After the first round of the Captain's Prize, the field was tightly bunched behind the leader, Andy Wells, who'd shot a 75-10=65 to lead by one shot from Garry Olsen on 66 and six players on 67, creating one of the most open competitions for several years. Andy took the prize for the best score on the first day.
It was Mike Easton who emerged from the pack on 67 to win the 2017 Captain's Prize, with two consistently good scores of 67+66=133, from a 14 handicap. Many congratulations to Mike for two great rounds.
Philip Mason, who was playing head-to-head in the same group as Mike, just missed out by one shot to take second place with two rounds of 67 for 134. As the chasing pack faded, Matt Spiller came through to take third place with 70+68=138 on count-back.
Ben Gaunt took the prize for the best score on the 2nd day, with an 83-17=66 on countback from Jan Cichocki.
Thanks to all who took part and made it such an excellent weekend.
