The seventh round of the Livery Dole Mitsubishi Winter League 2015-16 was played on Sunday and it also included playing for the George Meadows Trophy, a long standing club cup, writes John Barnard.
The format is a three man team, one score to count off three quarters of individual handicap, medal!
Winning easily on the day were Jerry Russell, Jeremy Holden and Mark Thomas with a round of 53, thirteen under par. They rocketed out in only 25 shots, eight below par and came back in 28. There were separate prizes for scoring a two and Mark had three, on the fourth, sixth and 14th. Jerry and Jeremy used their handicaps well to pick up other shots for a great team effort.
In second place, three shots back were Chris (CM) Roberts, Don Cooper and Vernon Ruffle. All three are mid to high handicappers so this was an excellent effort, ten better than par and included two birdies. There were four teams on 57, but highest placed on countback and taking third place were Graham Rogers, Paddy Tallon and Harrison Jones. They also managed three two’s, Paddy getting two of them but birdies on two difficult holes, eleven and sixteen made all the difference.
The winter league table is very close currently, with three players all on 17 points topping the table. They are Graham Davies, Mark Thomas and Jeremy Holden with Simon Jones fourth, one point back.
