Low scoring continues!

With the Porters Wood Autumn golf league into it’s 4th week the low scoring of week one has continued. With the course in fantastic condition, and playing a little easier now it has softened up since the rock hard conditions of Summer, players have continued to produce personal best scores.

In week 2 Mark Liptrot scored a fantastic 6 under par to claim the win narrowly from Phil Jackson (4 under). In week 3 John Bennett posted a best ever nett 21 (8 under) to win by a massive 6 shots from the rest of the field, Lee Phillips claiming second place with 2 under par.

The Fourball Better Ball compitition has also started with John Bennett and Eddie Willis beating a rather unfortunate Phil and Jonathen Kearsley on the 9th green. The match ebbed both ways and finsihed in near pitch black conditions on the last hole - Eddie Willis making a crucial par 4. In Group B John Hoystead and Paul Sinker outplayed Martin Ishmael and Andy Teasey to win 2 & 1 with some very impressive golf. In gale force winds Paul in particular prodcued a couple of stunning shots to settle the match.
