The “Beast from the East” caused some issues leading up to this one with heavy snow and ice forcing the closure of the course and cancellation of the original date. Through the secretary the new tee-off was delayed as long as possible to allow the weather and course to recover and the result was nothing more than a strong breeze accompanied by constant sunshine, near perfect conditions.
Numbers were relatively low with 18 members turning out, the lowest so far this season. Those who didn’t attend missed out on great scoring conditions with an average score of 33 points and only 4 points separating the top 10 indicating a closely fought battle. The winner ensured victory with a fantastic back 9 of 20 points to reach a total of 37 and beat Daniel Foode (back-to-back runner-ups!) on countback, congratulations to Frank McGlynn! Franks victory is a great example of commitment to FFGS and should provide inspiration for those who have yet to achieve that allusive victory. Commitment or 15 different drivers, putters and wedges over the last 3 years finally coming together.
As the scoring was generally high the spoon was won with 21 points, 5 clear of the rest, heck of a score to lose with.
