The last round of the John Cory Cup was played on Saturday. 72 members braved the drizzle to fight for the remaining series points, not a single ball was tampered with, all played as gentlemen and not Australian Cricketers.
Tristan Lang was on fire, he scored a fantastic 44 points to win. Playing off 20, Tris started with a birdie on the 1st, to score 20 points on the way out, and then with another birdie on the 14th, he had 24 points on the way home. Tris' handicap has been cut by 3.3 to 16.2.
In second place Martin Wilson scored a very respectable 39 points, he had birdes on the 8th and the 14th. Neither Tris nor Martin had entered the series so the all important 20 series points went to Rob Cook in 3rd place with 38 points.
Andy Beare finished in 4th place on countback with 37 points, ahead of John Pease who also scored 37 points. Phil Hoare had 36 points in 6th place ahead of Richard Lawrence, Norman Evans, Matthew Warr and Richard Hawken respectively who all had 35 points.
The Winner of the John Cory Cup Series 2018 is James Hutchings. James had done enough in previous rounds to fend off Rob Cooks best efforts on Saturday but only just. Both players finished the series with 59 points, and both had a 4th best score of 15. James took the top spot with his 5th best score of 11 beating Rob's 8.
