The Captains League, this year proudly sponsored by Alliance real estate, remains as popular as ever. With 121 participants selected into eight teams, a strong turnout of 107 competed in round #1. For a refresh, these are the team lineups, all captained by current and former RMGC captains.
The results being announced are accurate and reliable. However, they are to be considered provisional due to a system hitch which is preventing the formal “closing” of the competition.
Sean Bradshaw, forming part of David Debono’s team, starred with a whopping 44 points, four points clear of Ilkka Heikkila (team Keith Woodward) and the rest of the field. In 3rd place with 39 points were Timothy Cleasby of team Nigel Hall, Jon Horddal Jonassson and Mika Kujapelto, both of team Ken Micallef. Timothy wins 3rd place on countback. Prize vouchers of €80, €60 and €40 for top-3 respectively.
Besides Sean’s fabulous score, we had a hole-in-one by Tomas Bergendal on the 17th. Congratulations, and 36 balls to Tomas! We also had fourteen two’s, with John Finnighan, Laurens SD, and Andrew Featherstone bagging two each. Five balls go to each Two.
I’ll update you with the confirmed results asap.
Coming weekend and the following weekend we play the first major of the season, the Handicap Challenge – two rounds, medal, double order-of-merit points. Sign up please.
Enjoy your golf,
