The Masters Contest over on Gray’s Golfing Society could not be closer heading into the final day.
George Griffiths and Mark Heading lead the pack at 51-under but there are an incredible 78 players within 11 of the lead.
“Well happy with that,” said Griffiths.
There are a number of familiar names in the hunt. Scott Martin – currently two shots back in a tie for fourth – isn’t used to the pressure of being in contention.
“I’m getting a nosebleed here, I’ve never been so high,” he said as Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy lead his team closer to the amazing first prize.
Ewan Campbell, replying to Martin exclaimed: “I must have a dose o the runs then if a nosebleed is what you get at the top.”
Three players already have a prize locked up. Andy Jono, Paul Murphy and Duncan Briggs have all won daily prizes by ending each round with the best score of the record setting field.
Some people have had to take the small victories like moving into mid-table.
Trem Darnell, excited to be out of the 500s proclaimed: “I’ve gone from 523rd to 366th boom.”
Not so thrilled with his position, Kevin Caldwell said “I got bored scrolling down.”
It is all to play for today. Time will tell if Griffiths and Heading can hold on for the win or if they will do a Ryan Bamborough and throw it away on the back nine on Sunday.
Good luck everyone.
