Sunday March 31st 2019
The day started with the weather being overcast and chilly. However, the sun did come out and was a lot warmer for the Final.
We had 14 entries from 13 clubs, which now seems to be the ‘norm’. I arranged the participants into 2 groups of 7 based on Handicaps etc.
Everyone in each of the groups (Blue or Red) played each other one game. So all players had 6 playing rounds with one bye round each (7 Rounds total). All group games were played with a 50 minute time limit.
There was an outright winner with 6 wins in each group. In the Blue group that was a Handicap 1, Tim O’Donnell (Hamptworth) & in the Red group the highest Handicapper on the day, which also just so happened to be his first tournament ever, playing off 9, Chris Wallis (Test Valley)
In order to find a winner for the ‘CofC’ Trophy, Tim O’Donnell (giving away 8 extra shots), in an untimed one game final, beat Chris 7-5.
It was a long day (9-45 to 19-15) , but played in a very good spirit with everyone enjoying themselves .
