Men: May Stableford Results

The Hill course welcomed 89 entrants to this month’s monthly stableford. Conditions were dry but a swirling wind added a few challenges to picking the correct club (Well I found it tricky!).

Looking at the scoring the 9th and 10th were the polar opposites of each other reflecting the prevailing – the downwind 9th being the easiest hole yielding 14 birdies and 38 pars with the 10th being back into the breeze tamed by only 6 golfers – less than 7% of the field scoring a par.

In Division 1 a trio of 36 points battled it out for third spot with  Count Back being deployed to separate the competitors. It was Kevin Reece that secured it from Simon Leigh and Kevin Coxon. In second spot was James Tinsey (not sure what he is eating but seems to get taller every time I see him) with a fine 38 points. Out in front though was our very own Treasurer – Tony Lynne with an excellent 39 points – well played Tony.

Over in Division 2, golfing royalty was out in again with Count Back having to separate a pair of fine 37 pointers to determine 2nd and 3rd spots. Nigel Orpin, showing a welcome return to form, was edged out from the runner-up position by Simon Jones. Showing everyone the way though with an excellent total of 40 points was Paul Dodman who also top scored in last month’s stableford. Well played Paul and congratulations on winning the Overall.

Events coming up are:

  • The Greenkeepers Revenge on Friday 27th May – still some places left if you fancy taking on the challenges set by Brian and his team. Give the Golf Shop a call
  • Also one for the diary is the Early Risers on Saturday 25th June – 06.00 shotgun start for teams of 4 battling out in Texas Scramble format. The food to follow has been changed to reduce the cost – it is now a bacon roll, breakfast pastries and tea/coffee to held in the Sports Bar. So if you fancy some fun pop your name down on the start sheet in the changing room – you will be back in time to cut the grass and still take the Mrs/Partner/Loved One out for Sunday Lunch!

The next RTB event is the June Medal – an RTB Major so double points on offer – on the 4th June.
