Prestigious putter claimed by Wood
A NEAR 100-year old golf club was the prize on offer as Grimsby held its annual 'Professional's Putter' competition.
A strong field took part in the prestigious event, all hoping to claim the putter which belonged to Sam Bainbridge – the first professional of the club, in 1923.
Normal Stableford competition and scoring system applied on all the holes except for the par threes, on which points were doubled.
The winner was Shaun Wood, who scored 49 points to win the competition with relative ease, with Mark Fenty in second, on a creditable 44 points.
Third, fourth and fifth place had to be decided on the count-back with three players returning 43 points.
Third place was eventually awarded to Ashley Maddocks, from Billy MacCormack in fourth and Brian Nunn fifth.
Three twos were recorded on the day by Martin Nangle, Lee Bulcock and Glen McLachlan.
