President's Team Take Mashie Niblick Honours

Mashie Niblick Sunday 23rd October 2016

The annual Mashie Niblick challenge match between the Captain's team and President's team, was won in close fashion by President Pat Barton. Only 2 points separated the two teams in the closest match for years with Pat's team scoring 726 points to Captain Martin Scott's team score of 724 points.

In the pairs competition, a recent handicap cut has not affected Ian Foxton's ability to pick up a win. Along with partner Tony Molloy they scored an impressive 45 points to edge runners-up Martin McColgan and Simon Howes by one point. 3 pairs scored 42 points to pick up the remaining prizes, in-form Nigel Wigg and Kevin Blowers beating Dwayne Barber & Andy Coleman, and Ian Howlett & Simon West on a count back. A special mention for John Marjoram, who birdied three of the four par 3's.
