The SGU County Stableford took place last Friday, & again the event was well support by Long Sutton who field 7 Teams / 28 People, far more than any other club.
We went into the event with high hopes after winning both the Individual & Team trophies for the past 3 years. However, this was not to be our year, weather on the day & condition meant that we all struggled, and lost both the Team trophy and the Individual to a team from Wells which have been very successful through the season taking the Somerset Seniors Rose Bowl only the week before this event, so may be no surprise. The best Individual score 36 point, & the best Team score was 105points.
We did have one success on the day with Peter Bell winning the 70+ age group with a score of 32 pts which actually was the best Long Sutton score across all the groups.
Following Peter, best Long Sutton scores were Ian Jackaman, John Paterson, & Tim Forward, all with 30 Points.
Best Long Sutton Team score was John Paterson (30), Tim Forward (30), Rich Bartin (27), & Richard Axe (19) with score of 87 Pts (3 scores to count)
Next year Long Sutton will host the event again so hopefully we will have the advantage & can reclaim the trophies.
