"John Rodgers holds off challengers to win Player of The Year"
"Fulford Heath Golf Club, West Midlands is an 18 hole, par 70 (6263 yard), private, parkland golf course designed by James Braid in 1933.."
John Rodgers held his nerve to claim his first major title in commanding fashion in the 10th anniversary season of the Bagot Arms Golf Society at Fulford Heath Golf Club.
With playing partners Steve Willetts and Tony Roche both in contention of winning the BAGS most sought after trophy, an undeterred Rodgers carded a so-so score of 25 points to hold on to the lead he had held for the last two months to become the tenth player to lift the most prestigious piece of Bagot Arms silverware.
In his returning season John finished just one point ahead of closest challenger Steve Connors with Tony Roche a further one point behind. Tony Roche was aiming to become the first player since Joseph Parry way back in 2010 to win both the Player of the Year and the K.O Cup in the same season but an unfortunate back injury reoccured on the first tee putting an end to Tonys dreams. Simon Gardiner however showed no mercy, and after an amazing second shot from behind the trees on the very first hole which set himself up for a birdie there was no looking back. This was a powerful performance and Tony Roche was never in it.
Monty Maidment who has perhaps been the Bagots strongest player this season claimed his second victory of the year on the day but it was still a score not big enough to catch the 'Man of the Moment' Jonny Rodgers!!

After the huge success of last years golf trip to Spain, we have decided to do it all again. We now have 20 confirmed with a few more guaranteed to join us over the coming weeks.
This years trip is from the 24/06/2020 for 4 nights with 3 games of golf, including buggies at La Cala 'America', Mijas Los Lagos and the superb Santa Maria. Steve Willetts and Brendan O'Reilly will be aiming to defend their title next year.
We will also have a new European Trophy after Tommy Dodds lost the last one!!
No rant this week,.. nothing but praise for another superb Society turnout. On behalf of the Committee I would like to thank each and every one of you for the continued suppoort you have shown this Golf Society over the years. Next year we welcome more new members with even more enquiries coming in from people wishing to join our Society. Our aim is to provide a first class golfing experience both on and off the course at a very competitive price and to make our members feel a sense of pride and belonging in 'THEIR' golf society.
On a final note, "My friggin back!!!!!"
CHECK YOUR CARDS
Please take 2 minutes of your time with your playing partner to check your scorecards before signing them. This is an important part of the golf day and although your cards will be checked again in the clubhouse by a committee member, it really does speed up the process if the cards are marked clearly and correctly.
