San Miguel Golf Society at Las Colinas 20th June, 2018

Gold Category winners

Las Colinas reports to be one of the best courses in the region, today it did not disappoint.  The course was in excellent condition, tee to green. A somewhat reduced field of 33 members and 2 guests turned up to play round four of the society’s Bogeys Shield. A less popular medal format comp.

Some tricky pin positions kept the scoring honest, with only two players shooting a net 70, 1 under par. Gold division produced the best scores of the day. Matt Taylor was top gun, beating Darren Hancock (on Countback) after recovering from an 8 on the first. Only three other players recorded net level par, including a 10 and a 9. Sandbagging chaps?

Captain Tony Smale’s recent handicap chop did not affect him too much, scoring a net 73. The rest of the field tapered away to a distant, wine winning, nett 97! Darren is top of the Bogeys leaderboard with a total score of 219 over three rounds.

The results, by category and in reverse order, were the following:

Bronze Category: 4th Brian Butler (75), 3rd Flaherty (74), 2nd Keith Stevenson (72), 1st Mick Roscoe (71).

Silver Category: 4th Paddy Diskin (79), Mike Kaylor (74), 2nd Brian Mulligan (72), Mike Inns (71).

Gold Category: 4th Tony Smale (73), 3rd Paul Tomlinson (71), 2nd Darren Hancock (70 C/B), 1st Matthew Taylor (70).
