Davis delight at Broadway

Evesham Editorial 4th Oct, 2018 Updated: 4th Oct, 2018   0

AN EXTREMELY busy week of golf at Broadway began as the juniors supported their League Team Cup challenge and it was juniors captain Scott Davis who continued his fine form with a winning score of 35 points.

The trophy was introduced in 1990 for youngsters who were part of the club’s league team and among those who challenged were second-placed Curtis Coane with 34, ahead of third and fourth-placed Ryan Wright and Joe Golding who both earned 32 points.

The following day, Broadway’s members travelled to Stratford GC for their annual ‘Swap Day’, leaving their course available for Stratford’s teams to enjoy.

A singles men’s Stableford was organised for the morning and a mixed Texas Scramble for the afternoon. With a whole day of events planned, large numbers of golfers were hoping for fair weather and, after a damp start, the autumn sun broke through to bring some very welcome warmth with it.

Duncan Beale topped Division One in the morning having earned a tremendous 40 points away from home. Alan Parker achieved a close second with 39, ahead of Ben Beacham in third with 36.

Division Two was won by Mark Gledhill who brought in an excellent 37 points, leaving Duncan Spittle and Robert Scrivens to take second and third places with a very respectable 35 points.

The mixed teams from Broadway then arrived to participate in the afternoon Texas Scramble and were also treated to some fine conditions to begin their game.

Bringing in an impressive 68.2 nett to clinch top position were winning team Bruno Giversen and Brenda Corfield, along with team-mates Richard Broadbridge and Irene Hawkes.

Scoring a commendable 68.4 nett were second-placed John and Sonia Ward, along with Chris Parkinson and Dave Sadler, which left Stan and Jenny Buchan and partners Liz and Stuart Smith to take third with 69.3.

Forty-five ladies then competed in their Stableford contest in which ladies’ captain Maggie McDivitt earned a deserved first place in Division One with a tremendous 38 points, ahead of Sheila Lawson who took second with 35 and Elaine Hickin third with 33.

Division Two was won by Patricia Trahar who achieved an impressive 37 points, leaving Judith Noyce to take second with 32 and Brenda Corfield third with 31.

The Queen and King B Trophies were next on the agenda – club competitions available for all of Broadway’s ladies and men who have competed in B team friendlies against other regional clubs throughout the season.

The ladies’ match was played first over 16 holes on a day of blue skies and unbroken sunshine. With the warmth of the sun on their backs, all relished their game and June Griffin was victorious with a superb 33 points.

Brenda Corfield missed out marginally to second place with 31 points and Camilla Haines earned third place with 29.

Later in the week it was the turn of the men to compete for the King B Trophy. There was a repeat performance for the weather and shirt sleeves were the order of the day.

Conditions were perfect and Justin Loram was smiling after accumulating a fine 40 points to seal top spot. Jim Covill matched the winner’s score but was second on countback ahead of Steve Webb in third with 39 and Bobby Webb fourth with 38.

Also played for on the day were the Neale Wolder Tankards – donated in memory of Neale who had been a popular member of the club. Joe Williams and Warren McDivitt were each presented with the tankards for their individual performances during the B team season.
