The 2013 Club Championship

By Doc

Erlestoke Sands, Friday 18 October

We have a winner – Graham Cook and Doc Watson just shaded it on countback from Pete Keen and Barty. It was drama right to the last, Graham and Doc had a steady round, carding 20 points out and 20 points coming back. Pete and Barty were quick out of the traps amassing a fabulous 26 points on the front nine but the back nine proved a little trickier. They struggled but still managed to reach 37 points after 15, then disaster struck, blobs on both 16 and 17. Despite it all, a towering approach left Pete with a putt on 18 for a birdie and victory, but it just slipped by on the high side, leaving the scores tied. Gripping stuff – Allen Brown and Clive Snashall came in third, edging out Kim and Anne.
