Cocca & co take Yellow Ball AM-AM

Yellow Ball AM-AM Sunday 7th February 2016

A team consisting of Steve Cocca, Paul Highfield, Chris Laws, and Greg Burgess have won the popular Yellow Ball AM-AM competition at Rookery Park Golf Club. Players take turns to use the Yellow ball and score double points, the key to success is not to lose the Yellow Ball early in the round. As the wind picked up, scoring became more difficult and teams struggled to keep the Yellow ball with only 15 out of the 25 Yellow balls coming back at the end of the competition. Steve, Paul, Chris, and Greg's score of 117 points was three clear of runners-up Peter Bunn, Mark Elmy, Kevin Titchiner, & Barry Branch. Third place with a score of 113 points was the team of Mick Henwood, Callum Sheppard, Steve Morris, & Ray Constantine, they beat the team of Andy Coleman, Dwayne Barber, Mark Henderson, & Richard Doddington on a count back.
