The Better Ball competition this Saturday was played in the usual conditions of rain and wind.  There was an added complication, a Congu change to handicap allowance for Betterball competitions.  The allowance changed from 3/4  to 90%.  All 68 members who entered managed successfully to work out 90% of their handicap!

With an unbeatable score of 39 points Paul Clemens and Lewis Bradley took 1st place followed by Steve Smith and The Captain, David Elliott in 2nd on 37 points.  Matt Mills and Bill Gowans had to settle for 3rd position on countback with 37 points.

With the next 4 pairs all finishing on 36 points the prizes were decided by countback.  Nick Evans and Richard Lawrence came 4th, David Oldham and Neil Bradley, 5th, Pete Liddicoat and Paul Honey came in 6th and Phil Hoare and John Rowe took 7th place.
