2020 saw FFGS’s first round of the year return to more familiar surroundings. Formby Ladies at this time of the year is undoubtedly one of the best courses we’re likely to play. Fortunately, the weather was kind, a slight breeze with showers was forecast but it didn’t really come through until the latter holes. The fear was that not all groups would get around due to the lateish start and number of attendees, but speed of play seemed good and all managed to finish.
The slightly shorter course was always likely to result in some good scores, 15 players scored 36 or more with only 4 players scoring less than 30.
The two highest scores both came from the same group. After hitting his second shot of the day into a bush and narrowly missing his co-leaders’ trolley, Josh Hadden came in with a great score of 43! An unbelievable round given his lower handicap, single figures soon Josh! But a back 9 of 25 meant we were tied in the clubhouse with a countback needed to separate the two of us. Fortunately for me, the Hadden Countback Curse struck again to give me my first win and first handicap cut in the society.
After originally coming in with 18, the wooden spoon was reluctantly accepted with a score of 21 after a re-count by Lee.
