What a pleasure it was to see the European Tour flagship event at Wentworth. I always think it is a shame that there aren't more events in the UK and judging by the size of the crowds I am not alone. The winner An obviously didn't put a foot wrong in the final round but it was great to see Jimenez tying for second with his fantastic shot making skills as opposed to the massive hitting younger guys.
Bedfordshire Ladies County Championships
The Championship was held at Leighton Buzzard this year over three days. Firstly medal rounds then a knockout stage to decide the Champion. With the golf course playing well there was some excellent scoring and the match for the Championship came down to the final putt on the 18th green.
County Champion Sally Shaler (centre) with finalist Annabel Pitts (right) and semi-finalist Freya Daniels (left). Kate Wright was also a semi-finalist. Sally beat Freya 5/3 in the semi-final and Annabel 1up in the final.
They were all chosen for the Bedfordshire County team to compete at County week at the end of June.
Hole in One!
A delighted Pete Gadsden (pictured) had his first hole in one after many years of trying on Saturday.
He was on the 11th hole where he managed to hit his 9 iron inch perfect.
Men's May Midweek Medal
The Men's May Midweek Medal was decided on countback after four players tied on a score of nett 69. Colin McLeod was the winner from Voja Savic in second, Andy Ashall was third and Shaun Cavanagh was forth. Only two other players managed to beat par, they were Keith Edmunds and Geoff Nunn.
