Blackwell 19.2.18 - Results

prev next

It is a shame that Blackwell would not give us a longer period from the original date of this event on Jan 22nd, which was postponed because of snow.  Had that been possible, I am sure we would have had more players.

As it was, a small but very select band attended this event which, due to the reduced numbers,  was played as an individual Stableford.

The overnight night rain ceased before play commenced at 10.30 and, thankfully, some weak winter sun smiled down on us to ensure that brollies were not required.  Although the greens were slow, they were true and considering there was not much run in the course, coupled with it being an individual competition, the pace of play was acceptable with everyone round in four hours.

As the Irish contingent’s mathematics fell foul of the fact that they all scored more than twenty and ran out of fingers and toes to calculate the total,  prize giving was slightly delayed. I managed to do a reasonably amateur impression of Rachel Riley to rectify the small errors.

It was certainly a day for the low handicappers. 

Robert Taylor was beaten into third place on a count back by 4-handicap, Teetours-regular Alan Wrigley.  Alan’s love life has recently taken a magical turn; the object of his affections is a new Callaway driver,  which will have firmly cemented it’s place in his heart by winning the longest drive. Alan was clearly brandishing all his clubs with alacrity as he also won nearest-the-pin and with 35 points took second place.

It was Tom Lowe’s maiden visit to Teetours last week, making the commendable journey up from south of Bristol to play at Whittington.  He obviously enjoyed himself and settled into his stride early at Blackwell.  He narrowly beat Alan Wrigley with 36 points but I know Alan was admiringly respectful as Tom plays off 3!
