This year we had our best ever turnout at Royal Worlington, with twenty seven members. It was good to welcome back Chris Aylott, who had not played in an OFGS Meeting for many years, together with Tony Stebbings, Peter and Stephen Over each making their debut at an OFGS Meeting.
Robin Anderton, with an excellent score of 39 points, won the Captain’s Prize and the Captain, Jonny Newton, won the Minter Cup for the best scratch score of the day, 32 points.
Division 2 was won for the fourth year running by local member, Peter Howard-Dobson, with a score of 35 points. Local knowledge is obviously a great help and his handicap should surely come down soon – even a road traffic accident near Bury St Edmunds, which delayed the arrival of many people, including Peter, did not affect his game!
In the afternoon Robin Anderton and Michael Spencer won the foursomes over 9 holes with an excellent score of 22 points from Mike Schneidau and Tony Stebbings, who scored 17 points.
The full results were as follows:
|Minter Cup (Scratch)
||32 (39 on handicap)
|2nd Div 1
|1st Div 2
|2nd Div 2
|PM Foursomes (9 holes)
||Robin Anderton & Michael Spencer
||Mike Schneidau & Tony Stebbings
At the AGM, following the prize giving, Norman Porter was elected Captain of OFGS and Richard Graves was re-elected Captain of OFGS First Team. We wish them every success, particularly after our 1st Round success in the Halford Hewitt this year.
We look forward to returning to Royal Worlington on Thursday, 8 May 2014.
