Winter league entering the closing stages

Categories: Golf Events,News

Sunday 20th March saw the first of the 2 compulsory rounds in TGC’s annual winter league take place.

28 players took part in warm sunny conditions, a far cry from the incessant rain most rounds have been played in.

Going into the round Vince Korobcycz held a slender 1 point advantage over Glenn Duckworth at the top of the league table and a steady 36 points saw him extend his lead by 3 points as Glenn could only manage 33 points.  Eddie Orlinski scored 35 points and remains in 3rd place 5 points off the lead.

Winner on the day was Phil Ellis with 40 points, this lifted Phil into 4th place trailing Vince by 12 points.

It would take some calamitous scoring by the top 3 for anyone to overtake them with 1 qualifying round and the final compulsory left to play but its happened before, a couple of years ago Bill Simpson came from 12 shots adrift to take the title on the final day so its all to play for.

Here is the league table
