditions, with the fairways much dryer than recent weeks, 72 members of the Senior Section took to the course to contest the first of the monthly competitions of the New Year. Although the greens were a little inconsistent due to recent hollow tyning, the fairways were giving good run and distance with consistency of bounce. As a result some very impressive scores were carded. In division one Jim Rowland - Rees(12) carded an excellent 41 points with David Lines (12) and Paul Galloway (14) close behind each with 39 points. David Lines secured second place on countback. Division two saw a magnificent 43 points scored by Rob Hampson(21) with Royston Davies(21) second on 39 and Ian Lyon(21) third with 35 points.
