Mijas Golf, Las Largos Club 26th May 2016
Today was individual stableford points and was sponsored Simon Waby. The course was in great condition, apart from the greens they are recovering from holitining. The weather was perfect and getting warm.
Today was a big day, it was the final of this seasons Knock Out, between Bill & Pat, it was this seasons last chance to get in the Champions Of Champions and it was also the final week to in this seasons Order Of Merit, with Jerry leading by 25 points all he needed was one point to secure this years prize! The only person who could catch Jerry was Simon but he had to win.
Todays winner with 37 points was Simon Waby off 8.5 cut to 7.2. Second was Tony Sidebottom with 34 points off 21.5 cut to 21. Third was Eugene Kerr also with 34 but not such a good back nine off 14.2 cut to 14.1. Nearest the pin in one was Jerry Halford, nearest in two was Bob Sawyer. Our Guest prize went to Anthony.
After going 3 up in four holes bill couldn't hold Pat off, Pat turned in round to be one up on the last, but then lost the last hole to give bill a chance! The tie had to go to count back on the back 6, with Patrick Gallet winning! The last Champions Of Champions place went to Simon, as Simon had done his part and won, the big question had Jerry got his point? Well no he didn't so this years Order Of Merit is tied with both Jerry Halford and Simon Waby on 264 points, it is now up for discussion if this prize is shared or it is decided another way.
Well done to all our winners today, we had a good afternoon at the Red Dragon.Thanks to Simon for the prizes. Thanks to Trish and all her staff.
Thanks to all the members that have made this year fun and competitive.
