HAVING waited some six years for his first Forum Golf Society triumph, Andy Birch has clearly developed a taste for the limelight, making it two wins in a row by leading his team of John Smith, Graham Spalding and Mike Smith to victory in the society’s final event of 2014.
The team prize scramble at Aguilon saw Andy’s team score a very impressive 57.3. Phil Elam, Bob Vincent, Fran Elam and Sandra Vincent were second with a net score of 60.4, and the team of Kevin Bircher, Brian Gyer, Bob Cowan and Malcolm Sibbons came third on 61.2.
Twenty-seven players on the day managed an excellent total of 28 birdies between them, with a staggering nine achieved by the winning team.
The event was also the final qualifier for Forum’s Crystal Tee Winter League, with the trophy presented to Keith Jackson. Next up for Forum Golf Society is a team coloured ball at Marina on January 16 and a pairs betterball Stableford at Aguilon on January 30.
