Colonel's/Metropole Cup (Round 3)

Published: 12th May 2014

It was another blustery day for the Colonels/Metropole Cup on Saturday.  The weather was as changeable as some people’s golf!   A field of 69 braved the storms but not all claimed victory with a large number of Nil Returns. 

Division 1 was won by Andy Bunt with a score of 32 points, followed by John Pease on 31 points.  Richard Hawken took 3rd place on 29 points and Shaun Beare 4th with 28 points.

Nigel Buse won Division 2, with 30 points.  2nd Keith Thompson, 3rd Ken Perring and 4th Matthew Warr were all on 28 points and Joe Tamblyn was in the prizes at 5th place on 26 points.

The day also included qualifying for the Lombard Trophy - Andy Bunt will play with Nick Williams in the Regional Finals at Parkstone.

...a little bird (Tris Lang) just flew into the office and told us about Shaun Beare's great drive on the 5th.  Landing 8 foot from the pin, Shaun marked his ball, for it then to be blown away by the wind!  He marked it again, and the wind blew it again right towards the road.  The ball clung on just off the green and Shaun did manage to make his par.
