Kevin Bircher wins Forum’s 250th event
Forum Golf Society’s 250th event was a Double Par Medal at Aguilon, and on a day that saw plenty of good scoring it was fitting that the winner was Kevin Bircher, who proved that practice definitely pays off with a net score of 69.
To mark the 250th there were 26 prizes on offer, including 6 nearest the pins which went to Mike Duckham, Mike Inns, Malcolm Sibbons, Jim Barclay, Bob Cowan & Peter Tinsley, and two longest drive prizes, which were won by Adrian Lawrence & Kevin Staines
The event was also the fourth qualifier for the 2016/17 Campbell Lamont Golf Leagues, and the initial standings see Bob Cowan out front, 3 points clear of Dave Jordan, whilst the leaderboard at the top of Forum’s Claret Jug League is getting quite congested, with Kevin Bircher’s victory seeing him move up from seventh to second, now just 14 points behind Phil Elam, with the ever consistent Richard Price handily positioned in third place.
