Bogey / Committee Cup Rd 2
What a difference a week makes! From woolly hats and lots of layers to sun cream and shorts for the second round of the Committee Cup.
The scoring was only marginally improved for all bar the leader after round one. To add to our challenges, this was the first round on the changes to holes 7-11, new stroke indices and a SSS 69 and resulted in a reduction only round.
Sheena Harrington was the leader on the day, but Veronica Mitchell maintained her first round lead to win the Committee Cup with scores of 38 and 30 by a margin of 7 shots from last year’s winner Lia Donath. Only 6 ladies completed both rounds of this competition.
Report due soon.
Summer Cup / Committee Cup Rd 1
Another unseasonably cold and windy day (at least in this reporter’s view) resulted in winter-like scoring with the exception of Veronica Mitchell, who obviously enjoyed the day, romping into an 8 shot lead for the first round of the Committee Cup with 38 points. In second place, and with much to do in round 2 to catch Veronica, is Doreen Dolby on 30 points, with Lia Donath and Joan Mulcahy one further shot behind.
Ed Henery proved victorious on a count back from Ahmad from the junior section (well done Ahmad who is cut .5). Cuneyt Sazer’s rich vein of form continued with third place on 34 from Anthony Tama.
An outstanding round of 64 rewarded Cuneyt Sazer with the Platinum Jubilee Trophy, 6 ahead of Steve Cross, John Morris and Steve Byers. First lady was Val Riziotis on 75.
Scoring generally was difficult, reflected in a CSS adjustment of +3. An Exceptional Scoring Reduction of 0.5 was applied to Cuneyt in addition to the normal cut.
With the return of winter like conditions came a reduction only (QRO) round for the ladies, which was also rather unfortunately the qualifying round for the NAPGC medal competition.
Only three gross scores below a 100 were recorded, with the lowest also giving Jayne Maxwell the best net to win the May monthly medal with a net 78. The only other lady to achieve a net score in the 70s was Maureen Slade on net 79 to make her the runner-up.
Paul Cook secured another victory with a net 70 on a day where most found it difficult to score. Paul is now cut to a Category 1 player – well done Paul. Three 71s battled for second place with Cuneyt Sazer winning on count back from Toby Hunt and Matt Mandelbaum.
Graeme Syme heads the associated Grand Medal Trophy from Rory Colfer & Cuneyt Sazer.
