May Preview & Results

The new month got off to another cracking start, with the tenth first time winner of the season Dale Banks at Rother Valley in South Yorkshire on 3rd May.

 

High Post in Wiltshire provided a course in superb condition and the backdrop to another very close competition, with David Thompson - another first time winner - leading the field by a point (6th May).

 

Another new winner at The Manor, Leeds, with David Walls taking the honours (12th May) and being the first of our Super Six qualifiers.

 

The competition for the Trevor Sherrington Trophy at Staverton Park, Northants (13th May) which was also a Super Six qualifier, saw Tony Jones pick up his third win of the season.

 

PREVIEW

 

Friday 20th May sees a true double-header with competitions at Low Laithes in West Yorkshire and at Tall Pines in Bristol.

 

A much anticipated visit to the Oxfordshire (another Super Six qualifying event) takes place on Thursday 26th.

 

No let up as the next day (Friday 27th) will see the competition at Rudding Park, Harrogate.

 

Monday 30th provides a welcome second visit this season to Styrrup Hall, Doncaster - it certainly was a great challenge when the DGA visited back in the middle of March.

 

The last event of the month is on Tuesday 31st with another Super Six qualifier at the glorious Sand Martins in Berkshire - truly a course of two halves!

 

April Review

As we entered "Masters Week" what could be more fitting than the DGA playing on one of the home courses of the last English winner Danny Willett.

 

So while things were getting busy in Augusta, we kicked off on 4th April at the splendid Bondhay course, near Worksop, with a clubhouse full of pictures of Danny in his green jacket and his name in mutiple categories on their honours board.

 

Taking the DGA honours for the second time this season was Walter Watson, who in doing so, also picked up the Peter Colson Osborn Trophy, presented to him by Peter's widow Jacquie.

 

The end of the week (8th April) took us to the ever popular Cumberwell Park in Wiltshire, with Bobby David beating a closely packed field by a point.

 

The next event was on the 11th Apil was at the parkland course at Denton, Greater Manchester, with DGA England Captain John Riordan proving to be a runaway winner - for the third year in a row on this course: a fine hat-trick for the former professional footballer - and our seventh different winner in eight events this season.

 

Sherfield Oaks in Hampshire was the next test (13th April) on a deceptively challenging course. Iain Millar won the day, picking up his second victory of the season.

 

Then at Bradley Park, Huddersfield on 19th April we saw the tightest finish of the year so far with Brian White winning out on count-back! After ten events we have seen eight different winners.

 

Two days later on 21st April the feat was repeated with count-back again needed to decide another first-time winner - Jay Penfold edging things at Pyrford Lakes in Surrey.

 

On 26th April the competition at Dewsbury provided us with the third two-time winner this season, with John Riordan again triumphant.

 

The month's competitions drew to a close at Mill Green (28th April) with Tony Jones recording a second win this season on a course in superb condition.

 

March Review

The 2022 DGA season got underway on 3rd March with a right royal start at Hampton Court Palace in Surrey. Tony Jones was the first winner of the year.

 

Sadly our second event at Chesfield Downs in Hertfordshire, scheduled for 11th March, fell prey to the rain and was cancelled.

 

On 14th March we moved north in search of a drier climate to Styrrup Hall near Doncaster where Walter Watson emerged a clear winner.

 

To our great frustration Pedham Place in Kent also fell prey to poor conditions (17th March) and had to be postponed to later in the year.

 

A return to the north saw a great day's competition at the prestigious Manchester golf club on 21st March, with Mark White beating a very strong field.

 

Next stop was 25th March at Kilworth Springs in Leicestershire with Phil Meadows taking the honours.

 

The DGA held it’s last fixture of the month at Hurtmore in Surrey (31st March).
 
Members faced challenging weather conditions of sleet and freezing winds through-out the day. Nonetheless, the competition was red-hot with Iain Millar eventually winning out.
 
Glenn Jackson also turned in another solid performance and extended his lead at the top of the Order of Merit.

 

March proved to be a highly competitive month: five events - and five different winners!
