1. Senior Bircher Bowl & Tedd Trophy
44 players took part in todays competition. The course was in great shape and the rain kept away which was good. Congratulations to Ernie Sznapka (89-22=67) and Andy Chambers (82-12=70) in winning the Tedd Trophy and Bircher Bowl respectively. Also congrats to Steve Cadney on the lowest gross of 76 strokes. There were 3 2’s who were Steve Cadney on the 6th, Jim Shaddick 6th and Ian Taylor 17th. My thanks to my playing partners Mark Cooper and Stephen Palmer who as well as me would have had much better scores if only we could putt!
So on we go to Monday 6th July for the first round of the Seniors Club Championship. See you all then and stay safe.

Belated congratulations to Terry Carver on his win in the Newtown Cup with an excellent 41 points. Also congrats to Kaz Rudnicki (37 points) and Terry Bufton (36 points).
At the Llanymynech Seniors Pairs Open a creditable 43 points were scored by Iain Ashcroft & Tony Green. It was enough to win the money of all the other Leominster pairs but not enough to get to the main comp. prizes. A prize was won by myself of the longest drive although it was thought to be in the rough by 1 or 2 of our seniors the prize was awarded anyway.
On the 23rd July the Seniors July Medal was played with the following results;
Division 1 winner Dave Jones (79-12=67). Division 2 winner Phil Samuel (83-21=62) Division 3 winner James Forrester (101-34=67). The best gross was Tony Green with a 75. Well done to all.
At the recent committee meeting the following decisions were proposed and carried;
For the Seniors Club Championship all changes of handicaps will be made after the competition has finished.

Qualifiers for the Presidents Cup as of 27th July2020;

Stay safe and see you all at Captain Day on 30th July.
CAPTAINS DAY 30th July 2020
A total of 49 players took part on a very hot day. The course looked amazing and played very well. Many thanks to Dave Jones and Dave O’Dowd for organising the day and sorting out the vast array of prizes of which all 49 players received at least one. Many thanks also to Rob for the soup and sandwiches, very enjoyable. Dave Jones also asked if any seniors were interested in playing in a 4 person team Texas Scramble on Saturday 15th August 2020. See Andy in the pro shop for details. I’m sure you will agree it was very nice to see Malcolm Clark back on the course where he belongs. Welcome back Malc.
The results of the Captains Day were as follows; 1st Malcolm J. Davies 40points, 2nd Wayne Barton (President) 38points and 3rd Kevin Room 37points (on countback). Congratulations to all and the next comp is the David Kent Cup on 6th August.
Play well and stay safe
