Sunday 13th November saw the 2022 autumn meeting of the Buccaneers Golfing Society. Eight golfers competed in two teams (the ‘Allstars’ and the ‘Legends’) for the Buccacup at North Downs GC with the Allstars triumphing by 133 points to 105.
After a misty start, the sun appeared on what was a soft track. Despite that, a number of players played to or better than handicap. Winners of the individual awards were as follows:
- Nearest the pin (with an outrageous Bubba Watson power fade): Angus Berry
- Longest drive: Richard Hobbs
- Highest individual points: For a second year running (Handicap Committee? Ed.): Chris Leech with 37 points
Beside Gus’s curly whirly nearest the pin, Phil Butler took honours for most memorable moment when he thudded his approach to the 18th green into the roof of the club house causing a shower of tiles. A part of the course will forever remember Mr Butler.
