ALL the talk in the Bar at Brynhill was about the mind blowing 56 net, in the Victory Trophy, posted by a relatively new member, who we’ll call Lee.

Fifty six is sixteen under par and meant the 24 handicapper had played to 8. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth at this news, indeed cries of shenanigans and banditry echoed around the Barry club, amid demands that something must be done.

It was later revealed Lee had in fact entered his net (handicap deducted on each hole) score into the computer, from his score card, the computer then deducted his handicap again, reducing his 106 total by 48 shots. I don’t know what Lee does for a living, let’s just hope he’s not an accountant.

The Victory Trophy was in fact won by Shaun Williams, with a three under 69, just enough to squeeze Stuart Burgoyne into second on a back nine countback.

Meanwhile the Queen’s Coronation Cup (for proper golfers) was lifted by Ritchie Mason whose 69net was one better than second placed Peter Incledon.

On the team front the Wonderful Wayfarers go into a double header with Radyr GC, which, while not a league decider will have a massive bearing on the league's ultimate destination.

Now the divine moustache has returned from holiday, to retake the captaincy from chaotic crackpot Terrance Hewings, the squad has a much more confident and positive buzz about as it looks forward to the task ahead.

Brynhill’s Hallet Team currently lie mid table in their league, led from the front by Billy Gratton the Brynhill Halleteers secured a fighting draw away to table topping Bargoed, wins for the Doyle/Green duo and Lloyd/Mathews pairing securing a share of the points.

With good weather forecast and the course looking magnificent, next weekend again promises to be a very busy one, with a champagne breakfast on the Saturday and two prizes up for grabs on the Sunday, McEnroe for the swingers and Major Cope for the mingers, both comps are Single Stapleford format so will provide a welcome breather from the recent brutal run of Medal Singles.

As always at Brynhill golf will be the real winner.
