Huw Philips Wins A Countback To Take The Green Jacket.
This Greenwood Golf Course is always presented in great condition, and today the A and B courses lived up to that reputation.
Fairways are well grassed, but cut to allow good run. The greens appeared to have been cored and sanded recently, and had settled quite nicely allowing for good roll without being overly fast.
The weather was kind, except for our last two 4 balls. The first couple of groups were already in the Restaurant when the heavens opened. The storm was more ferocious than it seemed from our vantage point. Learned later of damage to trees and some nearby markets. Whew! We got away with that one.
We are still in low season mode, although some golfers are drifting back to town. After withdrawls and a no show we had 14 starters, so only one flight, and two near pins.
40 points was the top mark today, and this was achieved by both the consistent Huw Philips, and John Anderson, who shot his best score in quite some time. Huw took the honours and the Green Jacket via the countback .
Both scored 18 and 22, but Huw had his 22 on the countback nine.( The last nine played)
More often than not 39 points would win, but Maurice Roberts had to be content with 3rd place in only his second game back since a layoff.
Near Pins were won by Brian Talbot and Jorn Finnerup.
Scores today were generally very good. Normally we don’t disclose the score of the “Wig” winner, but Jim Norkett managed an acceptable 28 points. You would think you’re safe enough, but no, this was the lowest. Recently somebody was first place with 27 points. You never know..
Winner…………Huw Philips (14)…………..40 pts c/back
2nd Place……….John Anderson (27)………..40pts
3rd Place……….Maurice Roberts (15)………39 pts
