News and information from this event

MTGS v BVRLA at STOKE PARK THURSDAY 25th September 2013

After coffee and bacon rolls in the Park Room at Stoke Park the first match got under way and saw John & Neil Smith take on BVRLA golf event champions who were off 4 & 10 respectively. It was a close well fought match with the President playing well to keep the loss respectable at 3 & 2.

Match 2 saw Gerry Lynch and Godfrey Hall lose ending 2 down after Godfrey who was a very late replacement shot 7 better than his handicap and still managed to be on the losing side.

Match 3 was a very tight affair and Neil Aldridge & Mark Hinge triumphed ending the day 1 up.

Match 4 resulted in a heavy defeat for Les Brown & Martyn Ives playing against a young lad off 5 and 22 handicapper who used all his extra shots to great advantage.

Match 5 saw Robert Cole & Martin Derrick win 3&1 over a single player as his partner for the day was a no show.

Match 6 was also very tight with Oliver Harris & James Hambling coming back from 3 down with four to play and ending the match 1 up.

The overall result was 3 matches apiece which was in the end a fair result as all the strong opposition qualified for this match by being winners in the BVRLA tournaments. The BVRLA retained the trophy and our president kept up his non losing streak going this year with only two more matches to play.
