British Open Medal

The Open Winners

Inspired by the play at Royal Lytham and St Anne's, 21 brave souls assembled at Almouj Golf on Friday 20th July for the British Open Medal. With the temperatures at their highest this season and the format being strokeplay, the purest form of golf, it was going to be a war of attrition for the competitors as much as a round of golf.

With just under half the field understandably succumbing to the elements and not returning scores it was Rob Edwards who claimed the second placed net prize. Rob's score of net 76 was good enough to edge out Khalil Jamal on a back 9 countback. In form Yvonne Welling took the overall Net title with a fine net 73 and it was Mike Bulliman who stole the show producing a fine 76 to take home the Gross prize. Seemingly unaffected by the three figure temperatures Mike's round included a staggering 5 birdies.

The final standings are shown below.
