Just what the doctors ordered!

Weather conditions were again favourable for this year's Veterans Championships at Yelverton Golf Club. A total of 48 entrants took part in this medal format competition with the winners being the best scratch and handicap scores. Retired doctor Paul Harvey pipped Chris Willis in a close hard fought contest. Some big putts and great up and downs helped Paul secure the Captains Day Rose Bowl scratch trophy and the title of Vets Champion Golfer of the year!

With a brilliant net score of 64, retired surgeon John Friend secured the Vets Handicap Champion Golfer title with three shots to spare. John, fresh and rejuvenated from a three-week family break reconnected with his rhythmical swing and was living the dream. Both champions had great playing partners which all added up to the perfect prescription.

Scratch Result: 1, Paul Harvey – 80; 2, Chris Willis – 80; 3, Pete Davis – 81.

Handicap Result: 1, John Friend – 64; 2, Andy Young – 67; 3, Chelsea Davis – 67.
