4 Ball Team Stableford
Temperatures are eventually starting to dip. This weekend’s competition, although a rather chilly one, was played with only 2 temps; not bad for mid-December!

With the same format as last weekend, 38 teams of four braved the cold conditions for a ‘2 scores to count’ Stableford. The winning score was one better than last week. The team of Terry Paddon, Len Wood, Barrie Lambert and Jim Reynolds came out on top with 88 points. In 2nd place were the team out last; Jimmy Heal, Wayne Chant, Lee Gresham and Dan Holt scored 86 points. In 3rd place was the team of Andy Phillips, Neil Guppy, Chris Curtis and Richard Mathews with 84 points; and in 4th place (no twos this week) were John Cossey, Adrian Hansell, Cliff Partridge and Dave Adams.

An interesting statistic this weekend; 3 of the 4 groups in the prizes were the last 3 groups on the starting sheet. Maybe it got a bit warmer, or less windy, but I think these tee slots might be over-subscribed next week!

On the twos front, we had 19 this week which equates to £3.15 per person per two. Eric Minchin got all 3 of his groups and missed a 4th. John, Nigel and Bob all thank him for his efforts!
