Barnes Trophy Review
We're flying through the golf season and amazingly we played our second Major of the season on Saturday as our members battled it out to win the Barnes Trophy.
Some difficult pin positions and a steady breeze made conditions tricky and it was clear that any score around level par would be in with a shout, as it was 16 year old Kieran Underwood who was out early was putting together a good round full of highs and lows! 6 handicapper Kieran wasn't his usual steady self as he suffered a double and triple bogey on par 3's but conversely when he was good he was very good and he fired an astonishing 6 birdies including what would prove to be a crucial one on the last hole when he chipped in from off the green to post a score of nett 68.
It was then a question of waiting to see if anyone could beat Kieran's one under par total, Wendy Lock and Chris Whalley both posted nett 70's but it wasn't until the last group came in that Kieran had a real challenger as Vice-Captain Dave Shering also signed for a nett 68 including 2 birdies, so we went to a card play-off and Kieran's final hole birdie was good enough to give him the edge and he was ecstatic to claim his first Major at Hartford. Well played Kieran!
Talking of Majors, look out soon for our US Open sweepstake at just £1 a ticket, it's great value and as usual we'll have some great prizes on offer!
Bank Holiday Stableford
The late May Bank Holiday allowed us to fit in another Bank Holiday Stableford and Ian Daines followed up his 5th place finish on Saturday by taking the victory with a 40 point total. Ian had an extraordinary run around the turn as he scored birdies on holes 8, 9 and 11 followed by a steady run of three pars to finish which helped him to top spot.
In runners up spot for the second time in 48 hours was Dave Shering this time with 38 points, we're sure a win must be coming soon for Dave! In third place was Captain Ian Wharton who showed a welcome return to form with 37 points.
The next competition is the June Medal this Saturday at 12:04pm.
The ladies played a very sunny 18 hole Stableford last Thursday and the winner was Kath Hough with 41 points, Kath's had a consistent season with a number of top 5 finishes so it was nice to see her pick up a win against a strong field of ladies!
In second place was Joyce Graham on 37 points and third place went to Sue Gunning on 33 points.
Remember the ladies Club Championship is coming up on Sunday 25th June and it's open to ALL lady members!
