Report from MixVOip Pairs 2016 – Junglinster

15 pairs went out to try and beat the reigning Pairs champions Brown Botty and 15 pairs came back with their tails between their legs. Steve and Alan retained the title and won the new Don MacGregor – Dave Moody Pairs trophy with 20 points (18 of which came from Steve including a 5 on the first following an eagle).

In second place with 19 points were Simon and Dave who beat Graham and Gerry on countback.

Arnaud and Ayzo were amongst 4 teams on 18 points and deserve a mention as Arnaud shot one under to score all 18 points.

Ayzo did hit one good shot though to win the longest drive on the 10th.

Johan took nearest the pin.

After a minor misunderstanding the sponsor agreed to give the leary to Craig even though the marker had been put on the following hole as no one apart from Frank claimed to be closer than Craig’s 4m.

Johan’s two shots not to win the leary deserves to be records as it was to c. 45cm. Shame about the birdie.

Merve clearly spent too much time practising on the range beforehand and almost took the pink balls alongside Danny with 15 points but they were pipped by Tony on his FROGS comeback and Colin on 14 points. The latter pair were last seen finishing their 5th gin and tonic courtesy of Colin’s ladies tees.

Thanks go to Paul for starting and to Frank for providing some very nice alcohol as prizes.

The next event tis the final round of the CITCO Grand Prix on THURSDAY 25th August. Your starters will be the Dalrymple / Gillies duo who started the opening round.
