It’s Miller’s time as he picks up Or­der of Merit

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

HARRY Miller’s con­sis­tently good play over the past eight months has won him the 2016 Ju­nior Or­der of Merit at Lit­tle Hay Golf.

Miller came sec­ond in the ju­nior sec­tion’s sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion over the half-term hol­i­day, scor­ing 35, and was beaten by a sin­gle point to first place by the reign­ing ju­nior cham­pion, while Adam Larkin was third on 33.

Miller also came third in a medal com­pe­ti­tion two days later with a nett score of 68, only bet­tered by Ge­orge Rocca, in sec­ond with nett 67, and win­ner Ju­nior Dong, with an as­ton­ish­ing nett 52.

Club cap­tain John Blan­chard part­nered Sue Brock­le­hurst to vic­tory in a tight fin­ish to the Kay Hol­land Rose­bowls at Chor­ley­wood Golf Club.

They did not have it all their own way, how­ever, as Mike Woodgate, ac­com­pa­nied by Mar­ian Neale and Mike Bowler, with his wife Jane, both also recorded four­some sta­ble­ford scores of 33, and the re­sult could only be de­ter­mined on count-back.

Mean­while, the ladies’ Oc­to­ber Sta­ble­ford was won by Sue Knight on 38 points, fol­lowed by Jane Bowler on 33 pts and Anne Lynch on 32.

Gill Kon­rad won the week­end qual­i­fy­ing sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion at Wex­ham Park Golf Club with 41 points, on count back from Denise Maloney, while in third, with 39, was Pamela Car­leton.
