Congratulations to Sam Morgan on his victory in the City and County of Bristol Open at Henbury on September 4th

Sam was the only player to shoot two sub 70 rounds (69, 68) and won by one shot from Andy Rudge (Bristol & Clifton) and Dave Wood (Chipping Sodbury). Sam has worked very hard at his game this season and is one of only two players to have picked up points in all six of this year’s Duchess Salver events, the other being current leader Nick Day. Louis O’Regan had a good afternoon, shooting 68 to finish 7th on 143, while young Will Mullins had a good morning shooting 70, for a total of 147 that saw him finish 11th.

The victory saw Sam move up to 4th in the Duchess Salver Table, and with Dave Butler (10th), Dave Lake (13th), Louis O’Regan (14th) and Nick Glasspool, Adam Jenkinson and Will Mullins being 19th,20th & 21st respectively, Knowle players make up one third of the top 21 players in the table. The last Duchess Salver event is being held at Chipping Sodbury on Sunday 25th September, and I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing all of our representatives the best of luck.

Knowle Gold Medal - A win for Dave Butler

Posted by Ryan Coles  |  Posted on 14th August 2011

Home player Dave Butler won his first Duchess Salver Event with two excellent rounds of 70 and 67 around the immaculately presented Knowle course. This was good enough to win the coveted Knowle Gold Medal from Henbury's Nick Day and represented a major breakthough for the Knowle Player.

Having been a model of consistency all summer with his handicap dropping to plus 1, Butler opened in the morning with level par round of 70 which left him trailing Bristol & Clifton youngster Reece Johnson by 2 shots. Sandwiched between them was former Knowle greenkeeper Paul Garland who had backed into a 69 following a double bogey 7 on the short 7th (his 16th). It was to prove an indication of what was to come for Garland as he continued in a similar vein in the afternoon, eventually carding a 9 over par 79 to crash out of contention.

Johnson continued to play well however and he battled hard to return a 72 and set the early target of 140. Scoring proved more tricky in the afternoon and many felt his score would be good enough to at least make a play-off. It was however to be Dave Butler's day and he played beautifully to return a 3 under par round of 67 and hold off a late charge from County No 1 Nick Day by two shots.

Knowle Junior Will Mullins continues to impress and easily won the net prize with rounds of 70/65 and 74/69.
