GOLF: Vice Captain lifts Cyder Cup at Windwhistle Seniors
9:43pm Sunday 20th October 2013 in Sport
VICE Captain Alan Davis led his side to a four point victory over the Captain’s team in The Cyder Cup held by Windwhistle Seniors.
Davis held a 12-8 lead over Alan Chance after the foursomes and Four Ball Better Ball matches.
And after the 25 deciding singles matches were shared last Monday, Davis and his team claimed overall victory by 24½ points to 20½.
With the Captain’s team trailing by four points, they made just the start they wanted by winning the first two singles.
A spate of defeats followed and after 12 games, the Vice Captain was leading by six points.
A further rally from the Captain’s team cut the lead to four points, but when Bob Barrow managed a half in his game against Bim Morfitt in game 22, victory was assured for the Vice Captain.
The presentation was conducted in the clubhouse where Alan Chance thanked everyone who took part.
Special congratulations went to Mike Cox, Tony Stenhouse, Robin Flower and Mike Hone, all of whom secured the maximum three points for their team.
Results – Bareham beat Frost by 5 & 4; Gudge beat Marsh by 6&5; Stephens lost to Skeels by 2 holes; Willerton beat McOmish by 4&3; Hill lost to Mosser by 1 hole; Withers lost to N Hodder by 1 hole; Bonney lost to Wells by 5&4; England lost to Stenhouse by 4&2 Roy halved with Fielder; Dean beat Small by 2 holes; Beale lost to Anderson by 1 hole; Wallis halved with Drayton; Ireland lost to Hall by 7&5; Harper lost to Cox by 3&2 Bryden lost to Singleton by 7&6; Flower beat Pearce by 2 holes; Passmore halved with B Hodder; Hone beat J Chance by 2&1; White beat Markby by 8&6; Heath beat Hollingworth by 5&3; A Chance beat Davis by 5&4; Barrow halved with Morfitt; Arnold beat Morfitt by 5&4; Light lost to Robinson by 4&3; Martin halved with Dobson.
After a washout on Wednesday, 39 Seniors took advantage of the weather on Friday to enter a three man team Stableford event.
Conditions proved to be difficult in the swirling wind, and scores were very low with no team returning a par score of 74 points.
This proved to be a leveller as only four points separated the top ten teams.
The early starters fared the best with Richard Hall’s trio returning 73 points which proved to be the winning total, matched only by Alan Chance’s team who finished in second place after countback.
Results – 1 Richard Hall; Keith Harper & Gordon Bareham 73pts; 2 Alan Chance; Geoff Dean & Bob White 73pts; Mike Burt; Brian Anderson & Chris Basterfield 72pts.
