Richard Brooks wins the Montevideo Cup

[<<] [>>] by Jon Diamond at Tunbridge Wells
23rd May (GC)

Another lovely day welcomed eight players from three clubs in the Montevideo Cup (GC level play) at Royal Tunbridge Wells last Saturday (21st May), being held again after a three year interval. This is somewhat down on the 12 we've had in previous years, but seems in line with what's happening elsewhere.

Handicaps ranged from -2 to 10 and everybody enjoyed the day, especially those new to tournament play, with the lawns playing excellently, although a little slower than at some other clubs (as usual).

Richard Brooks from Sussex County ran out the winner with an unblemished record, not even being forced to hoop 13 in any game. This constitutes his third win in this tournament - it doesn't mean he keeps the trophy if we can find it!

Special mention to two players from Tunbridge Wells: Dan Crocombe winning three games in a strong field and also to Denis Cruse whose handicap was reduced from 10 to 8.
