Stoke Rochford Golf Club: Sibling rivalry dominates Winter Warmers series

Have your say

Stoke Rochford Golf Club seniors played a Texas Scramble in the latest round of the winter warmers last week.

Players had to contend with squally winter showers, at times torrential rain, sleet and icy cold gales, but there were sunny intervals and the scores were good.

The winners with 66 (nett 60) were Charles Donnison, Ron Kent and Colin Howett. Overall leader Brian White was second with Barry Coop and Tim Haward thanks to a score of 69 (nett 62) which pushed Duncan Bennett, David Hamilton and Don Werner into third on countback with 71 (nett 62).

With seven rounds remaining, Brian strengthened his series lead with 38 points, seven points clear of his brother Phil.

Alan Dolby is in third position with 30 points, and to date a total of 75 players have appeared in at least one round.
