VETS

AF­TER a dis­mal morn­ing the skies cleared for the Vets to hit off in pleas­antly warm con­di­tions play­ing a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion.

SO­CIAL

AL­MOST a sum­mer morn­ing greeted the 27 Childers play­ers and the 8 Light­house play­ers who turned up for the sec­ond round of the An­nual Tro­phy Game. Last time we played the Light­house was ahead on per­cent­age by 5.2 points mak­ing it im­per­a­tive that we pulled our socks up and played well. We also had on our side our se­cret weapon trees, some­thing the Light­house play­ers weren’t ac­cus­tomed to. Af­ter care­fully adding the Gross Scores from both teams and di­vid­ing by the num­bers in those teams to get a per­cent­age we came in at Childers 101.375 and Light­house at 111.625 which when the 5.2 was sub­tracted left them at 106.45 giv­ing the Childers So­cial Golf club the win over the two games. For Mug Day the win­ner on 59? was Bob Cochrane and he man­aged to lose 4.3 off his hand­i­cap. Sec­ond was Mick Ryan on 62, not 72 as I men­tioned af­ter the game and I was able to dock him 3.0 off his hand­i­cap and third on a count­back from Ed Con­nell was Chris Fitzsimons on 64, not 74 and los­ing 0.9 off his hand­i­cap. Bob Cochrane also man­aged to win the B-grade Ap­proach on the 1st/10th and the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 6th. Bruce Hadley won the A-grade Long­est Drive, Terry Small­man the B-grade Long­est Drive and the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th, Col Den­nett the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 4th/13th but not close enough to trou­ble the Golden Cir­cle, Ed Con­nell the Com­bined Ap­proach on the 7th/16th and last but not least the Least Putts went to Paul McCar­ragher with 24 putts. It was a great game played in a good spirit. We look for­ward to meet­ing again next year. Next week we will be play­ing at Mary­bor­ough. Tee off time is 7.45am, so be there at least by 7.30am or ear­lier if you can so the Cap­tain can or­gan­ise the cards and play­ers in each group. Ed Con­nell will lead the first group and lay out the hole prize mark­ers and boxes and the long­est drive mark­ers and Paul McCar­ragher will lead the last group to pick them up. The game will be a Sta­ble­ford so if you can’t make a point please pick up to keep the game mov­ing. Have a great week and see you all on Sun­day at Mary­bor­ough.
