Late starters enjoy favourable conditions

Late starters at Burnham & Berrow enjoyed more favourable conditions in the latest club Stableford.

The late starters took advantage of more favourable conditions in the club Stableford at Burnham & Berrow Golf Club.

Club champion Ron Schroder took the honours in Division 1 with 38 points, and at the same time reduced his handicap back down to scratch. Ron picked up 18 points on the front nine getting to the turn in one over par 37.

Picking up three birdies and one bogey on the back nine, he returned in two under par for 20 points and 38 in total, edging out current club captain David Huxtable, who also scored 38 points, but lost out on countback.

Third spot went to last years’ captain Adrian Deakins, who also plays off a one handicap and scored 37 points. He also played the back nine in two under par, but will feel that taking four shots to get down from the front of the green at the par five eighth hole cost him the top spot.
