Unfortunately Karl had to retire after nine because of an
injury, which left Tong and Paul to fight it out alone,
Tong went on to shoot one more than he did Saturday, going
out in 36 home in 40 with the one birdie, giving him a
total 36 hole score of 155, Nett 141. Paul Mudd was also a
shot worse than Saturday giving a total of 159 Nett 145.

Little Hay Captains Day 2021 Saturday 8th
The weather turned out to be a lot better than that
forecast for Saturday, the forecast was for rain for much
of the day but it was a mostly dry event, with just a few
spots of rain towards the end.
Saturday was also the first time in nearly two years that
the club had played the course off the blue tee’s which
add another 307 yards to the length of the course, with
all the rain of late the course was never going to play
like the inland links its renowned for during the summer
months, no hard fast fairway’s this year, which meant
scores were never going to be as low as they have been in
Still that didn’t stop Mick Whelan going on to win this
year with an impressive score of 36 points beating young
Thomas Ashton in the club house after a card play while
Patrick Ashton was third with 35 points.
Jenny Wood won the Ladies event with Sarah Cook in second.
There was also an option to play Captains Day off the
white tee, two chose to play off them with Patrick Oram
beating Martin Evans by two points.
