National B Level Golf Tournament – Regional Heat at Bury.
Following a late drop out, 13 players enjoyed the mainly fine weather and sunshine at Whitehead Park to battle it out for the Bury CC National B Level Golf tournament. Play was in two blocks, all play all, with many keenly fought games several of which went to the Golden Hoop.
The eventual winner from Block A was David Widdison (Bishop Monkton)with 5 out of 5 wins. Block B winner was Garry Greenwood (Chester) with 6 out of 6 wins. Garry played Mags Crossland (Sheffield), who had 3 out of 5 wins having beat Ken Eccles who also had 3 wins, in one semi-final whilst David played Keith Terry (Pendle and Craven), who had 4 out of 6 wins, in the second semi-final. Both ended in 7-5 wins for Garry and David. In the play –off for 3rd and 4th places Keith beat Mags 7-6. The final between David and Garry was eventually quite a nail biter. After hoop 2 it was 1 all. Despite good play from both players David went on to win the next 4 hoops making it 5-1. At this point Garry staged a comeback and again with excellent play from both players clinched the game on the Golden Hoop to win the tournament.
Congratulations to all and good luck in the final Garry.
