Veteran shines on Captains’ Day

At Bridgnorth Golf Club’s Captain’s Day, past captain and long-term club trustee David Deighton shot a gross score of 84 – to match his age!

Club member and photographer Mike Purnell said, “When I rang David to congratulate him on this fine achievement, I found he’d also managed it three years ago when he won the Bob Fielding Memorial Trophy with a gross 81 at the age of 81. After that achievement, David decided to marry a young lady by the name of Deanna Sandy so his golf took a back seat for a while, but as can be seen from his performance on Captains’ Day, David is back on form… and happily married as well.”

David fell slightly short of a similar feat back in 2011 when he came in with a gross 73, six under his age, and 1 under par for the course. David said, “It was just one of those days, never to be repeated!” – but he kept the score card as a record of his achievement.
