This week many players enjoyed the four-ball best-ball competition with some excellent scores, none better than Coralie Volgyesi and Vicki Wyeth’s score of 50 points. Keith Rule and Larry Pershouse were runners-up on 48 points, with Neil Rieck and Michael Stanton third with 46 points on a countback. The approach shots were won by Keith Rule (in the hole) for the men on 1&10; Kev Savage (0.04m) for the combined approach on 4&13; Helen Ricciardi (0.8m) for the women on 6&15. Coralie (27 nett) easily led the Chook Run winners from Lisa Cooney (31), Ray Burrowes, Bob Cochrane, Ian McKay and Nigel Radin (32 each). Next week is the favoured stroke versus par competition, the second round of the Cooper Cup. It is also Melbourne Cup Day so we will play our game with time off for watching the race of the year.
