A clear warm sunny evening and the chance to win â‚¬ 10,000 meant that we had a very good turn out for the competition sponsored, very generously, by De Vere and thanks to David Naughton and his team.
On the evening with the rough now being cut back there were some very good scores. Dave Hopwood and Patch Lowe won on countback with a score of 22 points from Craig Ferrera and Merve. Simon Baker and Tony Nightingale (making a late start to his season) came third with 21 points.
The nearest the pin went to Craig and the longest drive went to Steve Brown who beat our current man in form Johnny Hill. For the putting competition it was again Johnny Hill who had the chance to putt for a â‚¬10,000 prize after qualifying by holing all three of his putts. Johnny then unfortunately left his big money putt short just as we were all getting ready to have a big drink on his bar bill. For the drinks it was left to Andrew Paton to kindly offer the beers to celebrate his birthday.
Our thanks to Stefano who was our starter for the evening.
We had two guest pairs both from the Golfaholics and it was the pairing of Pat Hutchines and Yun Min who just beat Andy Ferns and Sean Nevin to the winners rostrum and who proudly accepted their Frogs shirts and balls. The pair of pink balls went to Joe Lister and Tony Whiteman with 12 points.
Next competition is on Tuesday 3rd July at Junglinster where the starter will be Woodge.
Thanks again to De Vere for their generous sponsorship of the evening.
