Results and report on 1st & 2nd Team Squad Day at Blackwell GC

Report and results on the 1st & 2nd Team Squad Day at Blackwell Golf Club - Sunday 16th March

Blackwell's 15th on a glorious March day.

 On an absolutely gorgeous March day 24 players gathered at Blackwell G.C. for the County early season 'Get Together'. The first 'friendly' match against Gloucestershire is only one month away and it was good to see such a good turn out which also included a number of County Officials.The course was, as always, presented to a very high standard although the early season preparation on the greens made putting quite tricky at times.   

The morning began with a 9 hole foursomes competition. This was won by Josh Bryan and James Robinson who had a tremendous 33 gross and 20 stableford points

Lunch was early as the players played quickly and efficiently. A very refreshing sign at a time when slow play is becoming a serious issue at many clubs. Josh McMahon was presented with the Cunningham Trophy for the most points in the County Junior Team for 2013 by Bill Thompson, County President. After a few words about expectations and aims for 2014 from the County Captain, Tony Hill and Bill Thompson, the players made their way to the 1st Tee for the afternoon 4BBB Stableford Competition.

Approximately 3hrs 15 minutes later the first group was putting out on the 18th green. There were some fine individual performances amongst the players, most notably, Josh Carpenter who was three under gross. The final results are as follows:

4BBB winners - Matt Feavyour and Paul Reeves with 40 points

Overall winners ( a.m. and p.m. scores comb ) - Josh Carpenter and Adam Norman  with 58 points

The County would like to thank Blackwell G.C. for their kind hospitality and excellent course presentation. We look forward to returning there on April 13th for the 1st Team match against Gloucestershire.
