Crowhurst’s cool wins

GOLF

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THERE was dou­ble cause for cel­e­bra­tion for Steve Crowhurst at Lit­tle Hay Golf Club this week.

On Sun­day, he bat­tled best the snowy and icy con­di­tions to win the Founders Day Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 42 points, com­fort­ably ahead of Karl Burn in sec­ond, with 37 points, and Brian Ridge­way in third, with 36 points.

This fol­lowed a vic­tory for him and his wife, Hee-Young, who the pre­vi­ous week­end won the sixth round of the Win­ter League with 46 points.

Martin Evans and Nigel Hop­kin­son were sec­ond with 45 points, but the Crowhursts lead the com­pe­ti­tion after round six, with Evans and Hop­kin­son in sec­ond place.

Mean­while, last Mon­day, the se­niors joined up with the ladies to play a mixed pairs green­somes, and on a very blus­tery day the win­ning pair was Elaine Meagher and John Ridgewell with 33 points.

It was a close fought bat­tle though, as they only saw off Elaine’s sis­ter, Chris Mars­den, who was part­nered by John Murphy, on count back. Vic Allen won the com­pe­ti­tion for se­niors with­out a lady part­ner, with Trevor F Sargeant sec­ond on 33 points.

Lit­tle Hay is a friendly and ac­tive club which wel­comes new mem­bers, and while the new mem­ber­ship year starts in April, any­one join­ing now will get the months up to April for free.
