Grafton’s Herron Cup to Craig Langford

Last weekend the 2020 36-hole Herron Cup was conducted and attracted good fields for both the Saturday and Sunday components of the event. With nett score of 69 and 65 Craig Langford (8) was the run-away winner of the major trophy for the weekend, The Herron Cup itself.

Craig produced gross scores of 77 and 73 and with the applications of his handicap established a strong winning margin over all his opposition in the Coca Cola/Tooheys sponsored series.

The nearest anyone could get to Craig was Trevor Townsend (12) who with his two rounds of 84 and 77 gross, resulted in a nett score of 137 which was an admirable result in such a big field.

Current Club Champion, Matt McKee (plus 1) put together rounds of 73 and 71 to record the best gross score of the series, which resulted in Matt taking out the Grafton Bowl. Runner-up to Matt in the gross scoring scheme of things was the 2009 and 2018 Club Champion, Greg Harvison (plus 1) who completed his two rounds with scores of 76 and 77 (153).  No doubt with the 2020 Club Championships to commence in early August, those two players will be the golfers to watch in that series. For a complete rundown of all the many winners from the weekend golf action, refer to the official result sheets located in the Clubhouse. For those players interested in the pro-ball rundown you needed a nett score of 74 on Saturday and nett 73 on Sunday to secure one.
