Centenary The Trophy

The Thompson Centenary Trophy

“Golf has been played on the wind-swept 1000ft high hills of Todmorden ever since 1894. Valleys carved in the Pennine Range 600ft below wind their way almost aimlessly towards Halifax, Burnley and Rochdale, with Stoodley Pike, the conspicuous peace monument (1300ft), Dobroyd Castle (800ft), the stately seat of the Fielden family, and the rock formation known as Whirlaw (12ooft), standing sentinel in the distance…Some claim that golf originated in Scotland…it was not until after the middle of the 19th Century that golf began to make headway in England, and before the end of the century the game had claimed pioneers in Todmorden, among them Scotsmen.”

Adam Gibson

2020 Winner

Adam Gibson is the winner of the Thompson Centenary Trophy. Adam smashed his way to victory with a huge 41pts and a handicap cut to match. Earlier in the day a usual pattern began to emerge; golfers walking off the course thinking their scores were not going to quite make it. But to the surprise of Mick Barnes, Andy Wade and Joe Tomlinson they found their 37 points sitting top of the tree with Mick in the driving seat with a 19pt back nine. Adam, out last, had the best of the conditions but weather was never going to get in the way. On a good run of form together with some luck thrown in, Adam found himself +5 gross after 13 and 21pts at the turn. Keeping that form going saw him over the line with 4pts to spare. Congratulations to Adam.
