Glynhir pip Carmarthen Seniors in close match
CARMARTHEN Golf Club Seniors travelled to near neighbours Glynhir GC on Wednesday for a re-arranged match.
The previous match was cancelled because of rain but this time the match was played on a lovely sunny day.
Captain Rodri Davies took a strong side but a few matches were very close, with the home side just edging them and winning 5-3.
The results were Rodri Davies and Graham Williams L 4&2; Huw Rees and Elwyn Morgan L 1 down, Gary Evans and Ian Griffiths L 4&2; Tony Jones and Dai Elias L 1 down; Fred Steel & Peter Collins W 2&1; Clive Evans & Norman Edwards L 2&1; Selwyn Humphries & Hywel Morris W 4&3. Next week the team welcome Mond Valley GC from Clydach to Carmarthen.
On Thursday the seniors played for the Dave Aggett Cup a 4BB format, and on a sunny day with the course still in excellent condition following the Wales Boys’ and Girls’ Championships, scoring was always going to be good, and so it turned out, with Len Davies and Clive Thomas combining brilliantly to score 48 points.
The rest of the field were much closer, with Meirion Griffiths and Stuart Barclay second on 43 points, and Ken Gealy and Wyn Thomas beating Ian Griffiths and Rodri Davies with a better a back nine on 42 points. Twos were recorded by Peter Williams, Huw Phillips, Haydn Harries, Meirion Griffiths and Keith Lewis.
While the team play in the match next week. the remainder of the seniors play a Three Clubs and a Putter competition.
This weekend saw the playing of the DR Evans Cup (gross) and Chairman’s Bowl (nett) over 36 holes, and coming out as the club champion was young Jamie Dean with an excellent gross score of 144 which included a very competitive 69 in the morning round.
Tom Williams was second with 152 and Paul Davies third on 155.
In the Bowl, Dean was again the winner with a net 140. A special mention must go to Clive Harrison, who recorded the best nett of the day in the morning with an outstanding 66, and his combined total of 142 saw him take second. Third was Gruffydd Rees with 143.
