Last week’s Upper Crust Monday stableford was won by John Jones with an impressive 41 points, writes John Barnard.
Round in a gross 64, he only dropped one shot, but had birdies on holes two, 12 and 13.
In second place was Mark Thomas, who certainly had an interesting 18 holes! Three bogies, two double bogies and birdies on holes one, nine, 12, 17 and 18, gave him 40 points and some improvement to his eclectic.
Mark managed to beat Pete Abrahams on countback as he also had 40 points. Pete was going well, but a no score on hole 12 cost him a place and possibly, a win.
In the Upper Crust Eclectic League table, John Jones’s win consolidates his lead on 51.1 with Kym White in second with 52.7 and then a gap to Steve Crabb and Mark Laird on 54.4

He won easily, by three points scoring 41. His front nine wasn’t great, a few bogies and a double bogie offset by a birdie on the seventh.
However, a one under gross back nine off his handicap of ten meant many points and a convincing victory.
In second place was local businessman Nick Bater, just beating Jeremy Holden on countback.
Again, he didn’t start that well but a birdie on the difficult ninth hole seemed to kick start his round and a steadier back nine completing with a birdie on hole 18 was enough.
Jeremy also birdied hole 18, but a no score on holes one and 13, kept him in third place.
