Dashwood Knockout 2017 the Final 27th October 2017

The Dashwood Knockout Final between Pat Wyatt and Dave Hughes was played at Donnington Valley after as series of unavoidable delays. The contestants decided to play a straight KO comp rather that the modified KO rules. After a steady start by both combatants Pat started to edge forward at the 5th getting to 3 up by the 8th, Dave momentarily pulled it back to 2up at the turn but Pat continued getting back to 3up at the 10th and 4up at the 14th. It looked all over for Dave until he started to claw back the deficit until he was 1 down going up the 18th. Dave was first to drive and scuffed it not many yards down the fairway Pat ready to step in smashed his drive but unfortunately into the trees on the right of the fairway just at the dogleg. Dave played his second shot towards the green about 100 yards short. We found Pat's drive but luck was not favouring him as his ball had nestled into a hollow and it wasn't an animal scraping and he did his best to dig it out but not far and his 3rd shot was not much better the 4th landed on the green about 6 feet form the pin. Mean while Dave wasn't having much better luck with his 3rd and 4th shots just getting to the edge of the green, miraculously Dave sunk the putt for a 5 and Pat need to can his putt for the half to take the match but luck didn't go Pat's way when his missed the putt. The boys then went down the first again with Dave triumphing over Pat. Well done Dave and commiserations to Pat

Milne Trophy - The beginning of the new season for the Milne Trophy Order of Merit; On a very pleasant late October day bestowed with excellent weather and a Donnington Valley course in great condition expectations were high for some stunning scores, however it was not to be with the winner Simon Homans mustering a very respectable score of 35 points and the rest of the field following behind. Thus Simon leaps into the lead with the usual suspects not far behind, for all scores see the Order of Merit table.
