This was the 7th running of the Annual BCPC golf day and the results (using Stableford) are in! We got very lucky with the weather and even luckier to find a course to play on with short notice. It was back to the familiar surroundings of The Shropshire – the 4th time we have played there but this time we played the Gold/Silver combo for the first time. Mulligans were offered on the first tee, with it being an intimidating hole to start for some of the once a year players. Two were needed – Tod and Deb. Other than that we were off!
3 ball of Andy (Hcp 33), Tod (35) and Brian (33) all walking followed by 4 ball of Ant (28), Ant’s mate Steve (28), Joey (40) and Deb (60) in 2 buggies. Being dragged around by a yomping postman and a fit Tod took it’s toll on me and by the 15th hole rampant cramp had set into both my legs, to the point where I couldn’t move forward or backward prompting Brian to shout “What yam doing yam look like yam having a shit!!!”. Anyway stuff you boys I birdied the next hole 🙂
So the scores were totted up after Brian had disappeared – something about needing to go home and win a couple of grand at poker. Yeah right mate!
1st= Debjani Duncan – 39 Points (130 gross, 70 net, -2)
1st= Andrew Duncan – 39 Points (105 gross, 72 net, EVEN
3rd Ant Williams – 37 Points (101 gross, 73 net, +1)
4th Steve – 34 Points (103 gross, 75 net, +3)
5th Brian Yates – 29 Points (114 gross, 81 net, +9)
6th Tod Wood – 28 Points (118 gross, 83 net, +11)
7th Joey Williams – 15 Points (147 gross, 107 net, + 35)
That’s groundhog day for the winners, as they both shared the title in 2015 as well!
Most Birdies: 1, Tod, Andy
Most Pars or Better: 4, Ant
Highest single hole Stableford Score: 5, Tod (birdie on Par 3 3rd)
Lowest Gross Score: Ant 101
Player Needing a Hug at the End: Ant, he’s now scored 101 2 years on the trot – sub 100 proving illusive again.
Handicaps carried forward to 2019: Deb 57, Andy 30, Ant 27, Steve 30, Brian 40, Tod 43, Joey 61.
Well done to all involved!
