After threatening not to come out earlier in the week, the sun shone on the righteous on Captains’ Day.
The fourball betterball format with scores on the 15th hole counting double was a subtle change and made for an interesting scoreboard at the end of the day.
Three teams managed to score an incredible 50 point with the winning teams back nine holes of 30 points giving them the top prize. Congratulations to Tim Wehrle and Stuart Errington, who despite both being low handicappers, scored fantastically to win on the day. Janice Paulin and Colin Gray edged into 2nd place with 50 points, 28 of which were on the back nine. Third place went to Rita & Tony Blissett with 50 points and 25 on the back 9. In fourth place with 49 points were Brendan Stock and Derek Nutley and the final prize was won by Max Clementson and Roger Harman with 48 points and 28 on the back nine. Mike Adamantos & Derek Inglut, Anita Lockyer & Barbara Lamb and Josh Smart & Charlie Gray all scored 48 points but missed out on a prize on count back.
