Merit competition heats up with the weather for Torreblanca GS

Tony Sidebottom

THE Torreblanca Golf Society’s Thursday game was played at Cabopino and was kindly sponsored by Bob Sawyer with the format being individual stableford.

The players were glad to see the return of the nice weather, with conditions sunny but not too hot. As always the course was in great condition, although it had been set up quite tough with the tees in most cases a long way back.

The winner was Richard Littlewood with 31 points playing off 18.2, cut to 17.2. Second was Sue Cobb with 30 points playing off 20.9, cut to 20.4. Third was Tim Hemming, also with 30 points, but with a slightly worse back nine, playing off 5.7 cut to 5.4.

Nearest the pin in one on hole 13 was Tony Sidebottom, with Bill Giles nearest the pin in two on hole 4.

The society’s order of merit competition is getting very interesting, with only 28 points separating the top ten places. Once again the lead has changed hands.

Sue Cobb is now in the lead with 175 points closely followed by Simon Waby and Bob Sawyer. With only five games to play, the eventual winner could still be one of eight players – it only needs any of the top eight to have a couple of wins.

The society pass on their thanks to Bob and Svitlana for sponsoring the day and the great prizes.

Society spokesperson Robyn Wheeler said: “We are looking forward to next week at Lauro, especially as the last time we played, despite the weather forecast saying there was a chance of showers, some of us played the back nine in a torrential rain storm. 

“If you want to know more about the friendliest golf society on the coast why not visit our web site or better still join us for a game every Thursday.”
