Have your say

JORDAN Burdall has won his second trophy in recent weeks at Greetham Valley, taking the Junior Championship this week.

He won the club’s Junior Open a few weeks ago, and this time shot an impressive 15 pars, two birdies and a bogey to come home with 71, enough to take the title and the lowest gross. He recent form has also seen him cut to scratch.

Junior captain Ryan Tarrant, off four, was second with an 83, one shot better than the ever-improving Sam Ewing in third.

* JAMES Ablett, who won the 19-28 club championship in May, also completed a brilliant double, winning the Rabbits Trophy on the Lakes course.

The trophy is open to Greetham men with a handicap between 19 and 28 competed for the Rabbits Trophy on the Lakes course, and James shot another fine round to post a score of 75 to win. Twenty-seven handicapper Justin Perry was second on countback from David Burton. They both had a score of 76 and David, playing off 20 had to be content with winning the lowest gross of the day.

* GREETHAM Seniors competed for the Seniors Stableford qualifier on the Valley course this week.

Peter Giblett took advantage of excellent conditions to win division one and the overall competition.

After parring the first, Peter dropped a shot on the second hole but got it straight back when he birdied the third. This was followed by a par on the next and a good round seemed to be in prospect when a couple of silly mistakes caused him to blob the fifth. After that however, he went on to drop only one more shot in the next nine holes which included two more birdies.

With a birdie on the par three 18th, Peter finished with 40 points, enough to win on countback.

Robert Gray was second on countback, with the next four players tied on 38 points. Keith Heppenstall took third on countback from Steve Taylor, David Wallace and Les Dickinson.

In Division two, Dick Thirlwell was the long time clubhouse leader with 39 points only to be relegated to second on countback by seniors captain Peter Macdonald-Pearce who had a better back nine. David Vale was third on countback from Trevor Davies with 38 points.
