The 4th July 2019 saw the return of the annual FFK Golf Day with teams competing for the coveted Bob Ray Memorial Trophy.
Generously supported by our sponsors ION Group, Barclays, CME Group, InterTrader, KRM22 and Cult Wines, the event attracted teams from banks, brokers, exchanges and vendors vying for the lead in a competition over 18 holes at the iconic Royal Blackheath Golf Club in South East London.
The weather was kind to us as around 50 golfers set off for a shotgun start at 8.30am. In addition to the Team and Individual Competitions, players were challenged to ‘Beat the Pro’ on the 8th hole (our grateful thanks to RBGC Club Pro Matt Johns for putting his reputation on the line once again), achieve the Longest Drive on the 6th and ‘Nearest the Pin’ on the 12th and 16th holes.
Prize-giving followed a delicious barbecue lunch with Trading Technologies triumphing in the Team Competition to claim the Bob Ray Memorial Trophy. KRM22 and InterTrader came second and third respectively.
Tom Gearing, from sponsoring firm Cult Wines, won the Individual Competition.
The prize for the Best Lady Player of the day was awarded to Eva Haupt from Eurex. A bottle of champagne was presented in commiseration to the last placed individual of the day, but we’ll spare his blushes and not name him!
See below for a list of all the day’s results.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, and all those who took part, the event raised much-needed funds for FFK’s charities, and a good day was had by all.
We look forward to seeing you next year!
