Just when we thought that a new course rating, tight fairways, and deep rough had sorted out the ridiculously high scores of our weekly comps, up pop Patrick Carey (Div2) and Pierre Faure (Div3) to post 44 and 43 points respectively, and to give themselves top honours in round #1 of the Alliance CL. Ross Parkhill did ok too with 37 pts to win Div1 on count-back off Joonas Karhu. Bernard Bugeja and John D’Esposito, both with 37, took runners-up in Div2 and Div3 respectively.
We thank Alliance Malta (Real Estate) and Jay Jay Micallef for the kind and generous sponsorship of this ever-popular and well-subscribed competition. And we look forward to having Jay Jay back on the course after a slight injury. We have 124 members, so far, taking part in this season’s Alliance CL , ie 15/16 members per team. Remember, it’s best eight scores per round which count towards the teams’ total. So try and make yourselves available for as many rounds as possible. Round #2 is scheduled for 19/20th Nov.
Finally, remember to sign-up for next week’s pairs comp The Harry Vardon Trophy – choose your own partner.
Yours in golf,
