Autumn Masters 2018 – Newbury & Crookham results

By Keith DArcy Ryan

Our final ‘Major’ The Autumn Masters was held yesterday at Newbury & Crookham Golf Course, our members were welcomed by beautiful golfing weather, but also as always appears to be the case with our visits to Newbury & Crookham a wonderful course and superb greens.

Thank you to the 14 golfers who attended and congratulations to all on another enjoyable event.

Competition for the title of Autumn Masters Champion 2018 was close with only a couple of points seperating the top players on the front 9. However a superb 21 points on his back nine following on from his 20 point front 9 meant that in the end Chris Faulkner was the clear winner with 41 points playing off 13. Congratulations Chris. In 2nd place with a very respectable 36 points was debutant Darrell Procter playing off 10, well done Darrell and qualifying for Finals Day along side Chris. In 3rd place and taking the reserve spot for Finals Day was Carl McCulloch scoring 35 points off 17, and enjoying a very competitive game on the day versus Clive Snashall! Rumours are that Clive had less in his wallet at the end in comparison to Carl!

A special shout out to Graham Cook who had a dissapointing front 9 with 10 points but a storming back 9 with 22 points – well played Graham.

And our other winners.

Nearest the pin on the 3rd was Carl McCulloch although rumour tells me he missed the birdie putt! Our Longest Drive winner with a monster hit was Darrell Procter (well done fella especially passing Clive’s effort). Nearest the pin on the 17th was won by Paul ‘Harry’ Foster with a familiar theme in surpassing Clive’s effort – congratulations to all 3 winners.

It was also great to see members in the new Dabchick golf tops and a quick reminder to those who did order one that I have them so please let me know how we can get them to you and payment of the £30 please! If you haven’t ordered one of the Dabchick White Nike Polo Tops the cost for the top is £30 let me know if you’d like a top and your size.

I’m looking at dates in the diary for the next event and thinking of either Sunday 23rd Sept or Sunday 7th October, can people especially the qualifiers let me know what dates that can make.

Current Finals Day Qualifiers:

Harry & Remoulds, Gooders & Barty, Jimmy & Capt, Chris F & Darrell.

Thanks all
