Champions celebrate Pete’s life


Saturday saw the annual Pete Reynolds Celebration of Life - commemorating the birthday of Pete Reynolds who tragically died in 2008.

The competition is for the major trophy winners of 2010 to compete for the prestigious title of Champion of Champions.

There is also a stableford competition for those not qualifying for the main trophy.

Pete’s family were there to watch over proceedings and to present the prizes to the eventual winner of the Champion of Champions, Brian McGovern with a net 66.

Mark Ridley took second place on count back with a net 68 just beating 15 year old Josh Broadhurst, and in fourth place was Matt Bell with a net 70.

The stableford competition was closely contested by two junior members and won by 17-year-old Chris Abbott on countback from 16 year old Anthony Izzard, both scoring 38 points. Third and fourth positions were also decided on a count back with Chris Anderson sealing the third spot over Sean Anderson, both with 36 points.

The day was well supported with 54 players taking part and raising £400 for the fund set up for Pete’s daughter Kayleigh.



There was some good scores returned in Whitefields’ Saturday Stableford.

Ian Lynch carded 40 points to finish 3rd, Simon Locock was one better with 41, but Doug Muir surprised them all when he shot a wonderful 43 points to take the honours.

Sunday’s Medal was a little different; three players returned a 71, Brian Coleman, Ergul Sahin and Ellis Roberts finished in that order, 2-3-& 4, while Stuart Edge pipped them all with a 70 to win the medal.

Whitefields are staging a Senior Pairs Open (over 55s) on Wednesday, April 27 with a price tag of £24 per pair, forms can be obtained from the secretary or by (01788) 815555 opt 2.
