A Scramble to victory

Evesham Editorial 25th Oct, 2018 Updated: 25th Oct, 2018   0

A PACKED field supported Broadway Golf Club’s Ladies’ Texas Scramble, which was won by Linda Carruthers, Pat Righton and Sheila Lawson with 66.7 nett.

Following torrential rain the day before, the morning began on a damp and dreary note but soon brightened as some welcome sunshine broke through.

Teams took their drives and then selected the best shot for each to play through to the green. Runners-up were Frances Friend, Debbie Donoghue and Veronica Rudd with 73.9, ahead of third-placed Julia Ward, Rachel Rigg and Julia Fortescue with 74.7.

Fourth with a 75.5 nett were Barb Buggin, Irene Hawkes and Louise Folkes.

THERE was a superb weekend turnout for Broadway’s Adult Junior Foursomes Trophy. Purchased in 2011 with a donation by four visiting members of Surbitan Golf Club – a fellow 1895 Centenary club – the prestigious salver was there for the taking for the 18 pairs who went out with great enthusiasm.

There were some impressive scores returned, none more so than Callum Millard and junior member Ambrose Eaves who topped the field with a fine 46 points.

Fraser Sutherland and son Tommy brought in 44 to take second place, ahead of Broadway’s assistant junior organiser Les Seaton and partner Amelia Shaw in third with 42.

BROADWAY’S men competed in their Turkey Fourball, which had an 80-strong field. There were some formidable pairs on the team sheet and, whilst the morning began on a cold note, the autumnal day turned out to be a splendid one and provided superb conditions.

Winning the sought-after turkey vouchers were Adam Barnfield and Andrew Sutton with 49 points to take first position.

Father and son pairing Stuart and Ollie Storrer earned 48 points to seal second place, ahead of Richard Preen and Matt Sollis who claimed third with 47 points on countback from fourth-placed James Burke and Dave Sadler.
