On Sunday, the second round of the winter competition was played with the format being three man teams, best score to count on each hole, writes John Barnard.

Les Pratt has had some lessons with the new club professional and his golf has ‘caught fire’ recently. On Sunday, he managed five birdies on his own to help his team including Lee Wenham and Geoff Lory to a medal score of 55, eleven better than par.

They were one shot better than Lawrence Hill, Chris Grubb and Hugh Dorliac with Nick Gingell, Mike Smedley and Colin Mitchell a further shot back.

The previous week’s competition was a texas scramble won by Graham Davies, Mark Pavey and Mark Thomas with a medal score of 52.0 This was just .6 better than Moray Bosence, Steve Jones and Martin Crockett. Third were Harrison Jones, Geoff Lory and Kym White.

After two rounds of the winter league, Geoff Lory is leading with eight points, Les Pratt is second with seven and then it is close with no less than six players on five points. However, it’s early days!
