Now over to the men…
County Championships - Cumberwell win the Mens County Team Shield!
On Sunday, 17 May, Cumberwell Park held the annual Wiltshire County Championships. This 36 hole county competition is open to any amateur in a Wilshire Golf Club with a handicap of 7 or better. In a closely contested Championship, Garry Slade (Bowood) emerged as Champion for the second time. Two sub par rounds of 69 left him only 1 shot clear of home players Ali James and Paul Matthews.
Only two shots separated the three players after the morning round with Garry on 69, Paul on 70 and Ali on 71 but as the afternoon progressed the chasers closed in. Both Ali and Paul got to 5 under par for their rounds after 13 but the closing holes proved decisive. Paul dropped three successive shots on 14,15 and 16 and Ali dropped shots on 15 and 17 leaving Garry with a two shot advantage playing the last. His second overshot the green leaving a tricky pitch back down the hill but, needing two putts from 15 feet to win, he calmly rolled the ball close for a tap in 5 and victory by the single shot margin. Home player Myles Edwards took the Nett Prize with rounds of 66-71.
Following on from the ladies success, the men were not to be outdone with Cumberwell winning the county Team Shield with a combined gross team score of 4 under par over 36 holes!!
The three man team of Ali James (-3), Paul Matthews (-3) and James Cooper (+2) who all finished in the top 5 of the Men's County Champs at the weekend will go on to represent Cumberwell at County Durham in the Champions Club Final later in the year!
