Following the cancellation of the March Medal, the season at Spalding got under way with the Buckingham Cup – a four-ball betterball played off 90 per cent handicap.

Calm conditions led to some very good scoring with two of the club’s juniors, Thomas Langford and Kavan Williamson, coming out on top with a superb 46 Stableford points.

It was a real joint effort – Williamson weighing in with two birdies and two pars, Langford with four pars.

Williamson (14) has been playing golf for five years while Spalding Grammar School student Langford (13) has been playing for four years, regularly attending Saturday morning coaching.

One point behind were Simon Rothwell and Mark Crozier, who pipped Steve Hodgson and Simon Eagle on countback, with Si Gray and Ted Portass fourth on 42 points, beating Mark Mitchell and Raich Growdidge on countback.
