Round 4 of the MWM Winter Challenge was a total contrast to round 1 with a beautiful sunny day presenting itself. A field of 53 competed in a stableford competition. Rounds 2 & 3 were cancelled because of bad weather.
Today’s winner was Roy Leitch with an amazing 45 points followed by John Plimmer on 41 points. The cut off score for table prizes was 33 points. The new leader in the MWM Winter Challenge is Kevin Win on 37 WC points followed by John Plimmer on 31. The results sheet so far is linked to this notice (PDF). Remember that 20 WC points are awarded to the days winner, 19 to second and so on. Some trickiness arises for people tied for last or 2nd etc.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No 9 hole nearest pin 3rd shot, Don Erskin; No14 nearest pin, Ed Isaac & Barry Prince; No 16 nearest pin 2nd shot Tony Parrett. Cones no prizes because taken in early by mistake. Would be prizes allocated by raffle machine.

After a wet previous week no carts were allowed so unfortunately the scheduled 2nd round of the 2 day stableford competition was postponed. This event is now scheduled for 18th July. Before our report for today a reminder that the Simms Osboldstone event is scheduled for June 6th (providing carts are allowed on the course). The first of 11 possible rounds of the Winter Challenge starts next week. This will be played as long as we get enough players each day.
Today’s winner of the replacement stableford event was John Plimmer with an awesome 40 points followed by Peter Fairfield on 38. The cut off score for table prizes was 32 points.
Novelty prizes for the day were as follows: No 9 hole nearest pin 3rd shot, Graeme Wallace; No14 nearest pin, Harold Smith; No 16 nearest pin 2nd shot not known; No 13 nearest 1st cone, Oliver Son; nearest 2nd cone, Les Buckley; 3rd cone, Ed Isaac.
Myles Davidson and Bryan Kilmister each received 8 balls from the shop twos competition.
We welcomed a new member of WGC, Noel Morgan.
Congratulations to Steve Smith who won the Professor Turf Monthly Medal for May. Steve shot a nett 70 and won it by count-back from Ed Isaac.
Ed also features next Sunday, partnering Gary Coutts and taking on Phil Carthew and Peter Knight in the final of the pair’s matchplay.
Ed’s consistency will give free rein to the big -hitting Gary to play ultra aggressive, while Peter Knight’s matchplay game will have sharply benefited from playing interclub this season. And, of course, the opposition can never relax with Phil’s stellar short game. Should be interesting…
