The second round of the Livery Dole Mitsubishi Winter League 2015-16 was played on Sunday in reasonable weather conditions but it was very wet under foot, writes John Barnard.

Lift and placing of balls ‘through the green’ is now allowed and is essential as the winter begins to take hold and the ball picks up lots of dirt etc.

Winning on Sunday were club president Trevor Kerridge and the current seniors knockout cup holder, Paul Renken.

They scored an excellent 46 points going out in 22 points, including a birdie on the second. They scored an even better 24 points on the way in, coming back in level gross par and off their handicaps, picking up six shots. Mark Thomas and Roger Freer were second on 45 points, just beating Graham Davies and Lee Wenham on countback.

Mark and Roger scored 23 points on the back nine, also played in level gross, but Mark’s lower handicap meant he had less shots and so they were only five better than par. It was enough for second though as Graham and Lee had a great front nine, but only 20 points on the back nine and that is where places are decided, in the event of similar points being scored.

Roger’s second place meant he moved to joint first in the winter league, sharing it with club captain John Barnard who’s fourth place on Sunday playing with Chris Roberts earnt two points so they lead on seven. It’s early days though!
