On a cool, but fresh morning, which was followed by some rain in the afternoon, 93 players embarked on the Winter Seniors Pairs Open.The course was in great shape, but the rain would have softened it up, somewhat, so the morning starters had the advantage. The winners were as follows.
First place - Trevor Atkinson & Peter Shepherd from Bransford GC with 46 points
Second place - Frank Neal & Clive Patrick from Lingdale GC with 42 points (back 9, 24pts)
Third place - Graham Hoskin & Brian Warren from Olton GC with 42 (back 6, 15)
Fourth place - Bob Gay (Olton GC) & Geoff Davies (Stinchcombe GC) also on 42 points
Fifth place - Chris Oatley (Robin Hood GC) & John Hayes (Cotswold Hills) with 41 points (also on the back 9)
Nearest the Pin (5th) - Terry Tucker of Olton GC
Nearest the Pin (13th) - Terry Wood (not of Olton GC)
President Dennis Pick thanked all those who played, and also the helpers for the work they had done.
