Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club's Jack Pringle triumphs in President’s Day competition
CLEOBURY Mortimer Golf Club’s Jack Pringle triumphed in the President’s Day competition – and narrowly missed out on a club record.
Pringle is one of the most consistent performers at Cleobury and he shot a fourunder gross for the 27 holes to record a nett 101.
The victory was Pringle’s first Cleobury major of the year and he won by three shots from nearest rival John Swithenby.
Pringle said: “To bogey two of the last four holes leaves a little sour taste but I had to attack as I was going for a 99 gross.”
Club president Tom Straughton, who was delighted with the turn-out, said: “No one has ever broken 100 at Cleobury.
“It is a g reat testament to Jack’s attitude, he was not interested in winning the trophy but instead breaking records.”
Golfers play all 27 holes in a medal format with prizes given to the best 27-hole, 18-hole and nine-hole scores.
Mike Wood carded the best nine-hole score to pip Ian Orme on a count-back.
Rob Winnell shot a 68-nett on the Badgers Sett and Deer Park course to take home the 18-hole trophy. However, the day belonged to Pringle.
