On a cloudy and occasionally drizzly day 17 golfers set off from two tee boxes on time at 0800 hrs. The course played even longer than usual, after the overnight rain, with little or no run on the fairways. Greens were true although a little slow. The high scores reflected the challenging course, with only 6 players, breaking the 100.
The winner on the day, due for a win, was Ted Parslow with a gross of 85, for 42 points, cut 6 points. Runner up was Ray Funnell with 98 for 39 points, cut 1. No brotherly blood was spilt, as Geoff Parslow just beat his brother with the lowest gross of 84.
Bernard was celebrating his 100th game with Cannons and donated very generously, prizes for NTP, bottle of wine, First, second and third places, box of balls, and a wine for most golf, Peter Davies was the recipient. A big thank you, Bernard.

Another excellent lunch was enjoyed at the Tang Restaurant post game along with an appropriate number of refreshments. Richard Moss joined us for lunch and shows excellent signs of recovery after his hip replacement – we hope to see him out on the turf soon.
