Birkett Barker Trophy Winner

Saturday 25th May saw Olton Golf Club’s first major of the year, the Birkett Barker Trophy, the first part of the Presidents Salver with the second part, the Birkett Barker Shield, in late July. 

A field of 56 players took to OGC’s magnificently presented course for two rounds of 18 holes.  The weather was very kind to all with conditions perfect for such a day. First round leader on count back was Phil Haine with a great score of Net 69.  The morning conditions must have been the best as there were 16 players within 2 shots of the lead.  The afternoon was little different with many players tiring, but the best round of the day goes to Gary Parker with a great net score of 66.  However, congratulations go to new boy of 8 months, Anthony Murray, with two round score of Net 69 & 68 totalling 137, a lead of 4 shots.  His handicap has been suitably cut!

Well done Anthony.
