The Bob Clayton Golf Tournament, Tuesday 6th August 2022

The Bob Clayton Golf Tournament was held at Rutland Water Golf Course on Tuesday 16th August. The number of participants was sadly reduced due to the wives of both Brian Marlow and Martin Waddington being indisposed. We wished both Madeleine and Barbara speedy return to better health.

 

Three teams of 3 golfers took part in a Texas Scramble in warm and slightly overcast conditions. The course was noticeably parched.

The prize for Closest to the hole was won by Barry Davis and that for longest drive by Geoff Hall.

 

After adjustment of the final gross and net scores, the winner of The Chris Wilks Trophy was the team captained by David Mitchell including David Caines and David Johnstone.

Bob Clayton Golf Tournament, Tuesday, 16th August 2022

The competition

The Chris Wilks Trophy will be awarded to the team which wins the Texas Scramble, played over the Normanton 18 hole course, the rules of which are:

All team members drive, the captain chooses the most favourable ball and second shots follow from that point and so on until holed. Team members must have at least four drives chosen in the round. In order to speed up play teams may decide to take the ball of one member before the others have played if it is thought that that shot is unlikely to be bettered.

 

Handicap

Each team records the average handicap of the three members and that is deducted from the gross score. The net score will be adjusted on the final reckoning by the adjudicator (who happens to be myself). All decisions made by the adjudicator are final and may not be disputed even if wrong!

The teams are as follows:
