Hugh Manson played a three day AC handicap tournament at the East Dorset club (ie Poole) last week. Seven entered with handicaps ranging from 0 to 18. In recent years they have had many more entrants.
He won all my six games and hence the tournament. He (modestly) put this down to the fabulous grass which was flat, level and consistent. The manager was a CA Handicapper and said that he was duty bound to correct his obviously wrong handicap from 9 to 6.
"I won't be winning anything for a bit." Hugh
