THE fi­nal round of the in­au­gu­ral Eclectic Sum­mer Cup crowned the first win­ner at the week­end with Matt Zill­man fight­ing off late chal­lenges to seal it.

Club cap­tain Steve Gal­lagher said Sun­day rain was not enough to de­ter play­ers and 15 showed up to chal­lenge Zill­man for the cup.

“What a fan­tas­tic fin­ish to the Eclectic Sum­mer Cup,” Gal­lagher said.

“Matt took the lead on Satur­day but Jeremy Zahl nearly stole the show with the low­est gross score on the front nine this year.

“But the day be­longed to Matt who held on to the nar­row­est of mar­gins to take out the event with a 23 nett.”

Jeremy Zahl and Ni­cole Chap­man both fin­ished half a nett point be­hind Zill­man with Jim My­ers and Glenn Evans both record­ing 24 each.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions to all those who par­tic­i­pated,” Gal­lagher said.

“This Satur­day is the Jan­uary Monthly Medal and I have heard on the grape vine that one Jim Ed­wards is very keen to win all the Monthly Medals this year.

“Also, Aus­tralia Day is this Thurs­day so at sporters this week I would like to see who can turn up in their most Aus­tralian out­fit.

“I have elected Lind­say Baker to iden­tify the win­ning out­fit on the day.”

The of­fi­cial open­ing for the 2017 Gayn­dah golf sea­son is set for Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 4.

“It will be a two-ball am­brose so or­gan­ise your play­ing part­ner and come on out to open the sea­son,” Gal­lagher said.
