Sue bowls them over...again
There has been lots of golf played by the ladies this month, I suppose we must take advantage of the last of the glorious weather. Susan Baggaley carried on with her golfing practice and took onboard some useful advice from her husband which encouraged her to play well and win the Maughold Bowl, with a huge 41 points. Not far behind in second position with 38 points was Diana Cowley, coming in with five pars and 10 bogeys, including a par on the very long par four on hole 7. In third place with 35 points was Rosemarie Sinclair, coming in with nine bogeys.
The following competition we saw the Collard Cup which was sponsored by Shirley Brown. The weather was bright and extremely warm, but the ladies didn’t complain too much (well, except the ladies that arrived in winter wear) so it was a fun day overall. This par/bogey competition was a challenging one to say the least and it really did confuse most of us. In essence, this comp involves playing matchplay against the course and it proved difficult because the course is in such immaculate condition, so for many there was only one winner, the course. Diana Cowley took first place, winning with three points, with six pars and a birdie on 6. Second place with 0 was Christine Arneil, coming in with four pars and eight bogeys. Third place with -1 was Sandra Kermode, scoring a par on 9 and eight bogeys.
Thank you to Integrated Capabilities for sponsoring the McDowell Anti-Cancer Competition last week and to all the ladies that donated to charity, the weather didn’t disappoint, and the ladies are really enjoying taking advantage of that. In first place with an amazing 37 points and winning by three clear points was Wendy Hogan, coming in with six pars and nine bogeys. Gail Corrin was in second place with 34 points and had an astounding back nine with seven pars and two bogeys. Third place went to Jane Gaines with 34 points, just missing out on second, coming in with seven pars and 10 bogeys.
