Sunday saw us return to Imperial for the first time in 5 months where we were welcomed by the Club’s team and well looked after during the day. The course was in good conditions, greens running a little quicker than some of our other recent rounds and with the weather perfect for golf, several of the group took the opportunity to return some excellent scores on what can be a tricky lay out.
Thank you to Jens Roestel and Alastair Livingston who helped out in the absence of VP Ric Wymer who was having a well deserved Sunday off.
The President was certainly pleased to see the manual scoring was matched by the official results when cards were entered after the round and so will not have to deal with too many complaints at next week’s event for mis-allocated prizes!
Match play winner, our solitary Skirt on the day and First Birdie saw James Bristow take center stage in the prize-giving whilst making a small profit from the prizes. James was joined in the fines by Monster Putter awardee Grant Lutz and Most Strokes awardee Robert Sweigart who saved an illustrious list of potential fines one stroke behind. First Sandy went to Roger Finnie, Low Putts a 3-way tie between Jaco Zaymaan, Christine Lie and Ken Runyon whilst Alastair Livingston took Low Gross on a count-back from Richard Mau. Most Improved on the day went to Jari Antikainen.
Our Low Net winners were Ian Pemberton, Mark Johnson and Grant Lutz.
Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Imperial 1907 Results
