THE Midweek Classic produced one of the closest finishes seen at Mapledurham Golf Club for years.
The format was two ball better ball Stableford played off three-quarters handicap and attracted 34 teams.
At the end only two points separated the top 10 positions who all had 40 or more points and countback had to be used to determine all podium places.
The winners with 42 points and 25 on the back nine were Peter Ambrose (9) and Malcolm Gregory (10). Also on 42 points but an inferior back nine placed Maggie Easton (23) and Frank Perkins (14) second.
Again a countback on 41 points was required to put Roy Bright (21) and Trevor Christian (14) third ahead of Tony Finch (15) and Richard Holroyd (11). Six other teams accrued 40 points.
