New Lockie Trophy Winner
There is a new winner, Val Riziotis, who has won the Lockie Trophy for 2014. Many congratulations Val and well done.
As Lady Captain, I apologise for the error on my part in misunderstanding the scoring system. Val won the trophy on having the better back 18 (not back 9) on the second day of a 36 hole competition. A well deserved win and a second time holder of the trophy. I bet you can’t wait for it to adorn your shelves Val.
Taking advantage of the considerably better day weather-wise than was forecast were Danny Deprez and Jim Fogarty, both scoring 42 points and the only two to get any handicap reduction (0.3 for both). Danny took the honours on the back 9 from Jim in second place.
Ray Esin playing right at the back of the field, certainly had a game of two halves, with a mere 11 points on the front 9 that was followed by a very impressive 28 on the back 9. Hard to believe they are the same 9 holes.
Report due soon.
Clapham Common – Rd 1 v Brent Valley A
Our team of Tim, Pete D, James, Toby, Paul B, Richard, Brett and Pete Harrison played a strong Brent Valley A team in both a home and away leg.
Scoring from both our home and away pairings was consistently strong across the board. A battling team performance enabled us to emerge victors by 143 points to 130 points. Some impressive golf played by our guys without a doubt.
We are looking forward to taking on the challenge of our next opponents either Ruislip or Wexham Park in the next round. Well done Guys.
Doreen Dolby took the Ladies’ medal with an eight shot advantage over Julie Smyth.
Liam Bridger won the medal with a very creditable 62 followed by Nigel Gaymond one behind (also scoring lowest gross). Peter Osgood was third 66 and again Ahmad figured with 67.
In the associated Grand Medal Trophy Nigel leads Ahmad by 6.
The winners were Maureen Slade and Richard Owen with 39 points and the runners up were Doreen Dolby and Toby Hunt on 37.
A good field of competitors turned up despite a number being away for the weekend. Alan Cinnamond returned the winning card with 42 points followed on 40 by Ahmad and
Alfred. Paul Patching again returned a good score with 39 points.
Ladies Weekend Away
Jayne Maxwell won the Lockie Trophy for the first time with a stunning Eagle and 5 points on the final hole, leaving Val Riziotis with a disappointing second place. Phil Flanagan returned the best score for the Men.
