There was some excellent scoring in the Radway Inn May medal, writes John Barnard.
In Division One, Terry Jones won with an excellent 64. Absent for quite a while, he showed his injury layoff hadn’t affected his play with a very solid performance, only pars and a few bogies topped off with a birdie on the eighteenth which gave him the win on countback. In second place was Chair of Greens Mark Thomas, warming up for the Picture Match the following day. he had three birdies but a double bogie on the eighth and a bogie on the last cost him a win. Nick Gingell was third, also on 64 points. A great opening ten holes meant he was two under gross but he lost his way a little on the back nine.
In Division Two, Simon Jones had the best nett round of the day, an excellent 63. Around the middle, he had some double bogies but then a really solid last five holes, including a birdie on the seventeenth gave him a convincing win. In second place was Andrew Dean with a nett 66. Never birdie the first they say but it set him off well. A few dropped shots at the end cost him a better round. Third was Harrison Jones, inspired no doubt by his Dad winning Division One. Double bogies on the last three holes going out messed his card up.
David Ash won Division Three with a nett 66. Five pars off his high handicap were the key to his win. In second place was Mick Crane, also with 66. He had a mixed round with a birdie and some pars but four double bogies in the back nine cost him dear. Sam Searle completed the prize list with a nett 72.
