Yet another "Major" appeared on the scene to whet the insatiable appetitie of those in Leek Golf Club who need the fix of a competitive game at the weekend. In fact the numbers currently are consistently high with 137 venturing onto the fairways on this Sunday blessed with high temperatures and fast greens.
We run 4 divisions, so there were obviously 4 winners on the day:
Division 1 (0 - 9)-Winner Andy Walker continued his good form with 74-5=69 after count-back from Jordan Weaver, who also scored a nett 69. Chris Alcock came in third with a 79-8=71.
Division 2 (10 - 15)-Winner Stephen Hunt 83-12=71 on count-back from David Hughes 84-13=71. Ian Barlow and Tony Brindley had identical scores of 88-15=73
Division 3 (16 - 21)-Winner Alan Lockett 86-18=68 on count-back from Ian Bratt 87-19=68. John Curley followed with a 90-18=72.
Division 4 (21 - 28)-Winner Ian Pugh 94-26=68. Ken Weir scored 94-22=72 and Paul Bradley third with 102-27=75.
CSS was 73, the highest for some weeks.
One disappointing element of the day was the number of 46 "No Returns"
The other major item of concern was the number and variety of DISQUALIFICATIONS handed out for card violations. There were 11 in total, broken down as follows:
Card not Handed In-4; Card not Signed correctly-3; No Handicap Stated-2; NO NAME ON CARD!!!-2
It is hard to understand anybody having a card without their name on it.
Players must take extra care when signing their card-Name, Date, Handicap, Player's and Scorer's signature are all fundamentals in this area of discipline.
The most costly error on the day was AP Foxhall who scored a 66 nett, but failed to display his handicap on his card, and was duly disqualified.
