Golf Pros Blog – Thursday 10th May

Directors Cup and Andrew Redfern Salver

The much anticipated Directors Cup was contested last weekend, with 92 golfers competing in the 36 hole event. The conditions for this annual fixture started out very cold for the 6.45am starters and did not get much warmer throughout the day. Cold winds set in and, with the course playing its true length due to the recent inclement weather, scoring was tough.

The winner of the handicap Directors Cup was a man in great form. George Robinson won the Laurie White OOM the previous week and followed it up with a fine 36 hole score of net 139 (+1) to take home the trophy.

Exeter members dominated the prizes with Stuart Jose taking second place in the overall net category, scoring 141. Third was Mark Taylor (yes – there is another one) from Tavistock. Another Exeter Member took 4th place, Dan Holt carding a net 142. Completing the Directors Cup prizes was Nick Bunn from Crediton Golf Club.

The Andrew Redfern Salver is played alongside the Directors Cup. This is the Scratch prize for the lowest gross score for the 2 rounds. Ryan Mapp claimed victory with a very good 36 hole score of 141 (+3). Ryan’s two rounds of 69 and 72 were enough to take 1st place from Peter Lawrence (71, 71; Woodbury Park) by a single shot. Also on 142 was the 1st round leader, David Blick (67, 75; East Devon).

Other prizes from the day were Best Gross AM won by Tom Woodhouse (71); Best Gross PM, James Smith (Yelverton, 67); Best Nett AM, Adrian Hansell (68) and Best Nett PM, Robert Allen (Broadstone, 66).

Congratulations to all the prize winners.

Ladies Medal 3 and Mercy Bowes

The ladies were again greeted with difficult playing conditions for their third medal of the year. Jane Wayman won the Silver division and Mercy Bowes with a net score of 71. This was good enough for a two-shot victory over Gill Whitehead. A shot further back and in third was Gill Newbery. Lady Captain Sheila Scott won the Bronze division 1 with a score of 72, with Beverley Meeke four shots adrift in second. Sandra Royston came in third with a score of 77. The bronze 2 division was a tight affair with three ladies producing the winning score of 81. Margret Drew was victorious via count back over Sharon Thorpe, who relegated Ann Harris-Deans into third.

Titleist FootJoy Assistants League

In only his third professional start on the PGA West Region, Steve Buzza won at Weston Super Mare to take the Titleist FootJoy Assistants league, event 2 title. After a quiet front nine Steve played the back nine in five under par, which included a run of four birdies in a row. His score of 66 was good enough for a one-shot victory. This is Steve’s second Professional win since turning pro in September.
