Senior Foursomes 7th May 2015 - Report and Results
Senior Foursomes Report and Results - Fulford Heath G.C. 7th May 2015
Blustery conditions, sunny periods and rain squalls typified the day at Fulford Heath. 28 seniors from across the County battled through the conditions as well as having to contend with some tricky pin positions in this prestigious foursomes championship. Despite some heavy overnight rain, the course was in fine condition for this early season competition and much credit must go to the greens staff who could be seen working hard on the course throughout the day.
Only two pairs managed to break 80 gross. They were Peter Craddock and Mike O'Donnell (Redditch G.C.) and Martin Cartwright and Tom Mooney ( Fulford Heath G.C.) who both tied on 76. The 2nd best gross was from Ricky Chima and Roger Martin with an 82 whilst Bill Thompson & Steve Carpenter finished in 3rd place with an 83.
A play-off was required over the 1st, 2nd and 16th holes to decide the winners. Solid play and excellent putting from both and Craddock and O'Donnell secured them a fine win by one stroke.
