LSSC Open Golf Championship 2018
‘PEARCEY’ POUCHES PRIZE
The 2018 LSSC Open saw Paul ‘Pearcey’ Pearce decimate the other 11 golfers in the field on a hot and sultry day in the West Country.
An excellent turn out of members and friends lined up on the first tee of the Orchardleigh Golf Club on the outskirts of Frome on the Friday preceding the annual LSSC cricket weekend pilgrimage to Somerset.
All smiles before the first tee!
On a parched course Paul not only played to his handicap but recorded a brilliant 40 points, his putter glowing red hot at times as he sank put after put on the lovely but unyielding Orchardleigh course.
His great efforts meant that the next player, the mysterious Chris, friend of Paul Calais, who no one knows his surname, scored a great 32 points – 8 behind the winner. John Quinn scored the same number of points as Chris X, but lost on count back.
To complete a family affair of mid-table obscurity, John’s wife, Sheena, came fourth and her sister, Christine, came fifth!
Pearcey‘ s achievements were all the more admirable as he was docked a point from his 20 handicap for previously winning the title in the mists of time.
The food and organisation of the course was first class, and it was agreed that a return visit next year is certainly in order.
