A turnout of  20 BUNGS members made it for this year’s Pairs Championship to a new venue in Radcliffe on Trent with defending Champions Kevin Armitt and John Haley defending their title from last year.

The morning 9 hole practice commenced in cloudy conditions and the defending champions led from the front with a 10.00 start.

Three teams finished with 20 points , and Phil Latham and partner Bob Stretton took the honours after a back six count back. Runners up were John Shaw and Darren Penny.

After some very nice soup and sandwiches, we all commenced again to the serious stuff!

Yet again the scores were very competitive and the top three groups scored 41 points each and count back decided the result again. There was 1 group on 40 points and two more on 39 points, so it was a very close contest.

Finishing in third place were John Shaw and Darren Penny on a count back of the last 6 holes.

In second place and again on count back of the last three holes were Mike Fox and Ian Ronson.

In first place and retaining their trophy were Kevin Armitt and John Haley.

Kevin Armitt has in fact won this competition in the last three outings and now twice with John Haley.

27 players arrived at Brocton Golf Club on a red hot day to find a golf course in fantastic condition and a wonderful layout meant a good day was ahead.

The weather stayed hot for both the morning and afternoon rounds of this year’s eclectic and scoring was pretty good.

40 points was only good enough for fourth place which was taken by Karl Hughes playing off 6 handicap. One point further ahead in third and second were Craig Vale (13) and Phil Latham (14) respectively. It was a better back nine for Phil that pipped Craig into second.

The winner on 42 was Darren Penny who only came along to BUNGS for the first time as a guest on the Dumfries tour. He enjoyed it that much be joined straight away and no doubt will enjoy it even more now after taking victory in his maiden BUNGS event, scoring 42 off his 17 handicap. Well played Darren.

35 players made ther way to Sutton Coldfield Golf Club on a bright and sunny day for the first BUNGS event in excess of 18 holes for over a year, the 2021 BUNGS Championship and BUNGS Masters.

It was great to see somany people there with people 'catching up' after such a long time apart. We were greeted with a superb golf course in fantastic condition and the greens were frighteningly fast, a real treat but a test for everyone.

The morning money was won by Wayne Tandy, Kev Armitt and Steve Gibbons with 40 points over 10 holes. The morning score also counted for the BUNGS Masters competition and leading the way after the morning ten holes were Kev Armitt (22 points), Kev Morris (20 points) and Ian Ronson (18 points).

After lunch it was back onto the course for the main competition and the weather remained great, warm and sunny with just a hint of breeze. There were four players scoring 33 points, with Wayne Tandy and Peter Meaney missing out on the top five due to countback. Fifth went to Steve Gross playing off 22 and Steve Dewey's 19 points on the back nine meant his 33 points was enough for fourth playing off 15. One point ahead, playing off 7 was Karl Hughes who scored 16 on the front nine and 18 on the back nine for his 34 point total and third place. Also on 34 points was Mark Johnson whopipped Karl into second place with his better back nine of 19 points, playing off 11. The winner, just one ahead of Karl and Mark was forthcoming tour Captain, John Shaw. Playing off 3, John scored 18 on the front nine and 17 on the back nine for 35 points and the BUNGS Championship title. Well played John.

Onto the BUNGS Masters and Kev Morris only managed 30 points in the afternoon to finish in third on 50 points, Karl Hughes scored a great 34 points in the afternoon to finish in second on 51 points and the winner, retaining his trophy, was Kev Armitt scoring 22 in the morning and 30 in the afternoon for 52 points - well done Kev.

Write-up by Graham Thorpe
After the frustration of events being cancelled or moved on into 2022, we at last congregated on a golf course for the opening event of the 2021 Season.

This was a rearranged event for the Bungs Memorial Salver staged at Lichfield Golf & Country Club and 19 members assembled to knock the rust and cob webs off our clubs and meet with old friends on a cold but dry afternoon.

For some time there were several members who returned  a creditable score of 30 points, with Kevin Morris leading with the best back nine he contemplated being cut to scratch if he won this event.

However rumours from the course surfaced with news Bobby Ho had 32 points!

Then the last two 4 balls came in with the winning scores and took the prize of nearest the pin in 2 on the 18th hole. (Howard Holliday.)

Bobby Ho finished in third place on his 32 points from a handicap of 13.

In second place sporting his new hair style was Adrian Marchant with 33 points also off a handicap of 13.

The winner who blew the rest of us away was Gary Tyler with a whopping 41 points off a handicap of 15.   Well done Gary, a good start to the season.
