The Vega Baja Premier Golf League second game of its 15th season was unusually on the second Friday of the month at the popular Font del Llop Golf course, there was a difference of opinion on various Smart phone regarding the weather, sadly it started to rain before the first Tee time, but thankfully the skies cleared for a sunny back nine..
Las Ramblas G.S. seemed to be starting where they left off last season and were top of the table coming into their game with second place La Manga North but came up just short in the new format of Better Ball Stableford, missing out by a solitary point in sharing the bonus points and went down 2½ – 1½ and forfeited top spot to La Manga North.
The usually strong La Manga Residents seem to be out of home as they struggled against EuroToffs going down by three games and are now at the bottom of the table with a solitary point from the two matches played.
Despite being in the lowest points coring game of the day Rockets showed they can be a force to be reckoned with coming close to upsetting the normally strong Club25 Serena team by the margin of one point in not just sharing the match but the bonus points as well.
Last season Paddy’s Point G S found the going a little tough and finished down the bottom end of the table, but although it’s early days they are showing some Irish metal and held a resilient Don Cayo to a draw but just as important took the three bonus points to push them selves into a well deserved second place following a resounding win last time out.
Paddy’s Point GS 2 (162 points) vs. Don Cayo GS 2 (151 points)
La Manga RGA ½ (143 points) vs. EuroToffs GS 3½ (151 points)
Rockets GS 2 (134 points) vs. Club25 Serena GS 2 (135 points)
La Manga North GS 2½ (144 points) vs. Las Ramblas GS 1½ (143 points)
Bonus points went to:-
Paddy’s Point G S, EuroToffs G S, Club25 Serena GS and La Manga North G S
Although this is a better ball format there was one individual tamed the normally challenging Font del Llop track was Paddy’s Point Golf Society player Shiela Dunne coming in with 42 points and even failed to score on just one hole. Also worthy of a mention is EuroToffs, David Gregson who come in with a very creditable 39 points off a handicap of 8.
The third round of matches is on Friday 5th December at one of the IRM Nike courses El Valle Golf Resort, with a two Tee start at 10:06. The fixtures always throw up some fascinating duels, this month it was the leaders against second place, well low and behold its happened again when La Manga North take on Paddy’s Point.
At the other end of the two bottom teams come head to head.
