Firstly, I've scheduled an Extra Stableford QC next Saturday to give Members a chance to reduce their handicaps a little further before the rough starts to have significant impact after the recent rains that have already made a significant change to the grasses in all areas of the course. Enter in the Pro Shop as usual.
Sixty players entered the May Monthly Medal playing in near perfect conditions. Some of the best players in the Club were unavailable due to their Annodata match over at Hinckley GC but that didn't stop Niall Doubleday recording a nett 65 to be the Overall Winner, reducing his handicap to 4.8 in the process.
Winning scores :-
- Overall winner : Niall Doubleday 71 - 6 = 65 nett
- Best gross : Ian Braime 71 gross (back 9 c/b)
- Division 1 (30 players)
- 1st place nett : Niall Doubleday 71 - 6 = 65 nett
- 2nd place nett : Tom Greenfield 77 - 11 = 66 nett
- 3rd place nett : Lee Walsh 79 - 12 = 67 nett
- Division 2 (30 players)
- 1st place nett : Steve Buckley 83 - 16 = 67 nett
- 2nd place nett : Rob Gibbons 86 - 15 = 71 nett
- 3rd place nett : Max Braime 98 - 26 = 72 nett (back 9 c/b)
There were 11 x 2s recorded, but once again one of only two players not entering had a 2, so the pot was shared between 10 players, each receiving £5.80 which has already been paid into their competition wallets.
Next weekend we have the Gents Spring Open on Sunday, there are a very limited number of places available in the AM Individual Medal, there are rather more places available in the PM Foursomes but you must contact me by the end of Monday at the latest if you wish to play. I also noticed there was no Gents competition on the Saturday so to give Members a chance to reduce their handicaps a little further I've scheduled an Extra Stableford QC on Saturday.
