There were signs of lockdown rust in many of the early swings, but a number of people put all that behind them and managed to pick up a prize or two.
Doug Taylor (2nd Hole) and Richard Carpenter (11th Hole) won Nearest the Pin prizes.
Mark Lucas achieved the Longest Drive on the 8th Hole.
James Surridge just managed to pip Mark Lucas for the Guest Prize.
In the member’s competition, 4th placed Phil Reeves was edged out by event organiser Peter Wood for 3rd place.
One of the fiercest rivalries in sport was once again in evidence when it came to the award of Winner and Runner-Up prizes. Hankley Common has seen previous epic battles between Bob Harper and Cameron Grant, with Cameron often victorious in recent years. However, on this occasion, Bob Harper took the honours with a winning score of 35 points – on countback.
Thanks were given to Peter Wood for organising the meeting so efficiently and Narrow Aisle Ltd, through John Maguire, for their generous sponsorship.
After the success of this one, the Summer Event at Copt Heath GC near Solihull on Thursday 24th June can’t come around too quickly.
