England Golf South East Group Seniors County Qualifying
This year's event was held at Thorpness Golf Club on the 21/22 July. Eleven Counties participate with the winning County progressing to represent the SE Group at the Seniors County Finals which are to be held at Robin Hood Golf Club on the 4/6 October. The format is a team of 6 playing individual medal with 5 from 6 scores to count each day.
After day one Suffolk held 4th place on 409 with Roger Taylor, Aldeburgh, their only player to break 80. Other Counties also found the conditions difficult with several international players recording scores in the mid eighties.
Conditions were slightly better on day 2 although this was not reflected in the scoring. Suffolk never the less maintained their 4th place, an extremely satisfactory result given the quality of the opposition.
BB&O won the team event with a total of 781, 81 over par. The individual prize was taken by Alan Mew of Hampshire with superb rounds in the conditions of 76-74 whilst Ashley Brewer of BB & O achieved a hole in one at the 16th.
