Andy “Teasey’s out” victory!

Yesterday, Sunday 15th August, scratch player Andy Teasey narrowly claimed the Porters Wood Summer league title by a single point. In his final round Andy held his nerve, while his playing companions faltered, to shoot a solid 29. Andy birdied the 8th hole and made a great up and down on the last for par, to score 18 points and claim victory. His total of 147 points from his best 8 scores left him 1 point ahead of long time table topper John Hoystead and the fast finsihing Keith Fawcett. The latter moved from 11th place with two weeks remaining to shoot up the table to tie for second, winning round 10 and 11 of the competition along the way.

Jonathen Kearsley finished 4th with 144 points, while Mark Liptrot claimed 5th with 143 points. Four players tied 6th - Martin and Rick Ishmael, Phil Jackson (round 9 winner) and Eddie Willis - on a total of 142 points.

Martin Ishmael won the closest pin competition on the 7th hole, as he did in the Spring league, with another stunning iron shot!

Thankyou to everyone who participated, and a big congratulations to Andy on a thoroughly deserved victory. The Autumn league gets under way this week with the format changing to strokeplay, rather than stableford. There will also be a pairs competition running alongside the league - please ask for details.
