Weather Forces a Draw at Pairs Finals

Wentworth An awesome course and a great deal of weather were the order of the day at Wentworth for this year's final of the Midland Section Greensomes Knockout Pairs competition, an event run by BIGGA and sponsored by Scotts.

Defending finalists of the last three years Ed Stant, of Penn Golf Club and Paul Woodham, of Gay Hill Golf Club, were pushed hard by the two young challengers Adam Moss and James Moverley, both from Blackwell Golf Club. However, the weather got the better of the group, with drizzle slowly turning to torrential rain, thunder and lightening. By the 12th tee everyone was soaked, so grudgingly the players declared the contest a draw and retired to the clubhouse to dry off. At that point, of course, the sun came out!

Mark Rayner, of Scotts, said. "Even though the weather wasn't great, we had a good day and the course looked superb as ever. Many thanks to Chris Kennedy at Wentworth for allowing us to play on his fantastic course."
