Lissaman Cup |
Proving yet again that for many, more choice is not necessarily better, the annual 3 clubs and a putter competition produced some pretty tight scoring. However, the winner by one shot was Anthony Tama on a net 67 with Pete Davies in second place. In third place on count back, and also the first placed lady was Alison Chadwick with a net 70.
Six 2’s were recorded – again proving that choice of club does not always help the game!
Phil Flanagan is confirmed as the Top Dog Trophy winner by three points over Paul Patching.
The unseasonably warm weather was of little benefit to the vast majority of today’s competition entrants with scoring at such a level that the CSS increased by three with a reduction only round the result.
With the men receiving two shots, the winner with a clear three point margin was Jim Deissler on 38 points. James Barker and Malcolm McKinlay both scored 35, with James taking second place on the back 9. First placed lady was Gina Jillett in 6th spot with 32 points.
This was the last week playing the ball ‘as it lies’, so perhaps the introduction of preferred lies will help with a return to more usual scoring levels! (At least until winter actually arrives).
Monthly Medals & Barton Bowl
Early autumnal conditions prevailed and the rain held off until well after play.
Two competitions were played simultaneously. In the monthly medal Veronica was the clear winner with a net 68, five shots clear from Kate and Doreen.
In the Barton Bowl which excluded Tenesi and Deborah, Veronica is declared the winner with 38 points again five clear from Kate and Doreen.
A warm welcome awaited Lia in the clubhouse where a tab had begun to celebrate her hole in one on 16. It was a good shot which progressed to the hole. Well done Lia! That makes 3 this year!
The monthly medal was won by Julian James with a skilful and workmanlike 67, one ahead of Nigel Gaymond and Pete Davis.
This was the 8th and final round of the Grand Medal Trophy in which Liam Bridger prevailed to win on 320, seven ahead of Nigel. Nigel had a spirited back 9 of 36 (3 over par) in a valiant effort to catch Liam but unfortunately the damage had been done on the front 9..
A patchy grass frost and a distinctly autumnal nip in the air greeted competitors. After a few holes however, the last vestiges of summer sun appeared and top layers of clothing were shed.
The winner on countback was Toby Hunt on 68 from Jim Fogarty. Toby’s recent good form at St. Andrews continues. An exceedingly good round from Kate Emanuel 69 placed her third and first lady. Two further behind were Peter Harrison, James Barker and Kieran Green – the latter only two over par after 9.
In the associated Anniversary Trophy, Chris Jones is declared the winner after four Jubliees – eight ahead of Danny Deprez and Jim Fogarty.
