Beccles Golf Club exit Mail on Sunday Knockout after marathon round

Saturday had a slightly reduced field at Beccles Golf Club due to some members playing at Gorleston in the second round of the Mail on Sunday Knockout Competition.

In bad conditions and heavy rain scoring was low. Luckily for Willie and Sam, who wiped the greens before play started, they enjoyed the best part of the day.

Club president George Savill came in with 35 points taking third, second was David Wells on 35 points and winning was Paul Segust.

In the afternoon five members – Edd Bowles, Niall Gill, Ben Cable Alan Ereira and Brian Lever – went to Gorleston for the Mail on Sunday Knockout and finishing all square on the 18th, eight extra holes had to be played. Unfortunately for Beccles the home advantage played a part and Beccles were knocked out.

On Sunday, a few hardy souls took part in the Medal Competition. With a few greens holding water, putting was extremely difficult.
