The weather relented for a few hours and 69 players entered the Discoll Sheppard Cup in relatively benign conditions although it was very chilly for the early starters. Listening to stories in the clubhouse many found putting difficult as the greens ran reasonably true but were quite slow after the recent horrendous weather, again we should at least be pleased to have played when many others around us had to find another way to occupy their Easter Sunday.
Commiserations to Will Harris who recorded a 12 on the 1st, using up 8 of his 9 shot allowance, hardly an auspicious start to a medal round yet still finished with a gross 80, nett 71.
Shaun James mastered the Easter conditions better than anyone else with a 2nd place on Friday followed by 1st place today, well done Shaun and enjoy playing off your new handicap of 14.0!!
Shaun James : Nett 65 1st place nett (back 9 countback)

Ian Braime : Gross 74 Best gross
The Easter Monday Fourball will go ahead if the course is playable as it will be extremely difficult to find an alternate date, sadly the forecast hasn't improved but the Met Office are not always right are they......
