Seniors’ County Championship won by Ros Moor

Senior Championship - Report  August 6th 2014 

The Seniors’ Championship Semi-Final & Final were held at Shrewsbury G.C. on 6th August with the threat of rain early on but the clouds soon cleared & we were lucky to have sunshine all day.

The first match out in the Semi-Final was between Jean Evans & Sue Pritchard, two Shrewsbury members. After a closely fought match, Jean won 3&1.  In the second match out, Olive Brown of Shifnal just lost out to Ros Moor of Bridgnorth, 2&1.

The Final between Jean & Ros was nip & tuck all the way with a few tense moments for both players & spectators. Ros eventually secured victory on the 17th, winning 2&1 and taking home the Seniors’ Championship Shield.

Congratulations to all four players for the excellent golf on display.  All the matches were well contested but played in the true spirit of the game – a good day was had by all.

Many thanks go to Shrewsbury G.C. for the courtesy of the course and to our County President, Sally Goulds, for refereeing the matches.

The match was played on 30th July on yet another sunny day and all the Ladies seemed to have enjoyable matches.  Bridgnorth golf course was in very good condition. We were welcomed by the Lady Captain, Bridget and the Lady President of WHLVA set us on our way.
We had a fairly close contest and most of the matches went to the 17th or 18th greens.
The overall result was a win for WHLVA 5-3. Successful Shropshire pairings wereJayne Sandford and Jean Evans, Angela Hinton and Linda Mottram and Pauline Davies with Sue Field all enjoying good wins.
