Captains Day 2015

Captains Day was a huge success this year. As Alex mentioned at the presentation, this is the second time we have decided to operate a two-tee start and so far it seems like it has been taken well among the members. This way the presentation can be at a more practical time of the day and as a result we can get more people attending them! As always we are open to feedback, so if you have any feelings to convey, be sure to speak to Alex or anyone on the committee - to familiarise yourself with all of the committee members and their respective roles, check out the Committee Page.

With the field heading out on the course of both the first and tenth tee's from 9.00am, it looked set to be a perfect day, not a cloud in the sky and hardly a breath of wind. Perfect scoring conditions it would seem, and so it proved. With three players posting what turned out to be the winning score of 41 points!! In total, there were a staggering 26 playes playing to their handicap or better!

A big thanks needs to be put out to Alex for the number of fantastic prizes he put up for the event:

Champion Richard Moxham walked away with a driver of his choice, second placed Jack Parker managed to get hold of a new putter of his choice and Malcolm Reardon won a brand new Vega wedge. All three of these prizes included a free fitting session at the Robert Rock Academy! 

 

Chris Jones who I had the pleasure of playing with on the day, did not fare too well, coming in with the lowest points total, and was presented with a lesson with Mark Trow. Finally, some of those who stayed on for the presentation were rewarded for their loyalty with a sleeve of Pro V1's following a random draw, with Richard Moore Champion James Guard one of those getting in on the action!

 

Once again we must thank the team that helped with the scoring on the day with our new leaderboard in use once again. This was a great day for everyone and hopefully we can have more like this in the future.
