FEDERATION HANDICAP GOLF TOURNAMENT – WHITEHEAD PARK 15th JULY 2017
Ten players from six clubs took part in the 2017 Federation Handicap Golf tournament at Bury.
The day started fine but shortly became rather damp with the almost constant drizzle, and occasional heavy shower. The format was block play with the winners of one block playing the second place from the other block. The remaining players also had other games to play. Seventeen of the original block play of twenty games went at least to hoop eleven with three of those going to the Golden Hoop.
In Block A – Roger Edwards from Craig Y Don gained 1st place with Janet Smith from Fylde in second place. In Block B – John Gilmartin from Bury came first with Terry Dunbar from Southport in second place.
Semi-finals: Roger beat Terry on the Golden Hoop and John beat Jan at hoop 11.
Final: Won by Roger 7-4 whilst the play off for 3rd and 4th places was won by Jan 7-5. Well done and Congratulations Roger.
All enjoyed the day despite the weather. Thanks to all the Bury members who helped on the day.
