Results 2019

Congratulations to Steve Burton – winner of the RWS 2019

Winner Steve Burton with Club Captain Gerry Stephens

On Saturday 19th October, the RWS final took place at Woodhall Spa on the Hotchkin course. This event followed 24 competitions over the year at MMGC and a recent 30 man playoff at Melton Golf Club to produce the final 6 players.  The format for the day was an individual Stableford played off a full handicap. The golfers teed off straight into a light cool breeze, accompanied by a very light drizzle, which soon dissipated. The condition of the course was excellent with  manicured fairways, receptive and slick greens.

After 6 holes, the scores across the 2 groups were very close. However, after 9 holes Steve Burton on 22 pts and Ian Townsend and Tony Robinson on 17 pts started to pull away from the rest. A late run of consistent golf by Ben Manship and Mick Cavani made the 3rd, 4th and 5th place a very close finish. As the competition continued, Steve Burton moved even further ahead whilst the others were grouped closer.  

From the 14th Steve was out on his own and setting scores for the others to try and emulate. Highlight of the day was Jack Griffins who drove a 300 yard drive onto the par 4 15th.  Although not scoring on the 18th, Steve was far enough in front to win.

The overall winner was Steve Burton with 41 pts. 2nd Ian Townsend 34 Pts. 3rd Jack Griffin 31 pts. Ben Manship, Mick Cavani and Tony Robinson all secured 26 pts.

The final 6 on their way to Woodhall Spa are….

The Road to Woodhall Spa competition came to fruition after 22 events on Sunday 6th October with a 30 man playoff. The golfers all set off with their caddies in tow, who wore white tabards with their golfer’s name. With the forecasted rain giving Melton a miss, the players still had windy conditions and soft greens to contend with on the day.

The outcome would provide the additional players to join the runaway league leader Tony Robinson to play in a final playoff at Woodhall Spa Golf Club on Saturday 19th October. The winners on the day joining Tony and returning some very good scores were Jack Griffin 68, Steve Burton 68, Mick Cavani 71, Ian Townsend 71 and Ben Manship 72.

So – all over for another year.  Did you make it?

Midweek Stableford

Well done to JP O’Reilly who won on count back and came in well under handicap.  Conditions must have been favourable as 12 players came in under handicap.  The next two competitions are the President’s Putter which are worth 400 points individually and 600 for the overall winner….good luck.

Here are the full results:

Goodacre Rosebowl

A superb round by Chris Radford scoring 42 Stableford points set him up for the top score.  However, it all depended on the performance of the Professional he was paired with from the Open in Portrush.  Luckily for Chris, Matt Wallace came in with 72 which meant Chris had a total of 30 and secured the first place.  Here are the rest of the results…

Medal and Abbots Trophy
