Final Round of Mark Edwards Thursday Championship. 13/10/2016
Finally, the weather cleared and allowed the running of the final round of the Mark Edwards Thursday Championship. A final field of 53 players were chasing equal score leaders, Craig Hams and Paul Luck both on a two round total of 71 points with Craig sitting on the best second round of 37, making him the outright leader.
Another 42 players had an opportunity to snatch victory having a single round of 33 stableford points or better.
Outright leader Craig Hams rested on his laurels today (someone has to work) and could not play. Paul Luck tried to better his first two round scores but came in a little short. Best round of the day was 37 points by Steve Fisher but alas this was only backed up by a 27. Then out of the blue, the last card processed, came a 33 by John McLennan
33 seemed an average score for the day, in fact it got John a down the line ball in the daily competition, but when you add it to his exceptional first round score of 39 points, it made a best two round score of 72, and John took out the title of Thursday Champion for 2016 by one stroke from Craig Hams and Paul Luck.
Well done to John, and the rest of the field, after a couple of cancelled starts due to rain.
