Div-2 was won by Chris Moore with a tidy +5. He was consistent across both halves. Runner-up was Dave Tildsley with +4. His game was most consistent with +2 on each half.
The NTP’s went to: 9 th – N Duncan, 18 th – J Betland, with John managing a ‘2’. The Pro Shop Super-pin went to Mick Prior with a shot to 2.03 metres. He did manage a ‘2’, on what proved to be the highlight of his day.The ball sweep went to +1 on count back. Check in the Pro Shop if you think you earned one.
There were no visitors, although Stephen Stokes managed to swing the clubs again instead of drive a mower.
