Only a small field took to the course for the Thursday Stableford round for the Masters Trophy in fine conditions, It was Andy Varcoe who had a day out jumping out of the blocks early to win the front 9 hole competition with 19 points from Brian Thompson back for his first round after injury winning a count back with 18 points from Trevor Atkinson also on 18 points, but it was only Varcoe that could continue on the good form to win the 18 hole competition with 39 points from Atkinson on 36 points and Bob Childs in third spot with 35 points. The nearest to the pin winner on the par 3, 5th hole was the inform Terry Chant.

Today is a Stable ford round for the Masters trophy while Saturday is a stroke round for the Monthly Medal also the second qualifying round for the club championships and putting competition. Apparently Chris Agnew had a few problems in the paddock with a runaway Ute the other day, if you see him please ask him how the hammy is going. Good luck.
