County Seniors Team

Welsh Counties Seniors Team Championship

 

The Welsh Counties Team championship was held at Neath golf Club on 28th & 29th August 2019.Dyfed Seniors produced a great performance in winning the Championship by two shots from favourites Glamorgan.

The first round was played in atrocious conditions, it rained all day. The Neath course was in excellent condition with greens that were very fast and very tricky.

Dyfed were 17 shots ahead of Glamorgan after the first round with excellent scores recorded by Brian Russell,Rob Clark, Martin Jones Alan Shaw & Lyndsay Morgan,

The second round was also affected by the rain. Glamorgan fought back but the lead was too much for them to overturn. Brian Russell again scored well with Rob Clark’s, Alan Shaw’s, Martin jones & Huw Dixon’s scores counting.

Brian Russell won the individual gross title (154) and Rob Clark won the individual stableford title (67 pts), therefore Dyfed won all the major prizes.

Well done Dyfed Seniors.

Mond Valley Golf Club

Thursday 5th September 2019

Dyfed began the South Wales Seniors final league game against Glamorgan at Mond Valley needing five points out of a possible fifteen to secure the South Wales Seniors League 2019.
With five points up for grabs in the Foursomes ,Dyfed came away with two and half points with three halves and an excellent win by Martin Jones of Glynhir and Ed Wheeler of Carmarthen winning two and one on the par three 8th,  where Ed had a hole in one.Congratulations Ed.
Therefore with ten points available from the singles Dyfed needed two and a half points.
Lyndsay Morgan had a magnificent 2/1 win over ex welsh International Mike Gwyther , so we were off to a flier, but Glamorgan came back strongly winning the next four matches.
Brian Russell then steadied the ship beating the Glamorgan captain 5/4.
The tail waged, with a win by Ed Wheeler and halves from Martin Jones and Rob Clark, so Dyfed won The 2019 South Wales Seniors League.
In the dinner afterwards Huw Dixon praised his team for a magnificent effort in  winning the league and also to the members of the team that secured the Welsh Counties trophy.
