Tickers Terrific in Terrible Weather

The weather gave the golfers everything yesterday starting with freezing high winds and dust before rain made conditions even colder and more uncomfortable.

Michael “Tickers” Tickner showed that he has honed his game to cope with whatever conditions the weather throws up carding a fine score of 38 points in the trying conditions. This places Tickers in outright early favoritism for Club Championships but there is nearly 4 months before the final is played. Runner up, Neil Webster, also played well scoring 36 but you can’t say that for anyone else.

What was particularly disappointing was that 4 players wimped out pulling out half way round. They were Pat Hallion, Klaus Heymann, Trevor Maxted & David “Jack” Webster. Let’s hope we don’t get any bad weather for the finals or we may see a lot of forfeits.

The early part of the game was played in a cloud of dust. Here is the view to the clubhouse from the 1st green.

Full results:

  • 38 – Michael “Tickers” Tickner
  • 36 Neil Webster
  • 30 – Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel
  • 25 – Andy Phillips
  • 22 – Dick Cleland (Mars Bar)
  • DNF – Pat Hallion, Klaus Heymann, Trevor Maxted, David “Jack” Webster
