Sixteen players enjoyed a beautiful day of weather at Whitehead Park to battle it out for the Bury CC Round of this National B Level Golf tournament.
Play was in two blocks, all play all, with many keenly fought games. Out of 60 games 15 went to the Golden Hoop and 11 more went to hoop 12.

The eventual winners and runners up from the blocks couldn't be verified until after the last rounds in the 2 blocks. In Block A Trevor Farrell (Chester) was the winner with 5 wins out of 7. That left us with five players on 4 wins. Using the 'who beat who' Philip Nuttall (Bury) came out as second.
In Block B we had 3 players on 5 wins before the final round. The winner was David W. Boyd (Chester) with 6 wins. Again using 'who beat who' last year's winner Roger I'Anson (Ripon) came second.

In the semi finals Roger beat Trevor 7-6 and David beat Phil 7-5.

In the play off for 3rd and 4th places Trevor beat Phil 7-5 whilst in the final the battle between David and Roger went all the way to the Golden Hoop with David taking the honours 7-6. The game could have gone either way.

Everyone enjoyed the long day in the brilliant sunshine.

Congratulations to all and good luck in the final David.
