AFTER only just scoring a touch over 2000 this week, Roy feels like he is under as much pressure as David Teague due to missing the Bacon Cup Classic finals for the first time.
The coach of destROY was let down by quite a few players. New recruits Shai Bolton and Matthew Kennedy scored 44 and 43 respectively but it was Zach Merrett and his 64 that put an end to Roy’s season. The Bomber has been fantastic this season and quite rightfully a captain option but in the round Roy needed a good score he posted his worst score of the year.
