OSGS Report on Dick Watson Trophy
20 October 2017
Stowe achieved its best result so far in coming third at the Dick Watson Trophy at Aldeburgh last weekend.
Stowe started strongly with two great stableford foursomes scores on Saturday morning to place them second of fifteen teams. In the afternoon two good scores were not quite enough to reach the final missing out on second place to Bradfield by just one point.
On Sunday Stowe played for third/fourth place against Uppingham, previous winners. Both Stowe pairs were two holes down at the turn but fought back with William Hill and Nigel Wright winning one up and Jeremy Scowsill and Ian Bendell two up against a scratch and +2 handicap pair.
Team Captain Jeremy Scowsill led from the front with 38 points playing with Nigel Wright on Saturday morning and 37.5 points playing with William Hill in the afternoon making him the highest scorer from all the teams over the weekend.
Since they first entered this competition in 2015 Stowe have come 8th, 5th and now 3rd - so the pressure is on to go one step further in 2018 and qualify for the final.
