The nearest the pin competitions were won by Mick Bateman,Neil Goldthorpe and Kev Wood and the longest drive was 3 on the trot for Wes Price........AGAIN!!!

14/09/10 :- Pontefract Golf Club.

 16 of us turned up at Pontefract Golf Course but it should have been 18 so after a head count we rang Neil Goldthorpe who was parked up at Mid Yorks and Wes Price who was listening to his Sat Nav sending him in the opposite direction towards Rotherham. Any way after a bit of juggling tee off personell we teed off on time with our full compliment of 18 players. It was very windy and this played havoc with some of the shots, however it didn't stop some good scoring, Mark Hawcroft won with 41 points, second was Roger Cooper with 37 points winning Brian Hunt on the back nine countback. Nearest the pins were won by Mick Bateman,Chris Sanger and Brian Hunt with the longest drive going to him again.................Wes Price....... It's tight at the top going into the last event at Woolley with over half the society able to win the yearly average.....

6/10/10 :- Woolley Grange Golf club.

  15 of us braved what looked like being a wet day,we encounted early rain,hailstone and wind and then SUNSHINE.

 We started off on the par 3 course allowing the use of just 2 clubs of each individuals choice,2 balls and a putter.This was won by Mark Hawcrofty with a very respectable 32.

Then it was Bacon Butty or chip buttie for Gav before we strayed out for the main event,18 holes.

It was possible for half the members to win the yearly handicap averages and the results were very close.The nearest the pins were won by Paul Brown and Chris Sanger with the longest drive going to Richard Bladon even with his strapped up knee!!!!

The 18 hole stableford finished with nerves a jangling.......Dave Murfin was clubhouse leader with 35 points with 3 of the last 4 balls all in with a shout. Chris Sanger drove off on the last playing safe down the middle,not long but safe, Steve Hawcroft took the advice of Wes Price and cut the corner with his drive,almost pulling his back out doing it, but it paid off leaving him 40 yards to the green,meanwhile Richard Harrison flirted with the fairway bunker.Poor old Wes's day got worse he creamed yet another drive that the wind got hold off and we believe landed in the water......at Cleethorpes... Chris hit a superb fairway wood onto the green leaving a 25 foot putt for birdie,whilst Richard managed to drop short.Steve took his sandwedge and pulled it to pin high just off the green and then putted to 5 foot. Richard by now was on the green for 3,putted to 3" and sunk for a 5. Chris hit his 25 foot putt past the hole and it went 7 foot past, everyone around the green were taking the mickey about the pressure on the remaining guys..Chris putted and in it went for par ,Steve putted and it just rolled in for par but this wasn't good enough as Chris finished on 37 points and Steve finished on 36.......

The 7 foot putt that Chris made not only won the match but also secured the Yearly averages,now that's close.

   Final yearly results averages finished Chris Sanger 37.25 , Steve Hawcroft and Wes Price finishing on 37, Steve took 2nd overall thanks to his next best finish of 35 points against Wes' 31 points.
