Two tee boxes were booked but the club decided not to honour the booking and the last 2 flights, started from the 6th, which also delayed their tee off times. Apart this small problem, everybody had a good day on this excellent course, which was in very good condition and the greens were true but played a little slow.
I had the pleasure of watching the winner, Ted Parslow play his best round of golf for many years. He only missed two greens in regulation, and was 4 under after the first 6 holes. A couple of short putts missed and his last hole the 5 th, par 5, he was still level par, off the tee, but some very bad
luck cost him a shot. His iron from the tee ran off the fairway and he had an unplayable lie, all contributed to a 2 over round , 74 . Sorry Ted you are only cut 15 points. Next week h/cap 2…!! In second place on count back , from Hans, was Kevin Wiggins with 84 for 41 points. Cut only 1.
Many thanks to Hans Berger for the vouchers he very kindly donated today, which in effect, subsidised everybody’s golf and lunch today.
