Sydney Grose

Saturday saw the playing of the Sydney Grose Trophy - this is a stableford competition and 18 ladies came to play.

Your blogger was absent but has some details and looked at the results! 

(I had a 9 hour drive home on Friday - by late afternoon at Exeter I decided to come back over Dartmoor to avoid the traffic and it was wonderful!)

To the competition there were some great scores! Sonia tells me that it was a funny old day - misty, foggy then humid and sunny!! But it certainly didn't deter the golfers - there was one Eagle (Chris J on the 12th!); five birdies ( Hilary on 9 and 11, Sonia on 10, Bev on 12 and Jan also on 12) and there were 45 pars!

The winner was Lindsay with a fantastic 41 earning a cut of 1.2 and now playing off 25! Well played Lindsay - fantastic!

In second place was Hilary with a score of 39! That's a gross 83! What a star!

In third place was Di with 35 points - this may be a story of what might have been as there were 4 blobs in there - I look forward to hearing it -  great score!
There were then 4 players all on 33 or 34 and all also had blobs so these scores must also tell a story.

One story... Sonia's perfectly good drive on the 17th simply disappeared... was it a marauding rabbit?

Well played everyone... 

Finally... the amazing Man Engine Puppet in St Just.
