Captain's Drive-Out Texas Scramble Sunday 19th March
A lovely bright but breezy morning greeted the 100+ golfers who took part in Martin Scott's last competition as Club Captain. The Texas Scramble format is always popular as it gives the teams plenty of opportunity to score a few birdies and eagles. The winners with a superb score of nett 51.6 were the team of Conal Downing, Reece Ritchie, Ross Ritchie, and Russell Ritchie. Runners-up with nett 52.4 were the team of Paul Durrant, Paul Gardiner, Ray Constantine, and Mike Chaplin. Third place were the team of Steve Whiteside, Matt Freeman, Steve Powell, and Julian Peak with nett 53.8. With the team of Jack Blowers, Guy Mummery, Calvin Sherwood, and Neal Davey in 4th with their score of 54.0. Nearest the pin prizes went to, 4th Glen Kemp, 9th Darren Theaker, 11th Jack Blowers, 14th Keith Shales, and 16th in 2 Trevor Gooch.
Following the prize presentation Martin gave a speech in his own unique style, thanking members for their support over the last year. Martin is a bit of a whizz when it comes to the technology side of things, and he used some sound bites via the PA system to add a little bit of humour to the speech.
