Results from Colmworth – Jan 2014

Lords, Ladies & Gentlemen,

Thanks to those who attended on Saturday for our first event of the year. I would also like to thank those who helped organise Saturday & welcome the new members to the society.

The course was in a ‘slightly soaked’ condition but, clean & place was agreed so we gave it a go.  After a tussle with Mother Nature and the fact that golf is called golf because the word bastard was already being used. The following result prevailed:-

Our winner  with a cracking round of 34points was Babs. Babs will go into the EGS history books as the first ever Lady member to win an event.

Our runner up on count back was Rick. (narrowly beating Graham on the back 9.)

Nearest to the pin was last years Captain, Steve Foster.

Nearest to the pin in 2 was new member Steve Peck.  Welcome to the society Steve.

Longest drive was won by Stuart ‘The Monster’ Wren.

We then move onto the Captains Prize. They were a few Candidates, myself included. However, Zane Sheldrake continued his selfless support for this award.

Zane had never used a golf trolley until Saturday past. Unfortunately moisture set in early & he forgot about the trolley and on numerous occasions (4 times I am reliably informed) put his bag onto his back. Only remembering about said trolley when one of the wheels hit him in the back of the leg! Nice one Zane, I’m sure they will be plenty more stories before the year is out.
