Fraser and Byrne take the honours


Paul Fraser followed up last year’s success in the team event to win the individual prize at this year’s Hilton-Baird Golf and Shooting Day.

Representing Bibby Financial Services, Paul scored 40 points from a handicap of 16 to win the golfing trophy for the first time and cap off a memorable day at Dorset’s Remedy Oak Golf Club.

In testing conditions, Jeff Longhurst (Asset Based Finance Association), Nigel Davidson (Paul Davidson Taylor), Paul Cunningham (Bibby) and Neil Livingston (Optimus Search) claimed the team prize with a score of 89 points. David Hogg and Rob Keyes (KRE Corporate Recovery) won the two nearest the pin competitions.

Over in the shooting competition, Mark Byrne (Calverton Finance) won both the men’s and overall prizes for the first time after striking 26 out of 30 clays. Maxine Hennessy (Shawbrook Business Credit) claimed the inaugural ladies title with a score of 20.

We’d like to thank everyone who travelled from far and wide to make our fifth Golf and Shooting Day such an enjoyable event, and congratulate all of the winners!
