Triple tie at El Plantio


Another enthralling team competition saw the second triple tie in two weeks in El Plantio 2’s Texas Scramble Threes. Five teams of three members commenced a ‘Shotgun Start’ on 24th July. Three of these teams finished with a gross score of Fifty shots.

The winning team (6 Birdies/2 Bogies) did so by virtue of a higher handicap of 0.1. The team finishing second (7 Birdies/3 Bogies) had an identical handicap as the team finishing third (5 Birdies/1 Bogie ) but had a better last nine holes on Count Back (25 shots against 26).

Nearest the pins – Hole 1, Alan Janes – Hole 4, Ian(I don’t like Hole 4) Henderson.

Third Place, Alan Janes, Mike Davies, David Swann – Av. H/Cap 4.5 – 45.5 shots.

Second Place, Ian Henderson, Rod Loveday, Henry Mellor – Av. H/Cap 4.5 – 45.5 shots (C/B).

First Place, John O’Brien, Bryan Watson, Lawrence Wanty – Av. H/Cap 4.6 – 45.4 shots.
