Gentlemen: Nottinghamshire Interclub Scratch League: Division One. Newark v Coxmoor.
In the first match of the season Newark beat Coxmoor GC with a 3-2 score-line. Newark had received a bye in the first series of matches and needed to obtain a win to lift themselves off the bottom of the table. This was achieved with a good performance throughout the team. Coxmoor fielded a strong team including last seasons’ Notts amateur Order of Merit winner, and a couple of first team county players. John Cooke [3&1] and Tim Cooke provided wins. Tim Cooke was three down at the turn but fought back to win 2&1. He said. ”My short came good and I chipped my way to victory”. Dave Britten ground it out to the end for a half in his game and ensured that Newark would take a point from the match. A draw was guaranteed and the position set for debutante John Thompson to improve matters further. He sank a six foot birdie putt on eighteen to win the hole, halve his game and Newark had all the points.
Winner of the Sean O’Grady trophy was Graeme MacDonald who shot the lowest gross score of 72 to record a net 67. MacDonald produced six bogies, five birdies and seven pars to claim the trophy.
