Seniors Team in the prizes at Minehead Inter-Club Competition
As the 1st Inter-club competition of the New Seniors Captain’s year, the Seniors’ team took part in the Minehead Inter-club competition on Monday. Conditions were extremely difficult due to the gusting winds, meaning that it was difficult to score on the front nine. However all the Sutton pairs manage to come in with very respectable scores to achieve a very reasonable team score of 154 points. This was sufficient to put the team in the prizes, securing 4th Place.
Sutton’s best pair was Alex Lyon & Martin Howlett with 41 points.
Other Pairing scores:
Nigel Griffiths & Peter Hill 39pts
Rich Bartin & Franco Calandrini 38pts
Glyn Ottery & Bill Campbell 36pts
The overall competition was won by the home team (Minehead) with 167 points which was 10 points clear of any other team primarily due to one of their pairs scoring a massive 50pts, average pairs score on the day was 36pts.
Peter Hill was also in the prizes, getting one of only 5 Two spots on the day
Well done team!!!
