RWS June 2nd Ludlow Bowl and Compton Cup – Round 2
There were almost 100 competitors across both competitions which are run as bogey style events, playing against the course. Many congratulations go to Sam Pollard, 3 up on count back, for his win in the Ludlow Bowl and his second win of the season, which means he now retakes the lead on the Order of Merit board. There were a huge number of players who shared in the twos sweep and well done to Phil Curtis who managed it twice! Congratulations also to Roger Alexander who won round 2 of the Compton Cup 3 up.
The next two competitions are Thursday 14th June and Saturday 16th June – so get out and get practising to try to play a couple of consecutive blinders!
The full results are as follows:

RWS April 28th Monthly Medal
Conditions were much harder than last week so many congratulations go to Stuart McNeill for being the only player to break his par. Make sure you complete your cards correctly. If cards are not submitted or are competed incorrectly, you will not be awarded the 25 points for entering. That may seem small change now, but come September, those extra points could be critical.
