Bill Laughs His Way To Green Jacket.

 

Some days it all just works and makes for an enjoyable day out.

Of the final 32 players on the start sheet 24 of them boarded the buses as allocated. Step one.

Then a pleasant drive of only 50 minutes to the Greenwood course, easy check-in, even though there was only the one assistant instead of 2, then all assembled at the muster area.

The course was busy and the starter told us we must wait 10 minutes, so time for a putt.

Our first group, a four ball got away right on time and, with Phil calling up the groups in order, all went smoothly.

How many different ways can one describe just how good this course is. We played the A and B nines and were presented with grassed and nicely mown fairways and Greens were first class, slightly slower than we expected, but great to putt on. And yes, the usual wet areas around the bottom of the Greens. If that is the only complaint, we’ve done ok.

After the round all cards were handed in, no late comers, and all once again went to their allocated bus….bliss.

Bill Copeland is a man who enjoys his golf and his infectious laugh as we went around rubbed off on our group and the caddies making for a fun and relaxed day.

Bill headed up the “A” flight  with 36 points off his handicap of 11, and the top score of the day.

We’ve mentioned before that Peter Wilson doesn’t play that often, but when he does is usually in the call of the podium. And so it was today taking second place with a nice 34 points.

Another one seemingly always at or near the top is Takeshi Hakozaki who took third place with 33 points.

In “B” flight John Anderson was Club House leader with only one last card to come in. Then came Len Jones to pip him on the post.

Len scored 35 points to John’s 34 pts. Coming in third was Lady golfer Helene Lindberg with 32 points, beating husband Mikael on a countback.

 

Four Near Pins out again today, but no-one could get on to the almost 200 yard A2.

 

Rod Stevens (A6),   Thorsten Jodehl (B2), Maurice Roberts (B5)

 

Next were the Best Nines.

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)…Dave Moriarity…..17 pts c/back

Best Back Nine ( non winners)…Larry Slattery…….17 pts

 

Winner..”A” flight………Bill Copeland (11)……………….36 pts

2nd Place…………………… Peter Wilson (8)………………….34 pts

3rd Place………………..Takeshi Hakozaki (14)……………33 pts.

 

Winner “B” flight……….Len Jones (29)……………………….35 pts

2nd Place…………………John Anderson (29)………………34 pts

3rd Place…………………Helene Lindberg (23)…………….32 pts c/back

 

Bill Copeland got to wear the Green Jacket at last ! Then Phil did the rounds to tease a few into thinking they would get the “wig”, before settling on Frank Baker, who was already making his way to the front, knowing it was coming.
