Congratulations to Monica Greenwood, 1st Gross in her series and to Peter Howard for the SAC's best (net) score, 2nd in his series.
Overall Autumn Vase Winner, best Net Stableford Score: Jean-Pierre Hinderscheid (37)
Best SAC Score: John McCallum (36)
The Castrol Cup (Men’s gross) was won by Patrice Guiader with 27 points. The Ladies’ gross cup – the Financial Times Spring Cup – was won by his wife, Karine Rupe-Guiader, who also scored 27 points. The net Spring Cups were won by Véronique Guermonprez and Roland Leguené with 37 and 40 points respectively. Roland also won the longest drive for the men. Solena Person won the ladies’ longest drive. Due to a mix up at the secretariat the “Nearest the Pin” competition was a mixed event instead of the usual Men’s and Ladies’ individual event. This very first (and last) version of the event was won by Claude Jacques.
Read on for the full results.
Spring is in the air, so it's Spring Cup time again! (Sorry I don't have a picture of the main prize, the Castrol Cup!)
Read on for the start times.
Overall Autumn Vase winner (for the highest nett score of the day) was Véronique Deschênes (41), who was also the 1S Ladies' Champ. (Declan Thiriet's 43 could have won him this, had he been present!)
Véronique Gardes-Sol (39) was the 2s Ladies prizewinner.
For the Men, the nett winners were Roland Leguene (37) for the 1S Men, Elric Person (37) for the 2S Men, and Declan Thiriet (43) for the 3S Men.
Gorka Masson (30) won the Juniors' competition.
For the Gross, Dimitri Ansart again won the Men's Gross by a country mile with a neat par (36 points); Véronique Deschênes with 30 was also the leading Lady, but since in the Autumn Vase the Nett beats the Gross, the prize went Karine Rupe-Guiader with 28.
James Moore missed a hole in one at the 9th by 80cm, so won the Nearest the Pin prize instead of buying everyone drinks! Ten times further away at 8m was Véronique Deschênes.
Sue Hall's usual monster driving served her in good stead as she (yet again won the longest drive on the 6th. The Men's long driver missed out by being absent, and shall remain forever anonymous.
NB at the time of going to press the 2nd Series Ladies and the Juniors are entered twice
