Perranporth men win County Maxam Cup
It's great to share club successes with the membership, especially when it's winning County competitions.
Yesterday saw 15 clubs enter the County's prestigious men's Maxam Cup at St. Austell golf club. Teams of 6 players playing foresomes over 36 holes off scratch.
Our team consisted of County Champion Conor Wilson, Sandy Kirton, Chris Llewellyn,Simon Knowles,George Law and Tom Benney representing us.
With 2 scores to count in both morning and afternoon matches, we made a great start with Conor and Sandy leading the field with a superb 66 (-3) with Chris and Simon carding a 75 (+6). This put us 2nd 6 shots behind Truro!
However the cream comes to the top, and in the afternoon Conor and Sandy led the field yet again with a 68 (-1), and with George and Tom carding a 71 (+2) it gave the club a winning score of 280 pushing Truro into 2nd 11 shots behind!!
Conor and Sandy also won the individual result with their superb am and pm results.
So well done guys the Club are proud of you.
With yet more 'big' County competitions still to come for both the men and ladies, Conor as County Champion and the men as Maxam winners, expectations are now a little higher!!!!
