Cyril Gray 2017

The Cyril Gray Tournament is a scratch foursomes knockout competition for the last 32 schools to have entered the Halford Hewitt.  Teams consist of three pairs of players each of whom is more than 50 years of age.

The event is played at Worplesdon Golf Club in June every year.

This year OTGS team was
Willacy/Westwater
Knight/Blood
Boyce/Horne

Reserve: N Robertson

Great two days, scorching weather on the Thursday and cooler on the Friday.  First round match against Trent (Thursday) was won 2 & half to half.  Second round match against Liverpool (Friday), 2016 winners, was narrowly lost 2-1.  Two matches went down the 18th, one won and one lost.  So very close.

New acronym learnt during the competition against Trent was a NITBY.  When facing that delicate shot over a bunker onto the green and someone calls a NITBY……….Not In The Bunker Yet!!

Cheers

Richard (stand-in Captain)
