Halloween Stableford 2016

halloweenA spooky feel to the day laid on by the overcast conditions greeted players to the last qualifying competition of 2016.  The endless dew and soft October conditions combined to test players longer irons, distance control and scramble ability.

Of the the groups teeing off in the witching hours few managed to post competitive scores with too many tricks and not enough treats.  Spirits were lifted mid morning with Jonathon Smith having the guts to complete an overall 39 points despite blobbing the 13th, finishing 2nd overall, beaten on CPO.  Most scores were made in the Afternoon with first Martin Wood finishing agonising outside of the prizes after CPO due to a scare at 10 and 11.  Phil Jones would finish just behind Wood tied for 4th after his mid round sandwitch turned his strong front nine into a nightmare back nine.   From the penultimate group John Elliott would step forward to claim 3rd, playing like a man repossessed on the back nine after shaking off the cobwebs of a poor front nine.  Elliotts fangtastic 2 at 11 was the catalyst for the score reocording a -1 gross around the corner and a total of 38 points.  The day however belonged to Bill Foulkes with a frighteningly solid 39 points.  Built upon sdeadiness Foulkes remained corpse like throughout the day to boss the tricky conditions and take the spoils in the last White Tee competition of the Year.
