Saturday kicked off a big weekend of golf at Willow Valley. Medal 6 was played in tough conditions with Terry Brushwood winning the first class section with a 75 less 1 for a nett 74. Adam Turner finished a close second with a nett 75. The second class section seen Martin Howland score an excellent nett 72, narrowly beating Darren Bakes into second place with nett 73.
The annual Newton Trophy took place on Sunday. An excellent day was had by the 82 players competing in the third major of our season at Willow Valley. The competitors stopped in at the halfway house for a drink, something to eat and a chat, with most people reporting excellent scores through 11! Mel Watson turned out to be the days biggest winner though, returning an excellent 43 point total to lift the prestigious trophy. Shaun Helliwell, the winner of this years first major, finshed runner up this time around with an impressive total of 41 points. Shaun now holds a 30 point lead at the top of the Major Order of Merit. An impressive 6 places were paid out with the members being well rewarded for their support. Most importantly though, this day resulted in a sizeable charity donation to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance with 76 of the members kind enough to contribute £5 as a charity donation which was then topped up to a total of £501.25 by the company.
This weekends competitions seen some of the best scoring in recent memory from our members!
Ahsan Khan continued on from where he left off last weekend by winning the first class section of the Saturday Stableford, scoring 39 points. Runner up was Jon Shaw with 38 points. Shaws highlight of the round coming at the first hole, driving it close to the pin with his tee shot and holing out for an eagle 2! However, the big story of the day came in the second class section with Darren Bakes amassing an incredible total of 51 points for the victory. We can’t think of any other scores on the Willow Valley course in the 50 point bracket before so a big well done to Darren.
Sunday brought the June Medal (medal 5). Normally we see the scoring jump up a bit when the format is strokeplay, but certainly not in this case! Ahsan Khan made it 3 in a row by taking the honours once again with an excellent score of 2 under par 70 resulting in a nett 65. Chris Sweeney came second in the first class section with a nett 69. The second class section again threw in an incredible winning score, with David Fentons 84 less 24 handicap resulting in a nett 60 to win by an incredible 10 shots! Andrew Tattersfield came runner up with a nett 70.
It was another busy competition weekend at Willow Valley!
The Friday evening Stableford seen Darryl Wright pip Richard Thornton on a countback with 20 points.
The weekly Saturday competition was won by John Kellys 37 points. Runner up again was Richard Thornton via countback. David Fenton took the honours in the second class section with an excellent total of 41 points.
Sunday brought the May Stableford which also doubled as the Bridgestone Trophy qualifier. A brilliant round by Ahsan Khan seen him take the victory with 41 points. Completing the hat-trick for runner up finishes this weekend was yet again Richard Thornton! His 39 points missed out by two. Michael Burnell won the second class section with 37 points, narrowly beating Chris Riley by a single point.
