T’was a splendid evening. Dave Winters hammered his poor golf ball(s) into submission, and despite over friendly scoring, his 18 pts was too good for everyone else. Tony Nightingale, a fine sportsman in his day, hit 17 pts to take second place, with Frank Maitry managing 3rd on 16 pts. Halldor Magnusson hit a huge long drive on the 6th, and then the nearest pin on the 7th, well done the prize winners and thanks to Paul Goes for starting us all off !
Next week is the final Grand Prix event, please e-mail STUART ROWLANDS if you wish to play, venue is the Grand Ducal, on Thursday 28th August. We have to limit the number of guests to sponsors and players like Ernest who play more often than the rest of us….the starter should not need night vision goggles, so please play “ready golf” ! The meal has been arranged by Steve K.
The S-HRM Matchplay final will also take place on this evening, Andrew Paton has fallen off the planet (Italian Golf and Mafia Club connections are not talking)…meaning Ayzo van Eysinga will walk into the final against Alan Botfield, who conquered Merve (the 2007 CITCO Grand Prix Champion).
Only three moves were made in the CITCO GRAND PRIX which is boiling over as expected;
Nick Montague added another point to reach 82.
Alan Botfield moves up 3 pts to 80.
Ian Doherty remains on 79.
Steve B and Dennis stay on 78.
Craig (AKK) adds a point to 77.
Jonny Hill remains on 76.
