ALLAN CARDS A WINNING FORTY POINTS AT CARDIGAN
Escaping from dismal wet winter golf in Pembrokeshire, 25 Kilgetty Golf Society members drove north in early February to enjoy a gloriously sunny day on the well
drained links/parkland course at Cardigan; sheer delight at a venue in excellent condition and good nosh and hospitality generally to boot.
Team wise, the only four ball (new boy Peter Boil in the Bag Rice, Nigel Scissors Taylor, John Magneto Richards and Mike Slippery Skidmore) scored poorly. Five three
balls all made a better fist of things. In ascending order:
- Steve Gizmo Jones and Keith Director Leverton both scored well (indeed Director carded the second best individual score of the day …. congratulations) but were
dragged down by John Pashmina Perrott (wooden spoonist yet again) and his caddy for the day, vociferous Martin FCUK Davies.
- Simon Seedy Millett and Simon The Swan Davies performed modestly, their partner Darrell Chalky Willington better, only failing to score on one hole and relishing
only one of two 2s on his card.
- Ian Greenball Gregson and Wynne Andy Capp Richards scored modestly too, their partner Rob The Builder Nixon much better despite failing to score on four
- The trio of Roger Analyst Handcock, Peter Peroni Hughes (downing the other 2) and Dave Smiler Green performed steadily with Smiler living up to his name when bagging
the prize for best score by a high handicapper.
- Best of this bunch were Barry Nippy Neale (whose contribution included striking his tee shot nearest the win on the 16th hole), Steve Dwr Rigby (who muscled the
longest drive of the day) and John Javelin James.
Well ahead of all these, the second best team of the day were Colin ASBO Davies (showing us that after his break he had not lost his steady touch as, despite his
fairly modest points score, there were no blobs on his card), John Hamster Hammond with only one point less than the third place overall man, Jack Macaroni Zeraschi …… well done Jack.
But, well ahead of the bunch, and three points ahead of the second team, were our second new boy, Mick Moby Whale having a whale of a time, Kelvin Sailor
Boughey keeping all afloat, and our big individual winner with a magnificent 40 Stableford points total, Allan Snuff Gawith.
Worthy of repetition …. a great day at Cardigan much enjoyed by all. Lets hope we get good weather again for our March meeting at Machynys.
