Philip shows his worth in Christmas stableford
2:00pm Monday 30th December 2013 in Somerset Sport
WITH the recent stormy weather abating for Saturday’s (December 28) Stableford and the course presented in excellent condition with 18 proper greens and all grass tees - there were some superb performances to report after the Christmas break:
Division 1 - Philip Worth - 39, Lewis Norton-Collins - 38 (after count back), Glyn Petrie - 38 and Andy Fisher - 37.
Division 2 - Barry Hall - 38, Steve Richards - 37, Bernard Harris - 36 and Steve Willoughby - 35 (after count back)
With a fair southerly wind helping on the front nine before the turn, and a tougher back nine to follow, with what can be described as a good two club wind Philip Worth returned a very creditable 39 points playing off his six handicap.
It was extremely tight at the top of Division One and Two, but with a full field the course was more playable than it has been in the last few weeks, as evidenced with a competition CSS of 72 and 10 players beating their handicap.
The Channel course was also extremely busy, through a combination of members and visitors who enjoyed the great setting, greens, tees and après golf. Burnham is definitely blessed by its location and sandy sub soil that drains so naturally.
