  • The Addington proved quite a challenge with its very fast greens and a fair number of blind shots. As always with the 27 hole competition, the important aim is to be ahead of the crowd at the end of the day not after the 18 holes at lunchtime. As has happened with others in previous years our 18 hole leader Tim Akers fell away a little after an excellent morning round of 36 points and Ian Marshall who was a little off the pace after a morning 32, came storming through with an afternoon round of 20 points to finish his day on 52. The pm points haul proved crucial as Ian won only on Countback from Mark Longhurst who had scored 34 in the morning round. Well done to Ian on his fifth day win and his 18th podium placing in all. He also moves up to an overall 4th in the Order of Merit. Then the icing on the cake for him was that as any handicap changes are based only on the morning 18, he did not have to cut his own figure whereas poor Tim’s morning 36 resulted in a shot reduction. Such is life.
  • It was great to see Steve Rout back in action so soon after his eye accident and he even managed to get a 2 when the par threes were far from easy. Well done Steve and we look forward to seeing you again in the last quarter of the year.
  • We have a new leader in the Treasurer’s and he wasn’t even playing at The Addington! Luke didn’t have the best of rounds against his normal high standards and has slipped from 1st to 3rd behind Jon (on holiday in Australia) and Gary Langford. He has however maintained his comfortable leads in the Chairman’s and Memorial Competitions so with the tour not counting towards these Majors, the rounds at Puttenham, Royal Blackheath and Hindhead will determine whether he will retain these positions in this his first year with BAGS.
  • All eyes are now on the tour to Cornwall and with Simon making a late entrance, we have 38 playing. I am hoping to issue the OOPs for the first three days later this week but in the meantime could you please let Chris know your choice of food at the ‘away dinner’ to be held on the Tuesday evening in Padstow. The restaurant has asked us to confirm selections by Monday September 3. Alan has already issued starting odds for everyone and there is even a chance to have a wager on a day winner. If the weather stays dry, it will be a fantastic few days in wonderful surroundings.
  • We have now reached the £30,000 mark for the Charity and a cheque for £25,000 will be presented to The Marsden later this month. Over the years we have now raised more than £410,000 for them, a tremendous achievement by those involved.
  • The KOs are now in the final stages and we already know that the Seniors title will be played for between 2016 winner Alan Spriggs and Andy Skilton. The same guys are also having a good run in the Pairs and have reached the Semi Finals with their respective partners, Stuart S and Mike Grieshaber. In the other half of the draw the Marshall brothers will take on Steve Hunt and Ray Clarke for a place in the Final. New member Gordon Street is already in the Singles Final and awaits the result of the David Taylor/Richard Hockham semi final match.
  • You will be aware of the switch from St George’s Hill to Worplesdon for our February 20th slot next year and it has since transpired that the one of the reasons for the delay at the SGH end was that they may well be having a dining room refurbishment in that month. We are looking at the possibility of including them in our plans for 2020 but only if their price is reasonable as we are not without other equally attractive options.
  • I shall be issuing the initial list for Puttenham later this week and those who normally play 18 holes should note that the Stick Competition will be held on that afternoon so if you do want to switch to a morning round and entry into the Stick, please let me know. Other Competitions still to come are the 100 round trophy at Royal Blackheath then the par 3 Final as well as the Past Captains’ Trophy at Hindhead so lots still to be decided.
  • Our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Ian Makepeace who was due to have an operation on August 29. It may well not be the last BAGS medical report of the season as Glenn has been suffering hip problems and Robin may have to have a shoulder procedure in October which will put him out of golf for a few months. Get well soon lads.

Enjoy this wonderful end of summer weather and may the sun shine brightly on the Cornish coast next week!
