Percy Wood

THIS week’s competition was the Seniors Championships (strokeplay). The overall winner with the best gross score of 85 was Trevor Rutter, the best nett score winners were:

Under 65 years: Preston Scott 88-22-66. Over 65 years: John Hendry 88-15-73. Super Senior: John Thompson 86-17-69.

Preston Scott also carried off the wine prize for a two at the 14th hole.

Two days later, the club’s 12-man Seniors team played its return match at Alnwick Golf Club on a grey morning when it took quite a while for the sunshine to appear. The Alnwick team did make home advantage count, winning four and a half to one and a half, but Percy Wood took a 5-1 lead from the home tie and ended up winning by a point overall.

High praise was given to the greenkeepers for the superb condition of the course, both teams had a very enjoyable meal afterwards and will no doubt look forward to this fixture next year.

Warkworth

IF it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium went the old song so if it’s Saturday this must be raining at the Old Links.

It certainly was for the latest major, the Deuchar Cup, but the sun shone for early starter Mark Shone as he led from the front with his nett 66.

However, he only won on the back nine from the long-hitting Kev Forsyth, whose poor finish, like cheap paint, let him down. In joint third, a shot back, were Tony Garton and Mark Nicholson. Robert Balmbra 111 lurched into the best gross position with a 73 and Geoff Taylor divined two twos for himself from the five on the day.

Scores: 76-10=66 M Shone, 79-13=66 K Forsyth (back nine); 76-9=67 T Garton, 83-16=67 M Nicholson (back nine).

The Warkworth Open Pairs this Saturday still has spaces available at £15 per pair, including entry and 18 holes on the best links between the Aln and Coquet. Phone 01665711596 for a tee time asap.

Wooler

LAST weekend saw the 36-hole Presidents Trophy and it was Richard Lowrey who won with two rounds of nett 75 to win on 150 just one shot ahead of Dave Hall who scored 72+79=151.

Leaders after the first round were Stuart Lowrey and Martyn Redpath, both on nett 70 but the strong wind on Sunday put pay to their challenge.

In the ladies section, Barbara Williamson won the Nesbitt Cup on 38pts on a countback from Lila Singleton, while Janet Moor won the third Logan Rosebowl on nett 71 ahead of Sheilagh Curle on 73.
