Senior’s Section Championship Round 2 - Gainsborough - 7th October 2020

 

Senior’s Section Championship Round 2

Gainsborough  - 7th October 2020

An extremely successful inaugural SbN Senior’s Championship was completed today with 18 holes over the Gainsborough course played on a particularly windy day but, fortunately, one of the few recent dry days.

After Round 1 the Seniors Championship was close to a foregone conclusion with Richard Cross well ahead of his nearest challenger. The Handicap Championship was, however, a very open competition.

Another very good round by Richard secured the Seniors Championship - well done Richard, a great performance over the two rounds.

Two very solid rounds by a Peter Hele saw him come from some way back in the pack to edge out Graham Vandervord on countback to take the Handicap Championship - some excellent golf played by both over the two courses.

Another highlight of the day was yet another a Hole In One, this time by Barry Hitchcock on the 9th Gainsborough - well done Barry - see separate report for further details.
