Saturday the 11th February was not necessarily a day that enticed a lot of players, with a very cold easterly and some showers thrown into the mix. Having said that, 68 took part in the 4 Ball Better Ball Joker competition that offers each player 2 jokers (one front nine, one back nine) to double their stableford score on that hole.
Josh Greenaway and John Paul had an impressive 48 points, winning by one over Andy Bunt and Nigel Connolly and by two points over Dennis Brown and Matthew Warr. All three teams were able to conjure up some 6-pointers, which helps the card nicely. Josh & John actually had a blob on the 6th while Andy and Nigel had a blank on the last - oh what could have been!
With the recent winter weather condiditons, these are just the types of competitions that allow the men to keep playing their golf without the pressure of the qualifier added in. But next week will be different with the next round of the John Cory Cup approaching.
