Mike Strong (66-76) sent in the following update for the OP Golf Society:
Pocklington were better represented this year in the Birkdale Bucket at Woodhall Spa on 21/22 March 2015 after an embarrassing “wooden spoon” last year. In very windy conditions there were no outstanding scores with Mike Strong 31, Steve St Quinton (64-74) 31, Dave Morgan (68-75) 31 and Tim Russell (68-78) 29 producing the team score of 122 points which resulted in a good third place beating Uppingham on 129. The school was also represented by Larry Lawson (70-77), Mark Addison (75-82) and, really encouragingly for the future, Robbie Addison (01-08), who was an excellent debutant.
The Sunday morning foursomes for the Hudson Tankards produced a much better result, the Saturday night auction raised £3840 which has prize money down to 5t – Pocklington may not be the richest of Public Schools but we managed to take home most of the prize money with Steve St Quinton £96 in 5th, Dave Morgan £144 in 4th, Tim Russell £216 in 2nd and Mike Strong £336 in 1st.
