Foursomes glory for Lindner and Sutherland

Liam Moakes 22nd Oct, 2019

JUNIOR member Joe Lindner and Fraser Sutherland starred to take top spot in Broadway Golf Club’s Adult Junior Foursomes Trophy.

There was a full field of players and their supporters as battle commenced for the trophy, purchased by the club in 2011 with a donation by four visiting members of Surbiton Golf Club in Surrey – a fellow 1895 Centenary Club.

The prestigious salver was there for the taking for the 16 pairs who all went out to demonstrate a combined mix of experience and youthful enthusiasm.

It was a fine morning and there were some tremendous scores returned, none better than Sutherland and Lindner who totalled 45 points.

Glyn Jones and James Sutherland scored 40 points to take a commendable second place ahead of Nick Sutton and junior partner George Leon who were third with 39.

FORTY-FOUR of Broadway’s men supported their final Division One Medal of the season.

The early start was cool for some but as the morning progressed things warmed slightly and Mark Evans brought in a fine 65 nett to seal the win, whilst also achieving a superb lowest gross on the day of 72.

Leon Ballard came in as runner-up with an impressive 70 nett ahead of Sonny Nangle who matched the score to finish third on countback.

The men now move into the next exciting phase of their golfing calendar, with a packed programme of autumn and winter competitions planned, including the popular Winter League contest which begins at the weekend.

THE LADIES contested the Alliance Stableford when, following torrential rain the day before, the morning began on a damp and dreary note but soon brightened as some welcome sunshine broke through.

In teams of three, ladies went out to enjoy the Alliance with two best scores to count on each hole. Finding the format to their liking were winning trio Angela Sollis, Kate Bellamy and Nadine Simpkin who edged to victory with an excellent 73 points.

Taking a close second place with 72 points were Elaine Hickin, Veronica Rudd and Cheryl Senior ahead of ladies’ captain Irene Hawkes, Linda Carruthers and Kathryn Chambers who were third with 70.

The ladies too are busy forming their Winter League pairings in anticipation of some favourable seasonal conditions to begin their challenge next week.
