Satuday's weather was pretty windy but clearly going to be much better than Sunday's so 21 pairs played and recorded some great scores in the Betterball Medal. Tom Younghusband, playing with Glenn Barlow, was a remarkable nett 8 under for the 9 holes he scored on, helping them to a brilliant 59 nett score. Andrew Green & Darrell Knight both shrugged off the 3 shots they lost between them in the recent Annual Review of handicaps to return a creditable nett 65 for 3rd place.
Winning scores :-
- 1st place nett : Glenn Barlow & Tom Younghusband 59 nett
- 2nd place nett : Adam Footitt & Andrew Watson 62 nett
- 3rd place nett : Andrew Green & Darrell Knight 65 nett
- 4th place nett : Mick Abbott & Brian Ayto 66 nett (back 9 c/b)
Although nobody played on Sunday, the course was fully open and playable so bad weather didn't force cancellation of the 2nd day, therefore, as stated in the competition rules, points have been awarded to be credited towards the aggregate scores.
Final round is next weekend, Betterball Stableford, so still one chance remaining to force yourself into the top 8 pairs to go into the quarter finals commencing Saturday 22nd February.
