Aled Bebb gives us his first report of the year.
Despite the wintry weather experienced in December, Club members kept turning out in surprising numbers for the Club Competitions.
Winter League 3
In Category 1, Dylan Morris (6) with 39 points beat James Laing (9) also 39 points on countback. Leading in Category 2 and also the all round winner with 42 points was Wayne Gornall (15) from James Harvey (11), 39.
In Category 3, Anthony Evans (20) with 38 just held off Iwan Evans (25) into second place with 37 points.
Winter League 4
On another wet and blustery day when just twenty six players braved the elements , Wayne Gornall now playing off 13, led the way with 39 points from another in form player Arwyn Morris (15) 37 points. Clive D Williams (12) with 36 points and Mark Jones (10) also with 36 points were third and fourth.
In the last competition before Christmas, Graham Tapp (13) led the way with 37 points with Jonathan Evans (4) 36 runner up. Chris O’Rourke (22) with 35 was third.
Another Stableford in the first week of the New Year saw nearly fifty players turn out enthusiastically.
In Category 1, Chris Tapp (9) 40 beat John W Davies (7) 37.
In Category 2 Martyn Haynes (10) with 41 beat Nick Morgan (12) 39.
Finally, in Category 3, Lloyd Evans (19) with 42 points led the way and was the overall winner from Mike Daniell 37 points off 19.
During the time leading up to Christmas, eighteen Tuesday Cut Throat players played in the Billy Morris Turkey Trail in memory of one of the founders of the “Llanilar” Tuesday Cut Throat. Played over six weeks with the best four scores to count, the stand out player who took the top honours with 159 points (averaging nearly 40 points a game) off a handicap of 7 was Jeremy Edmunds. Joint runners up on 149 points were Mike Bradley and Harvi Singh with Phil Small narrowly losing out in fourth on 148 points. The excellent organiser of the Turkey Trail, Alun Jenkins on 141 points was fifth. Jeff Hughes 140 points and Dai “Gupte” Davies 139 were sixth and seventh, each getting the traditional leg of the Turkey.
The club brought their successful year to an end when a good turnout of members celebrated New Year’s Eve at the club hosted and fed by the excellent Deby, the Club’s popular caterer.
