Benign and at times spring-like conditions were conducive to good scores from the men. Handicap Secretary Paul Grand ended up the winner with 42 points – acquiring a club during the round. Excellent 40s were returned from Paul Appleton and Kerry Sargeant, the former in his last competitive round with a non-conforming driver and the latter effecting a return to his natural Category 1 home.
With 55% of category 1-3 competitors returning within 2 of SSS 38, CSS was elevated to 39, limiting handicap reductions. Men’s handicap list…
The Handicap Secretary has prepared the CONGU Summary of Scores Report for 2007.
In thick foggy conditions, the paucity of available forecaddies from the caddy master meant that members had to exercise caution when playing. One game utilised the piercing whistle of one of its talented numbers to signal when safe for following game to play.
But scoring was good, and a count back separated the winners Messrs. Owen and Keen from Nash and Fogarty -each with 37 points. Husband and wife team Anne and Jack Koychev clinched 3rd place, 4 points further behind.
Winter Competition Rd 3
Whilst many ladies seemed to struggle, probably under the weight of copious layers of clothing to keep the cold out, new member Lynn Richardson won the first club competition she played in with 33 pts! Sonia Inniss was one point adrift in 2nd place.
This was a Reduction Only round for handicaps.
After 2 rounds of the Princes Eclectic, Cheryl Woodhouse leads on net 82, having knocked 10 shots off her 1st round score. Close on her heels is Maureen Slade on net 83.
Stuart Nash excelled with 40 points to win, just a point from Osman Chaudry with Peter Harrington a further point behind.
CSS was unchanged from SSS 38 (67). Men’s handicap list…
Stuart has a commanding lead in the Winter Competition, 8 clear of Francois Lemaigre.
A focused round from Toby Hunt gives Toby a 1.5 lead in the Prince’s Eclectic.
Cold off Santa’s sleigh are the Christmas Hamper results and latest men’s handicaps.
A dreadful weather forecast probably left a number of potential competitors having a leisurely breakfast and morning. For those testing the elements, an amelioration in conditions came and the winner with 36 points was John Ahad from Dave Williams 35. Jim Fogarty had the better back 9 from Francois Lemaigre to claim 3rd place. Best lady (all gave away a shot in the competition) was Janet Fox on 32 points.
Men’s CSS was same as SSS @ 36 giving rise to no playing handicap changes. Men’s handicap list…
Monthly Medal / Team Event
A Texas Scramble had been planned but the best laid plans…
Filthy weather meant fewer players so the ladies reverted to an individual Stableford competition. Even so, only 2 ladies completed all 18 holes out of a starting field of 10 – Lia Donath with a top score of 28 pts and Susan Smith with 22 pts. Well done to these ladies for braving the elements!
Report due soon.
