Brent Knoll Bowl – 2017

And so we move onto 2017 and this year’s scratch season started as usual with the Brent Knoll Bowl.  The available players list started well with 9 but by the time we started on Saturday morning we were down to 6.  Burnham this year changed the format a bit to try and jazz proceedings up a bit so an auction, draw and dinner was held on Friday evening.  Taunton were drawn against Old Blundellians and Tim Blood bravely sacrificed £10 to back Taunton to win!

Taunton started well by beat the Old Blundellians 2-1 but then faced the talented and huge hitting Navy.  We lost 3-0.  The Navy lost in the final against the RAF.  The Old Epsomians won the Consolation Plate and Warwickshire Bears the Sunday Stableford.

As usual an excellent weekend with lots of the usual banter that accompanies OT’s golf where ever they go!

First round of the Main competition won Old Blundellians 2-1
Second round of the Main lost to Navy 3-0

Team:  R Willacy, I Westwater, G Hector, P Stickler, P Whalley, T Blood.
