AFTER spending the winter months traipsing around Ikea, feigning interest in flat pack furniture and Swedish meatballs, March saw the Hackerati flood back onto Barry's Brynhill Golf Club course.

The first competition of the new season is the Barry and District Cup, a four week eclectic event, where the best score on each hole, over the four rounds, is totalled.

After week three, David Cunningham and new member Paul Thomas (51) hold a commanding three shot lead over Professor Peters and Marxist Trade Union leader Steve Doyle (54) with three pairs one shot further behind.

Sunday also saw new club captain Jamie Griffiths canning an awesome hole in one on the par three 16th.

So all to play for next week and as always at Brynhill golf will be the real winner.
