Round 2 of the Battle Trophy took place on Saturday 20th April in glorious sunshine and with a good sized field of 88 members playing anticipation for some good scoring was high.
Despite playing very little competitive golf in recent months Shaun Hawken showed there was no rustiness to his game posting a fantastic nett 65 to take first place. The tussle for second place was very tight after both Dan Witts and Steve Smith shooting nett 68’s with Dan’s better back nine score securing second place.
A special mention to the unlucky John Glynne-Jones who managed to shoot a nett 75 despite a 17 on the 16th hole.
Things were tight at the top for the Men’s 3 Ball Competition played on Saturday 27th April. The top four teams could all only be separated by count back with all four posting a score of 72 points.
The team of John Pease, Pete George and Pete Chapman running out winners followed in second by Mike Buse, Andy Bunt and Matt Westlake. Rounding out the top three was the trio of Kevin Parker, Danny Hoare and Tris Lang.
