Winnel has ‘round of his life’ to win medal
10:00am Friday 6th June 2014 in Sport
ADAM Winnel played his best round of golf ever to clinch the Division One title at the Roy Houghton Memorial Medal match at Cleobury Mortimer Golf Club (CMGC).
After a week of torrential rain, the sun shone down on the Wyre Common course.
The greens staff at the club had been working hard to get the course in such great condition and their efforts paid off as competitors posted some high scores.
Early on, Roger Evans thought he had done enough to take home the trophy with a stunning nett 63.
This was good enough to take first place in Division Two and see his handicap tumble from 17 to 15.
The day, however, belonged to Winnel, who quite simply had a day to remember.
Everything clicked into place as he played the round of his life.
Playing off a handicap of 10, he shot a one under par gross 69 to post an unbelievable nett 59 and take home his first trophy since joining CMGC 18 months ago.
“It may never happen again, it was just one of those days, my best-ever round of golf,” said Winnel.
