The September Monthly Medal, sponsored by McFeeter’s Motor Museum, was played on Saturday with the field of 68 returning some variable scores.
Barry Shine won the A-Grade with 72 nett, on count back from Alf Davies. Both were consistent scorers but the handicap helped Barry.
The B-Grade saw Garry Collits defend his title from last month, proving that a good holiday lasts a long time. His 69 nett was a good margin ahead of runner-up Scott Kirkman on 73 nett.
James Morgan blitzed the C-Graders with his 62 nett, but unfortunately for him the medal went to Don Ridley with 68 nett.
James still gets his prize though.
The ball sweep went to 75 nett on count back, going to: 62 – J Morgan; 68 – D Ridley; 69 – G Collits; 71 – B Squires; 72 – B Shine, A Davies, R Besgrove; 73 – S Kirkman, M Cartwright, R Taylor, B Doyle; 74 – S Sallaway, D Bernardi, S Grallelis, A Borger and 75 – J Zannes, R Morris, D Churchill.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – J Morgan; 18th – S Kirkman. Scott scored the only ‘2’ of the day. Danny Acret was the lone visitor, enjoying the company of old friends if not the weather.
With the greens under renovation it seemed that 3-putts were the norm as well as challenging. The ‘borrow’ was sometimes difficult to determine and putts bobbled hither and tither. But the greens were generally receptive to high approach shots. ‘At Card Draw for the Day’s Comp’ went to Paul Kay.
