What a great day we all had at Ashridge – Perfect weather – The course in the best condition we’ve ever seen (albeit the rough was extreme), great company and the food and service provided by the club was first class.
A belated presentation was made to Digby Hebbard of the Replica Trophy of his “Player of the Year 2019” success delayed because of you know what!!!
Next Up was Oliver Tobin who won the nearest the pin in 2 on the 9th
Not present but winner of the nearest the pin on 16 was guest James Barrett
The Yellow Ball team was due to various shenanigans performed by the scorer to ensure no-one got more than one prize was won by Chris Sunderland, Rob Cowup (not in the picture), Jason Wood and Ashley Pratt the latter two selected on merit from elsewhere!!
So Matt Jones and David Kavenagh (not picured here), who were part of winning yellow ball team and only one of two teams to bring back their yellow ball – but couldn’t win two prizes, won the best team score from two other teams on 44 points having 23 points on the back 9 from 22 and 20 respectively!!
The Major prizes now with Phil Bowyer winning the Guest Prize with a great score of 36 (19 on the back) points from Ashley Pratt also 36 (16 on the back) and Nigel Anderson on 35
So to the Winner of the Finlinson Cup – Seen here presented by Captain Iain Stevenson was Steve Hurworth on 36points playing off WHI 7 (Cut 2) from Matt Jones on 35 (cut a further 1)
Some great Golf played and some not so great but a very enjoyable day.
Remember to have 23rd September and 14th August in your diary as these are the next two EPIC Events
