CLOSE SHAVE FOR BARBOUR

 

QUIRK WIN FOR JAMES

 

JILL'S TRIPLE

 

STEVE BY A WHISKER

 

MAC COMES IN HANDY

 

 

 Jill celebrates with a triple A sunny Saturday saw the start of Ramsey Golf Week with the course in excellent condition for the Chrystal’s Auctions 4BBB, a high scoring day’s golf with a few expert duos in the field. Tim Pressley and Simon Callow joined forces, their 43 points only earning sixth place though. With a three-way tie on 44 points a back 9 countback was the decider for third spot. Keith Ward, back in town for the weekend partnered Adam Greenwood to fill third from Fergus Murdoch/Jim McDonagh and John Rotheroe/John Shields. Daniel Arneil/John Ball were just that bit better with 45, however well behind the winners, Duncan McLeod/Ray Jopson, who ended a perfect day with a clear win on 48 points. Tuesday, and the weather was a little damp for the Ladies Town Cup. The wet proved no deterrent for Jane Gaines though who posted an excellent back nine of 39 and an 18 hole total of 75 which was matched by Shirley Price and Joy Platt. There were a few visitors in the field and the pick was Barbara Monk, no stranger to Ramsey with her experience producing a satisfying 74 just behind Christine Arneil on 73 who must have thought that a better score was on the cards but for the last three holes. It was a good morning’s golf for Joy Morris (left) as you would expect in this competition, especially as a pleasing two on the final hole meant she won the best gross prize on a 79, her nett 70 good enough for only fourth place. Ruth Murdoch (second left) was just ahead in third with her 70. Ruth’s nine on the first hole had spelled disaster. She just knuckled down though playing some steady golf with pars on the last six holes complemented by a birdie on the 17th. The evening tee-time Ladies took the top two places, both scoring 69. Jill Power (second right) and Tilly Davies (right) had both been in good form in the lead up to Golf Week and Jill fancied her chance of a third Town Cup. Her opening nine was a little shaky, by the turn though she had played some steady golf. So too had Tilly Davies, setting up for a tense closing holes. Pars on the 11th, 12th and 16th gave Jill Power the edge with Tilly fighting back also parring the 12th and the 16th, looking to have the trophy in her sights following a birdie two on the last which saw Jill needing to par to force a countback tie-breaker. With the pin on the right hand side Jill had to ensure her ball made the green however it just rolled off at the back. A cool seven iron chip from the back of the green led to a tap in par with the resulting card play-off giving her a third Town Cup, by a whisker. The full start sheet for the Mark Corrin sponsored IOM Copiers Stableford on Wednesday saw 17 players on 36 or better. Danny Foulis carded an opening nine holes of 34 shots with birdies on the second, fourth and fifth holes followed up by further birdies on the 10th and 14th producing an excellent 39 points but only good enough for sixth place. Steve Taylor brushed off his Town Cup disappointment and came fighting back with 39 points to take fifth. Jon Wagstaffe, also 39, captured fourth place on a better back nine countback. Ahead of him, on his welcome return to Ramsey, was David Gaines in third after two satisfying pars on the 17th and 18th. Brian Kelly is certainly in form at the moment with an excellent opening nine holes covered in 34 shots after birdies on the five, six and seven followed by another on the 10th for a total of 41 points, best gross of the day and second prize. The winner by two shots on 43 was Duncan McLeod (above with Captain Dave Boswell) taking his second Golf Week prize. Birdies on four and six put him in good stead to make the difference on the closing holes. He certainly did not miss the opportunity and a birdie on the 16th followed up by a two on the last did the trick for Duncan.
