Scores im­press at stroke com­pe­ti­tion

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT -

Forty-nine play­ers en­tered for the third round of the club cham­pi­onship stroke on Septem­ber 15 which was played in the best golf con­di­tions for some time.

Jim Bianchi pro­duced an­other great score of net 67 to beat Harley Wy­att, who had net 68, in the com­pe­ti­tion spon­sored by Su­per IGA’s Dave Beech.

An­drew Hen­der­son, who played in the morn­ing, was third with net 69 with Dave O’Shaugh­nessy in fourth with net 71.

Bianchi pro­duced an­other win­ning score fol­low­ing on from his net 69 the pre­vi­ous Sat­ur­day.

He put to­gether two even nines of 44.

His could have even been a bit bet­ter other than a triple bo­gey on No.18 for the sec­ond week in a row.

With his vic­tory, Bianchi is now chal­leng­ing the lead­ers for the golfer of the year.

Wy­att pro­duced an im­pres­sive score of 74 off the stick high­lighted by birdies on No. 6 and 17.

He shot even par on the first nine and 2 over on the sec­ond 9 which in­cluded a dou­ble bo­gey on num­ber 14.

Hen­der­son, who is start­ing to put some good golf to­gether over the past few weeks, birdied num­ber 3 and 15 to be the high­lights of his round.

O’Shaugh­nessy con­tin­ued his con­sis­tent form of late.

Stroke net: J. Bianchi 67, H. Wy­att 68, A. Hen­der­son 69, D. O’Shaugh­nessy 71, W. Hatch 73, J. Gale 73, B. Black­burn 73, A. Cope 74, J. Lis­ter 74, J. Par­ton 75, T. Joyce 75, J. Pow­ell 75, P.

An ex­cel­lent field of 49 play­ers reg­is­tered for the Scroungers event spon­sored by Ste­wart and Vi­enna Jones on Septem­ber 12 and played in driz­zly rain for the first nine holes.

Kevin Wooltor­ton who was toss­ing up if he should travel down from Man­durah to play was glad that he did as he posted his best score in a num­ber of years to be a run­away win­ner with 44 points.

The con­sis­tent Cec Hol­man was sec­ond with 38 points to beat Vince Cosentino on a count­back.

New mem­ber An­drew Rogers was fourth with 37 points to beat Noe­lene Wooltor­ton on a count­back.

In his vic­tory speech, Wooltor­ton said he was sur­prised on how well he had played as his form since re­turn­ing from his car­a­van­ning hol­i­day has not been that flash.

His win­ning score was set up with birdies on num­ber 1 and num­ber 6 and it could have been a lot bet­ter as he also wiped two holes.

Hol­man who has been played very well of late to be run­ner-up scored a birdie on num­ber 9 which was his high­light.

With his good scor­ing of late, Hol­man must have put him­self in con­tention for scrounger of the year.

Cosentino, who has started play­ing more golf in re­cent times, showed he was start­ing to find some form.

Rogers was only re­cently al­lo­cated his hand­i­cap, and he showed it would not be long be­fore he found him­self with a win­ning score.

Scroungers Stable­ford: Kevin Wooltor­ton 44, Cec Hol­man 38, Vince Cosentino 38, An­drew Rogers 37, Noe­lene Wooltor­ton 37, Jim Baggetta 36, Frank Ital­iano 36, Lau­rie Mor­ley 36, An­drew Black­burn 36, Trevor Pig­gott 36, Harry Black­burn 35, Peter Shine 35, Garry Beacham 35, Ron Skelcher 34, John Par­ton 34, Kevin Roney 33, An­drew Hen­der­son 33, Rod Thom­son 33, Lyn Joyce 32, Ming Yap 32, Harold Bris­lin 32, Corey Hick­man 32, Howard Lane 32.
