I am not sure that Joe McCandless could have played on the original date for this competition, which was postponed because the Course was closed, so I guess he is just delighted at this change of date. Joe had a great round shooting a Nett 65. Congratulations Joe on winning the Bryan Baker Trophy.
Hot on his heels with a Nett 68 was David (Haenelt) followed by Maria-Tiffany with a Nett 69. To the delight of a few, all the bunkers were back in play for the first time in a few competitions, although the greens may have proved a little difficult for some after the Course Maintenance Week!
The CSS were 70/69/71, White/Yellow/Red tees in that order. Results are:-
1st Joe McCandless 65 Nett - Handicap Reduction via Uttoxeter Golf Club
2nd David Haenelt 68 - Handicap Reduction 0.8 down to 22
3rd Maria-T Thompson 69 - Handicap Reduction 0.2
4th Tom Andrews 72
Congratulations also to Max and Daniel for playing within their respective “Buffer Zones”.
We had four juniors in our Blue Tee Competition, Elliot Clark, Declan Cox, Thomas Fossdal-White and Richard Haenelt. All played well and had some great shots but, according to the On-Course helpers, maybe some putting practice wouldn’t come amiss?
Richard, yet again, came out the winner with 17 points and he didn’t score on two holes, followed closely by Thomas with 15 points and he didn’t score on four holes! With both Elliot and Declan scoring 12 points. I think that is where the putting practice comes in guys.
Many thanks to Gordon Booth, Jan and Phil Jackson for their help on the Course. Also, as usual, to Nicki for entering the scores and finalizing the competition, even though she is away on holiday. Don’t shoot the messenger folks, she insisted.
