Iremonger Clinches Abbott Hill Club Championship at Caversham Heath
Scott Iremonger clinched the Abbott Hill Club Championship (stableford format competition), played over two days at Caversham Heath at the weekend (Saturday and Sunday 23 and 24 June).
Iremonger (14hcp) scorched around the course on the second day in 40 points (23 points on the back nine, including a nil return!).
Together with the 30 points scored the day before his 71 points was enough to give him a one point victory over David Jubb (8hcp) with rounds of 36+34 = 70 points. Third was Archie Smith (1hcp) 31+37 = 68 points, on countback from Andy Holmes (12hcp) 35+33 = 68 points.
Niall Ward (21hcp) led after day one with a splendid 36 points, alongside David Cuthbertson and David Jubb. However, Ward faded on the Sunday and could only amass 20 points to finish tied for 27th position.
Smith’s 37 points on day 2 included 1o pars and flour birdies while Holmes had a nil return on his last hole – his second on the back nine on Sunday.
Twos were recorded by Paul Lobban (8th hole) on Saturday and by Thomas Bale and David Cuthbertson (8th hole) and Duncan Mee (17th hole) on the Sunday.
Joyce Collins (27hcp) claimed the J&P Ladies Vase on countback from Caroline Reeves (36 hcp) and Caroline Dover (26hcp), all on 32 points. Dover will be kicking herself after recording two nil returns in her last four holes.
Two Reading Football Club coaches, Michael Gilkes (first team coach) and Ryan Williams (Pro Phase Development Coach) took time out from their busy schedule to enjoy a round of Golf at Caversham Heath recently.
