After ten weeks of serious coaching the 6 U3A golfers were deemed fit enough to undergo the rigours of a Championship.
Proposed to become a yearly Championship
Played on Monday the 10th of July at Todmorden Golf Club, Steve, Howard and John were the first three ball to tee off. Followed by Ernie, Derek and Laurence. Mike was the course coach and referee for the day,
All bets were on Steve with Howard to come 2nd. No one thought Laurence would have a lightbulb moment on the 6th hole, too late to improve his score on that hole, but the results on the 7th and 8th were a delight to watch. Standing back on the 7th green for 2 he rolled his first put up to the hole for an easy 4. This was followed by 4 steady 7 irons down the 8th and on to the green. Again 2 puts and he was smiling…….
U3A Golf Championship Monday the 11th of July 2017….. So six players will be either three two balls or two three balls, to be decided on the day by consensus…………..So that it won’t take all day we will play it as a Stableford Competition over nine holes. Steve is now a regular player so we will alter his handicap, see below!
Handicaps, John, Derek, Lawrence, Howard and Ernie, 28, Steve, 24, the penalty of being a regular golfer! I recommend half an hour practice, nets, chipping and putting, so arrive for practice at 10:00, first tee time 10:30, second 10:40, third 10:50 playing off the Yellow Tees. Todmorden Golf Club are allowing us to use their practice facilities free of charge.
