Thunder and Rain Slows Scoring at Royal Lakeside
Like it’s next door neighbor, Royal Lakeside is a relatively flat course and usually conducive to good scores. The greens have a tiered design and can trick the unwary, running quite quickly and true. Fairways are well grassed, but starting to dry around the edges.
There were some good scores from the Links golfers today, but without the storm, albeit short and sharp, we wonder what might have been.However a few more of these storms or rains will fix the drying out problem soon.
In his first appearance at Links for a while, Huw Philips defied the storm and came in with 40 points to take out “A”Flight. Mark Cooper also did well off his low handicap to record 38 points to get 2nd place. Then Phil Mitchell won a countback from Kevin McEntee, both on 36 points.
The winner of “B”Flight almost wasn’t! Matt Conin presented his scorecard as the envelopes were about to be sealed. He had 41 points. Mogens Melander with 38 points got 2nd spot , and then another countback saw Colin Sevice win by a nose from Richard Dobson, both on 37 points.
For those who had not yet won anything we have a “best front nine” and a “best back nine.
John O’Sullivan managed 21 points to win best front 9.
Christian Boysen with 20 points took the honours on the back 9.
