THE THORNTON TROPHY COMPETITION 2019

"A TOUGH DAY AT THE OFFICE !!"

Thankfully the forecast proved wrong and we escaped with only one clap of thunder and only a little rain. However, the sky was for the most part overcast, the air heavy and humid and playing conditions on a tough track very demanding. And whilst the scores might reflect the conditions everyone had nothing but praise for the course if not thier golf.

Obviously I would like to extend our sincerethanks to Huddersfield Golf Club for hosting the event and allowing us the courtesy of the course for the day. Special thanks to Chris Duffy for his help in setting up the event and throughout the day; to Ben Turner and his greens staff for presenting the course in such immaculate condition; to the Professional Alex Keighley for her help; to the House Manager Matt, Chef Goerge and thier team keeping everyone fed throughout the long day; and last but certainly not least to Harriet in the halway house.

Secondly, on behalf of the YRGA I would like to thank all those clubs who so generously offered reciprocal courtesies to Huddersfield Golf Club members that day. These were greatly appreciated and taken advantage of.

And thirdly, our thanks to all who took part in the competition for without you there would be no competition.

Eighty seven out of our 101 member clubs took part on the day with the remainder informing us of their non-participation, even if in some cases it was at the last minute. This is appreciated as it helps greatly with the planning and coordination. And again there was only 1 no-show on the day.

And yet again I would be extremely remiss if I failed to mention and thank those members of the Executive who assisted me throughout the day running the event. Thanks to Malcolm, your President; to Trevor Gurney for acting as starter for the entire day; to Derrick Howell for preparing and issuing the scorecards; to Bob Bishop for assiting with player registration and encouraging everyone to part with their money for the raffle; and to Peter Magee for his general assistance.

Finally, thanks to everyone for your generous support of the raffle and congratulations to all the winners.

Happy Golfing

Phil Leadbetter MVO

Honorary Secretary
