I have some great news, Peter Whalley has just won the 2011 Minehead & West Somerset GC Club Championship. Two fine rounds of 74, 72 to finish with a +2 total was enough to give Pete a 3 shot winning margin. It is great effort for Pete to produce his best golf of the season at the biggest event , Pete started the event on a 6 handicap so to shoot 10 under his handicap in 2 rounds shows how well he played, and also to beat some very good golfers at Minehead.
The picture emailed across by Pete shows his great sense of humour which we are so pleased to have in the Scratch Team and no doubt a future Scratch Captain in the years to come! Pete commented that he used his experience of pressure at the Hewitt to compose himself down the stretch at Minehead 🙂
A great time to achieve this what with more good players becoming available for the Brent Knoll Bowl and Hewitt teams this cements Pete’s place in the team as we don’t have any other club champions past or present (well not until James Holl starts playing!)
