Tuesday, July 7, Green Valley – Foundation Day Trophy (Round 1)

This was our first society annual event for the PFGS, playing for the Foundation Day Trophy which was being contested over two rounds under the stableford scoring format, the winner being the player that recorded the most points over the two rounds.  The second round was due to take place at St Andrews 2000 on Tuesday 14th July.

Considering this being the low, low season we did have a good turnout from our remaining members and fielded 17 players.  Green Valley, as normal, caught out a few of our high scoring players but the weather was overcast in the main, which did help the playing conditions.

First place today went to Frank McGowan (H/cap 18) with 37 points, on a count back over Paul Hird (13), while in third was Craig Hitchens (13) on 35 points.  The final spot on the podium was taken by Paul St. Pierre (28) with 34 points.

The ‘2’s pot was shared by John Dearden, Frank McGowan & Tony Aston.

The result set up the second round nicely, with only 6 points separating the following eleven players: Frank McGowan, Paul Hird, Craig Hitchens, Bernie Van Zyl, Paul St. Pierre, George Cullen, John Dearden, Brendan Roddy, Paul Pavloff, Tony Aston & Donal McGuigan.
