Captain v club pro competition
A fine breezy day greeted the playing of the annual match between club captain and club professional at Rugby Golf Club.
Thirty-six golfers competed in fourball matchplay for the unusual trophy of a flag from the 2012 Masters Tournament signed by Ian Poulter.
In the lead match club captain Duncan Snook and his vice captain Mark Ridley took on club professional David Quinn and his young protege Robbie Winkle and were never down in a 3 and 2 victory.
However, the tide soon turned and the professional’s team produced a sequence of resounding victories and finally prevailed with a match score of 6-3 thus retaining the ‘Masters’ trophy.
