LSSC Report – 2018 LSSC Masters Golf Tournament
A field of 11 players took to the green fairways of the Dibden Golf Centre on the outskirts of Southampton the day after the Saints made Premiership survival a certainty against Bournemouth.
Boasting a field of three women for the first time, including Irene Earls, the wife of the day’s guest of honour and former Saints player, Mick Earls, the golfers enjoyed excellent weather, great company and variable golf!
For only the second time in the competition’s 20 year history Sheena Quinn successfully defended her trophy – the previous time being in 2010 & 11 by Peter ‘Rat’ Rattue. Sheena slayed the field by an amazing nine point margin, despite being cut two strokes as the trophy holder. Another two points to be nocked off next year, Sheena!
Mick and Sheena’s sister, Christine Farmery, tied for second place with a very creditable 29 points. Sheena also won the nearest the pin, whilst Jerry, visiting from Salisbury, won the longest drive with terrific 209 yards shot down the fairway.
For the second year running the Dibden club house served up an excellent meal after the game and it was agreed that everyone had a great day!
