Sussex GC Open won by Andrew Cowing - by John_Low 08/09/2014 @ 09:07

A lovely autumn weekend saw Andrew Cowing triumph in the GC Open Competition for the Hamilton Trophy, beating local player Janet Hoptroff in the final 7-4, 2-7, 7-5.

The field was reduced by four withdrawals through ilness, injury or no show and left the Manager wishing he had powers of foresight!

The consolation bottle was awarded to Jonathan Isaacs, as a shortened (so players could watch the final) Swiss competition did not produce a true outcome.


Full results to follow.
