Div. B -18 hole Stableford
1st Daniel Kirsch 39 points
2nd Alfie Poole 35 points
3rd Maria-Tiffany Thompson 34 points (in her first 18-hole competition)
9 hole Stableford
1st Benjy Clapton 19 points
2nd Caitlin Hassall 16 points
Well done Maria for your first 18-hole competition. I do get excited when I can cut handicaps. So I am delighted to report that Daniel has been cut another 3 shots and is now down to 32. Whilst in the 9-hole Division Benjy has been cut by one shot down to 23. Well done also to Caitlin, especially remembering that her handicap was cut by 3 in the last competition.
There are only two junior events where we run an “optional 2s” competition. Junior Captains Day is one and this is the other. There was only one 2 on the day (in all divisions) and that went to George Johnson for his morning round. George, you will, of course, only get the money against the morning round!
I have a very special thank you to John Perkin. John was there very early to guard the 1st tee, then moved over to the 10th and then repeated this for the afternoon round. Brilliant John, you are wonderful. A big thank you to our on-Course helpers for the day; Kate Brookhouse, Sheila Fletcher, Maurice Howell, Andy Poole and Tricia Sandy.
Other special thanks go to Anthony Dell for finalising the competition at the end of the day. Thanks Ant.
