Sylvia wins Captains Day

   Thirty six players travelled to El Saler for David Knight's Captain's Day a stableford competition. One guest this week Chris Field an ex long standing  member who was welcomed back into the fold. The course was mainly in good condition but maintenance on the greens made putting difficult with the ball wobbling off line quite a lot. The Captain with a big help from his wife Lesley supplied a packed lunch which was very well received.

   The Winner of the Captain's Trophy and a Cleveland Golf Bag was Sylvia Mortensen (Hcap 20.8) with a par breaking 37pts, well done Sylvia. Second place went to David French (Hcap 11.7) with 36 pts, third was Steve Davis (Hcap 12.8) with 35pts. In fourth spot on count back was Roger Vicars (Hcap 20.5) with 32pts, in fifth place also with 32pts and losing on count back was Roy Booth (Hcap 20.8)). Allan Wilson (Hcap 18.4)took sixth place with 31pts.

   There were four nearest the pins on holes 4, 9, 12 and 17 and was won by Derek Gray, Steve Davis, Tony Gray and David Knight respectively. Two longest drives today saw Sylvia Mortensen win the Ladies and Glynn Braidley the Mens. There was two two's achieved today one went to the Player of the day Sylvia "Back in form" Mortensen and Paul "I can fly anything" O'Gorman.

   Two evenly matched matches were played but suprisingly were easy wins for Michael Morley 7 & 6 against Steve Robinson and David French 6 & 5 against Steve Cliffe. The football card was won by the irrepressible Wendy Sullivan with Bradford.

   The Captain ( Me ) would like to say a big thank you to everyone at El Saler for making my day such a special occassion, it was e very good day.
