For those who left early, here are some sketchy details until a fuller report is available elsewhere.......
Main: Winner - Curt Driver Runner-up - Gareth Lloyd Semi-finalists: Dave France, Dave Alder.
Plate: Winner - Dave Ingram Runner-up - Geoff Mace Semi-finalists: Simon Ellam, Nick Wren.
Dave Alder, a late entry, played superbly to make the Semi-Final by beating local man Maurice Izzard who had earlier defeated KT on a difficult top.
In the Third Round there were side-by-side table playouts on Tables 7 and 8 from Nigel Senior and Jim Greensted. Nigel finished just short of 20k but had a 21k in an earlier round which won the prize for the top break of the day. Jenny Abbott had the top ladies' break.
Grateful thanks to the Bucks organisers for the opportunity of another day spent in the beautiful setting of Princes Risborough Golf Club with superb views of the Chiltern Hills.
Many thanks indeed to the organisers of the Bucks Open for another very enjoyable day at Princes Risborough Golf Club..... as Tommo rightly says, a beautiful setting with superb views from the patio overlooking the 9th hole and the Chilterns. 8-) ;D
Congratulations to Curt on his victory on the day, who managed to overcome Gareth in the Final on tricky table 4....... ;)
Some excellent games, good weather and great company.... everything you need for a superb day out. ;D
World Champion - 2014 Oxon Open Winner - 2014 AEBBA Mixed Pairs Winner - 2014 (with Colleen Park) Highest Break - 23,930 (Brighton League @ Albion Fishersgate 18/05/2016) Bucks Plate Winner - 2009 & 2010 (The ONLY player to ever "successfully" defend a Plate Competition!)
Well overdue win for Curt Driver who has been knocking on the door since coming back a couple of years ago. Unlucky to Lloydy in what was a cracking final tension wise where momentum ebbed and flowed but Curt took the final chance.
Well done to the BBWarrior for his plate win.
So 7 different winners now this year and 14 different finalists, its going to be tough to get in the Grand Prix with 16 players already over 10 points, with 2 events (plus special ladies) left
Merv - can you please get Andrea to send me the results - my email is on my profile.
