Seniors 3-Club Stableford

A mixed bag of weather today at the racecourse (cold, wind, rain even some sun!!) for the seniors competition which was a 3-Club Stableford - two clubs and a putter!!
All things considered, the scores weren't too bad and it was a very close competition with just four points separating the top 12 places.
The top three all scored 27 points. Brian Faithfull was the count-back winner with a slightly superior back 9. Runner-up was Raymond Bilton who just edged out Richard Cross into third place.

Two 2's were recorded today. Paul Tebbutt on the 11th and Andrew Mead on the long 17th. The two's pool was shared between them.

This is the first of four competitions counting towards the Winter Medal Aggregate (best 3 Stableford scores from the 4 winter medals). The latest standings will be published after next month's medal.
