GMGC Club Tournament (23/09/10) at The Green Indoor Mini Golf in Hither Green - Gottfried Ties for Sixth Spot at the GMGC Club Tournament
Richard Gottfried competed in the Green Mini Golf Club’s fifth Club Tournament at Hither Green, Lewisham, London on Thursday 23rd September 2010. In the field of nine players Richard finished in tied 6th place in the 36-hole event with scores of 47(+11) and 35(-1) for a total of 82(+10) – with Richard's GMGC Handicap at 'zero' his unhandicapped round was also marked at 82. In the un-handicapped scores Richard’s two rounds saw him ranked 7th. The GMGC Club Tournament was won by Cambridgeshire's Tony Kelly.
Richard said “I started off my first round with a shocking score of five on the seventh hole, and managed to drop a fair few shots on three other holes. I was happy to come back with a 35 in round two, but after scoring a 47 it was a damage limitation round. Congratulations to Tony Kelly for his win, he was rattling in the Aces in the two rounds. Well played also to Adam Kelly and Giuseppe Ruggiero for their great rounds, some fantastic consistency in their scoring and thoroughly deserved podium finishes. GMGC Rookie player William Donelly is also improving his game and putting in the practice."
Richard added "I've been playing a lot of tournaments recently and it does take it out of you sometimes, I'll be having a few weeks off to relax ahead of the October, November and December run of events."
Heading into the competition Richard was in 6th place of 26 players in the GMGC Rankings. Following this week's tournament he has dropped down one place to 7th of 28 ranked players.
