Club July MedalLast Sunday of the month and that can only mean one thing it's medal week.The weather was not looking good when we started with dark clouds all around us and it was not too long before the wet gear was on for most of the 40% of the club that turned out today. As the round went on you could see a few guys who had not packed their wet gear and were looking very damp indeed, thus due to constant rain a few declined the chance of doing the back nine. Even in awful conditions there was still some excellent golf played and none better than our: Captain, (Secretary, Sheriff, Barman, Cleaner, and general dogs body as he like to let us know) who went round in an amazing 4 over. Gross 74, Nett 60 well done sir. Other good rounds from Andy Mace 77(G)68(N), Russ Newman 84(G)69(N).
|July Medal 2015||Shots - H/C = Total|
|Div 1 Winner & Lowest Gross Score||Stephen Snell||74 - 14 = 60|
|Div 2 Winner||Russ Newman||84 - 15 = 69|
Well Keith and Fred chose the wrong week to take on the Captains challenge as the skipper and myself (especially the skipper) was on form this week. They were behind from the word go as Fred had suddenly forgotten how to play golf and Keith was still trying to cope with getting his head around semi-retirement. The skipper was on fire as he took a par on the 1st followed by a bogey on the second and then 3 straight pars on the 3rd, 4th, & 5th and a birdie on the 6th to put himself back to level par by the 7th. He then followed that up with another par and a couple of bogeys to leave himself 2 over for the front 9 and with myself coming in 5 over for the front 9 after taking a 7 on the 2nd they never stood a chance this week. And with Steve going around the 18 holes shooting a gross 74 net 60 he was untouchable and was a worthy July monthly medal winner. Well done mate some fantastic golf played out there by your good self. Next week Antony and John Page take on the Snellanator/Vice in the Captains Challenge. Next week is the Wisher Cup Qualifier and the Captain has asked if you cannot make any of the rounds not to enter the qualifier please. (Dates: 2nd Rd 9th August and the final is the 20th September)

Andy MaceCongratulations to Andy Mace for becoming the undisputed club champion by winning both the Gross and Nett score comps that have been running for the last few weeks. This week Andy came in with another very respectful score of 38 so 3 over and a nett 33. Commiserations to John W who has been playing sound golf and was leading both comps until Andy’s 3rd card. John came 2nd in both comps. Good to see Antony back and playing very well coming in with a gross 38, nett 35.

Penultimate round of the club championship and the weather was very unsure of what it was going to do to the 18 brave souls that turned out today. Well the lowest gross score this week went to......yes you guessed it John W with 39 and I must say having played with him it was very solid golf and was pleased to see that Bernie’s putter was working far better than the one John used on Friday at Cray Valley. (Go on John buy it you know you want to.) Other good rounds were Mark Nelson and Andy Mace with 40 and good to see Mark stay on the course this week even with a little bit of rain, unlike last week when it was too much for him. Well the top 3 are the same this week only 2nd & 3rd changing order between Peter Carroll and Russ Newman, but there are a few good cards that have only played 2 rounds knocking on the door. So all to play for next week as it’s the final round. Below is the table so far for the 2 Club Championship Comps:
|Postion after 3 rounds||Championship Net Score||Championship Gross Score|
|1st||John Wilfort 99||John Wilfort 117|
|2nd||Russ Newman 104||Peter Carroll 122|
|3rd||Peter Carroll 107||Russ Newman 128|

This week was the 2nd round of the club championship and the weather was not very kind to us. It started off fine but then went downhill very quickly with wind and rain.
This did not stop some good golf being played by some of the members especially Andy Mace who went round in 36 so 1 over or 5 under once his H/C is taken off….well played. Also sound golf from Dan P 39 and Richard 40.
Below is the table so far for the 2 Club Championship Comps:
