Donovan claims victory in inaugural shield contest

Evesham Editorial 15th May, 2017   0

IN GOOD weather on a course playing well and long, 84 Vale Golf Club seniors entered the yellow tee strokeplay competition for the recently initiated John McKeon Shield.

John was a popular and respected former seniors captain who sadly passed away only a few months ago.

A strong field played good golf which resulted in a well earned victory for Steve Donovan with the commendable nett score of 66.

The winner’s salver was kindly both donated and presented by Yvonne McKeon in the clubhouse after the final scores were announced.

Division One was topped by Ed Mountney with a nett 69, followed by Brian Brumhead with 70 and Jim Rushworth with 71.

Competition winner Donovan won Division Two followed, on countback, by Brian Sidaway and Derek Lambert, both with 73.

John Scott won Division Three on countback, followed by Adrian Duggan and Mick Hughes, all three with 72.
