Battle Trophy Round 1

Published: 6th March 2017

It was the first round or the Battle Trophy Series on Saturday.  This year the medal series will be 5 rounds played throughout the Spring and Summer.   3 of the 5 rounds will count.  The weather was not ideal for a medal round on Saturday with rain and strong winds gusting to 40 miles per hour!  The morning was slightly better than the afternoon with the prize winners coming from rounds played earlier rather than later.

Richard Lawrence won with a net 70, he played steady throughout making par on 10 holes.  Richard beat John Rowe on countback.  John, having been disqualified last week, came back fighting!  John had a net 70 but hit the lowest gross of the day with a 78 gross.  Chris Jennings was 3rd with net 73 followed by Dave Pooley, Nick Shelley and Andy Griffiths all scoring nett 75.  John Pease took 7th place on countback with net 76 from Andy Carthew in 8th place.

Phil Jury didn’t make it into the prizes with his nett score of 86 but he did bag a bottle of whiskey with his hole in one on the 5th.   Phil’s 5 iron tee shot flew way out to the right, via Brea Hill before finding its way safely into the hole.
