First Stableford of the year held at Weston
Weston Golf Club held its first Stableford competition of the year.
A field of 114 players took to the Weston fairways for the first Stableford competition of the New Year.
The course was in remarkably good condition considering the amount of recent rainfall. Overall winner and third round of the Quarterly Cup Division 1 was John Davidson with 40 points. Graham Osman was runner-up with 38 and Chris Homer third with 38. Division 2 winner was Andrew Zanelli with 39 points. Second was Hong Chow with 36 and Stephen Smith third with 34.
A four-man Texas scramble was the setting for the first competition of the new year for Weston seniors. Despite the sometimes torrential downpours, the greens were excellent and scoring surprisingly good.
The winners, with a nett score of 57.9 were Maurice Miller, Michael Monaghan, John Rowsell and John Stokes. In second place and two shots adrift were Stephen Burroughs, Ian Freeman, David Holder and Nigel Jillings. Third place went to Anthony Barry, Jim Brown, Ron Kelley and David Reynolds.
