The first medal competition of the year was contested at the weekend, writes George Carr.
Most social golf is played in teams of two or more where the best score will be counted.
However, medal play is very exacting; every duffed chip, snap-hooked drive, fluffed bunker shot and even the dreaded shank, must be faithfully recorded on your card.
In short, all is revealed to the great computer in the club house and sometimes, even your best friends can’t look you in the eye as they shake hands and mutter ‘Well played’ on the eighteenth green!
Played in three divisions by handicap on a very difficult course on the day the results were as follows. In Division One Kevin (Trippy) Trivett birdied the first two holes to finish with a net 64, enough to earn him the first medal of the year. Kevin Legg, (with the lowest gross score of the day - 70) gained second spot with a net 65 whilst Dave Cowler’s net 68 gave him third spot although three players matched his score he survived on count-back edging out Trevor Kerridge, Nick Bater and Will Hastie.
You may also want to watch:
John Barnard won the second division with a net 63 and Carl Sheen the third division, with the lowest net score of the day, 61 and so there you have it. Well played to you all.
