Montgo Golf So­ci­ety

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Local Sport -

Montgo Golf So­ci­ety's 2019 kicked off with a chilly start as we were de­layed due to frost.

It's such a hard­ship to sit in a cosy club­house drink­ing cof­fee whilst wait­ing for the fair­ways to de­frost. It didn't take long for the Span­ish sun to raise the tem­per­a­ture suf­fi­ciently for us to get the go ahead.

Shortly there­after we were strip­ping down to shirt sleeves as the tem­per­a­ture con­tin­ued to soar.

This week's spon­sor, Richard Fox, set the right tone for the com­ing year by un­der­tak­ing his own pre­sen­ta­tion. A tra­di­tion I hope to see con­tin­ued, thereby giv­ing pos­si­ble fu­ture cap­tains a lit­tle bit of prac­tice per­haps.

Our all boy podium was headed by Alan Skin­ner with a very im­pres­sive four point gap be­tween him and our next player. Alan scored a fan­tas­tic 41 points, earn­ing him­self a whop­ping 2 shot cut. So very well done to him. I'm sure like all of us hel´l be chuffed to bits with that un­til the next game when he sees how few shots hes´ get­ting.

Sec­ond place went to Keith Cot­trell with 37 points, while Peter Gar­diner took third spot with 36 points.

There were three NTP prizes avail­able, the first of which went to Georgie Turner on the third with 9.32m. Sec­ond shot on the 5th went to Brian Red­fearn with 4.07 m and Stella Fox hit 3-08m on the 16th.

Just one cov­eted Montgo ball was awarded this week and that went to Brian Red­fearn.

Next week is a sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion spon­sored by Ruth Strasser.
