This Saturday 78 members escaped their Christmas preparations to enjoy a 3-Ball team competition. Playing off the white tees, 2 scores counted on all holes except the Par 3’s where all 3 scores counted.
The weather was once again kind to our Saturday players, which was a relief after the storms faced by The Cornwall PGA Alliance and the Farmers earlier in the week. The wind did increase through the day again but our afternoon players are well used to that!
The team scores varied vastly from 61 points at the bottom, up to a magnificent 84 points from the winning team. Richard Helleur, Nick Shelley and Malcolm Knight made up the dream team and played consistently throughout, scoring 42 out and 42 on the way in. In second, Phil Hoare, Shaun Beare and Andy Golding teamed up to score an impressive 82 points, they were well in the lead after 16 but didn’t quite match up to the winners on 17 and 18.
In third Kevin Brenton, Mike Buse and Andy Bunt scored 78 points followed in 4th place by Rod Frost, Richard Lawrence and Ben Chapman with 77 points and then Steve Buse, Mark Westlake and Lewis Wotherspoon were 5th after countback, with 76 points.
