𝑻𝑯𝑬 𝑩𝑰𝑮 𝑺𝑪𝑶𝑹𝑬𝑺 𝑲𝑬𝑬𝑷 𝑪𝑶𝑴𝑰𝑵𝑮 – 𝑨𝑫𝑨𝑴 𝑫𝑨𝑽𝑰𝑬𝑺 43 𝑷𝑶𝑰𝑵𝑻𝑺
On a day when the weather was just right, with low humidity and a nice breeze, and on a golf course that is in great condition in every aspect, some big scores were to be expected.
What was not expected was a winning score of 43 points, at least not that high a score at Pattavia.
Big Adam Davies is a handy golfer and had one of those days when everything goes just right. Even the quick greens were to his liking. A great score for the top placing.
Peter Kelly won his first Green Jacket at Links only a week ago and came very close to repeating that win. If not for Adam’s big score, he may well have had another one. 39 points will win most times.
But it was close, as Francis Goyons, who wore the Jacket for his first time two weeks ago also had 39 points to finish third on countback.
Now, Jim Ferris is not a name seen in the winner’s list often enough, but a terrific effort today with a score of 37 points got him into the fourth spot.
Phil Davies continued the comeback with his 37 points to just lose to Jim on countback and take the fifth placing.
George Mueller thought that he had missed out, but he snuck into the final spot with 36 points to nudge out Mike Tottenham on yet another countback.

We had 26 players out today and the starter was happy to get our first group away about twenty minutes early. A good idea as the course was quite busy, with another society due to follow us.
All back to Links for a cold drink and a Massaman Curry to end another top day on a well presented, fun to play, golf course.
𝑷𝒉𝒐𝒕𝒐𝒔: Adam took off before the photo op, so we have second placegetter, 𝑷𝒆𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝑲𝒆𝒍𝒍𝒚 standing in.
