The rain did not stop our keen golfers playing the Colonels and Metropole Cups this Saturday. It was the penultimate round of the series so those in the running for the series title were out to improve their scores in earlier rounds.
In the Colonels Cup Nick Clarke finished first with 34 points on countback from Tuck Clagett in 2nd place. Nick didn’t drop a shot on the back nine, with par after par ensuring he took the top spot.
Matthew Warr scored 33 points to finish 3rd ahead of Dennis Brown on countback. Dennis had a hole in one on the 5th – Brilliant! …and then failed to score at all on the 6th!
Andy Bunt, and Julian Darnell took 5th and 6th places with 32 points apiece.
Roger Tremain won the Metropole division with 31 points. He beat John Carhart and Ian Day on countback leaving them with 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Jeremy Knight scored 29 points to take 4th place. None of the leaders in the Metropole Cup are in the series so the 20 series points for this week go to Mike Buse.
There is just one round left to play in the Series now. Guy Hovil is top in the Colonels Cup and Phil Hoare in the Metropole Cup. To see the Series table please go to ‘Extras’.
