COUNTY CAPTAIN WINS STROKEPLAY
County Secretary Report
66 players played in the event on Saturday May 30 at Newark Golf Club. The course was in pristine condition and the County were made to feel very welcome. Congratulations must go to the Head Green keeper and his team for presenting the course so well early in the season.
The golf and scoring were of the highest standard despite it being windy and quite cold.
Opening rounds of 68 from the County Captain Matt Hogg (Rushcliffe GC) and Lee Shepherd (Sherwood Forest GC) saw them head the field in the morning. Other notable sub par rounds of 70 were produced from Dominic Tinsley (Wollaton Park GC) and Adam Dorricott (Chilwell Manor GC).
Matt Hogg's morning lead was eradicated by one of his playing partners, Steve Brotherhood (Newark GC), creating a tight finish, but a solid last few holes from Matt and a slight falter from Steve saw Matt cross the finish line 4 shots ahead of his playing partner on 137 for the two rounds, leaving Steve in 4th place and Lee Shepherd taking 2nd spot with a final round of 72.
