Hansen Beats Hot Rod to the Line at Lakeside on Wed. Mar,14  S/ford

Royal Lakeside had the pleasure of a visit by the Links Golf Society on Wednesday, 14th March as more than three dozen golfers chose to test their skills in the exquisite course.

As always the course was in excellent condition with well grassed fairways and greens which were a little deceptive in pace with a more than grainy element than had been seen for a while there.

The two flights were divided at twenty and under and play got underway on time on a not too crowded course. In the second flight countback was needed to separate second from third place as Dave Moriarty’s back nine took the day from newbie Mark Samuels, both finishing with 35 points.

The flight winner was out of sight as Canadian Rod Stevens was in turbo-mode scoring 43 points to win by the legendary distance.

The top flight saw more top quality action as Mogens Melander scored an excellent 39 points for third place, three behind Masa Takano who finished with a gross 76 giving him 40 points for second.

The flight winner, on his final appearance this visit, was Danish golfer Soren Hansen whose 43 points also took the green jacket, nosing out “Hot” Rod on countback (22/21).

Near pins were claimed by Masa Takano (3), Tom Wilson (6), Huw Phillips (12) and Bobby Whannel (15) whilst a lacklustre display for the rest of his round saw Bobby receive the wig for the lowest score of the day.

The course was well and truly beaten-up by three golfers on a fine golf day but it still holds some secrets in store for our next visit next month. Good courses don’t give all their secrets up at the first challenge to their status. Next time may well be different.
