This year, the popular Williams Cup 4BBB series, will be played over 6 rounds with the last round in November. The first round was this past Saturday and 72 members were keen to get started with some series points. The weather in the morning did not look promising and it was a wet round for the early birds and those that followed them. By the afternoon the sky was brighter and those playing were in short sleeves!
Andy Bunt and John Paul won with 42 points. Bunty birdied the 1st to give them a good start and continued to play well with another birdie on the 14th, J.P. also shot two birdies, one on the 12th and one on the 18th to finish off as well as they’d started. They only narrowly beat Jamie Beare and Danny Hoare on countback, in 2nd place. Jamie and Danny scored 26 points on the front nine but tailed off on the back nine. Jamie had two birdies on the 5th and the 7th.
In third place, Andy Carthew and Mark Luxton had 39 points, ahead on countback of James Hutchings and Chris Jennings in 4th and Paul Clemens and Matthew Warr in 5th place. Finishing 6th, and just in the prizes, Phil Jory and Pete Liddicoat has 38 points.
