It was another busy week of competition golf down at the thriving Warren Golf Club with various knockouts drawing to their conclusions. It was Paul “Chopper” Fryatt, a Warren stalwart with a 100% home record this year in the South Devon League, who bested the talented greenhorn, Ian Jones, in the Captain’s Prize 3&2.
Whilst shockwaves reverberated throughout South Devon as the Chris “Hitman” Hayter was assassinated 7&6 by Mark Commins in the Pring Salver. Chris cited off course distractions as a factor, but Mark’s figures were undeniable at +2 through 12 holes.
In amazingly bad conditions considering recent weather, the Warren held a mixed Open on Saturday 6th October. A field of 29 teams braved early heavy rain and increasingly strong winds to produce some good scores. But it was the team of Mike Phillips Jnr backed by Malcolm Watchorn and Kim Stoneman who made the best of their late start time to avoid the worst of the downpour but still had to battle against 30mph in which 79 points was an excellent score.
Pictured (from l to r) are Warren Pro Jon Langmead, Mike Phillips Jnr, Kim Stoneman, Malcolm Watchorn and Warren Captain, Brian Bradford, who was presenting the prizes.
1st: Mike Phillips, Kim Stoneman & Malcom Watchorn 79 points,
2nd: Paul Eaton, Sam Williams & Simon Coleman 75 points,
3rd: Stephen Kew, James Parkhouse & Keith Brimson 72 points,
4th: Simon Carr, Nick Wilden & Peter Morris 70 points,
5th: Stephen Hooper, Paul Ticehurst & Greg Ticehurst 70 points.
In the windy conditions only 7 players came in with twos so they all walked away with 20 golf balls each.
