John Cory Cup Round 7

Published: 24th February 2014

Round 7 of the 2014 Cory Cup Series played on Saturday 22nd February drew in a good sized field of 80 members. The Church course presented a few more ‘water hazards’ than normal thanks to recent weather but was otherwise presented in excellent condition with the greens in particular being as quick as ever, especially for February.

With a strong wind blowing that only increased in strength during the day good scoring was very difficult with a best of the day 34 points being posted by both Julian Darnell and David Elliott. Things were very tight at the top with the top four places only being separated by a single point, Julian secured 1st place after a count-back leaving David in 2nd place followed by Keith Thompson in 3rd place with a score of 33 points.

With two rounds to go the top of the table is very tight with a good number of players in with a shout of winning the trophy

  • John Arnold 68 points
  • Phil Jory 67 points
  • Martin Biddle 64 points
  • Norman Evans 63 points
  • Andy Beare 63 points
  • Keith Thompson 62 points
  • Richard Lawrence 61 points
