Success for Warren Darrell at Ross-on-Wye Golf Club
4:16pm Thursday 25th October 2012 in Golf
WARREN Darrell won’t be too upset with the rain-ravaged summer after triumphing in two re-arranged annual competitions at Ross-on-Wye GC.
The six-handicapper struck his best form to win the Centenary Cup and the Eddie Hodges Fourball Better Ball Medal.
Darrell fired a gross 74, nett 68, to seal the Centenary Cup, while Tim Wyatt shot a nett 69 and narrowly failed to add to the five trophies he won over the summer.
David Price, with a nett 70 along with Jason Bolton also nett 70, also performed well in the event which attracted 105 members. Darrell joined forces with Mark Whitmore to carry off the annual Fourball Better Ball crown which was contested by 32 pairs.
Their nett 65 was too good for the chasing pack in which James Morgan and Steve Wallbank shot a nett 67 to finish second.
Lee Cartwright and Andrew Stephens, with nett 68, took third spot.
Former Ryder Cup star Brian Huggett presented the prizes to the best performers in the Club’s 2012 Twilight Eclectic competition.
He also initiated an enjoyable question and answer session about his experiences and views on the golfing world. Adrian Hope, James Price and James Berry won the three Twilight Eclectic sessions, scoring 46 points, 49 points and 49 points respectively.
James Price won the Eclectic Finals 18 holes competition in which Berry, Dale Gribble and Andy Hobbs had qualified. Steve Phillips organised the event which took place over an eight-week spell on Tuesdays during the summer.
