Howard retains golf title
STILL recovering from one of the most anticipated and lucrative fights in the history of world boxing, nine players got ready to rumble for September’s Monthly Medal at the Beechworth Golf Club on Sunday.
In a unanimous points decision, Jacob Howard (35) retained the title with an amazing score of 59 nett, with Jamie Dolny (18) almost going punch for punch on 62.
Those who were knocked out in the first round included Zane Howard (21) 67, Ben Croome (17) 69, Dean Howard (26) 70, Col Carmody (22) 70, Andy Croome (15) 72, Peter Smith (19) 75, and Brian Cropley (36) 77.
Andy made a good fist of his tee shot on the 17th scoring a Nearest the Pin.
Four of our members also made the most of father’s day on Sunday, taking part in Rutherglen’s Annual Tournament.
Graeme Pool got much more than a pair of socks enjoying a rare victory in the 18 hole Scratch in C Grade.
We also cannot forget about the women, with four ladies coming fit and firing for another round of Stableford on Wednesday.
Gail Smith (19) played with unshakeable consistency posting an insurmountable score of 37 points, with Lorraine Poyntz (28) next best on 31.
Failing to fire on the day were Glenda Marshall (13) 27 and Jan Lang (24) 22.
The main event next Sunday is Versus Par at 12pm, while 10 of our members will step into the ring for the Victorian Sandgreen Championships in Wedderburn, with the undercard being Chiltern’s Annual Tournament.
