IN a Fa­ther’s Day twist, 12 play­ers paired to­gether in a Four­ball Mul­ti­plier event at the Beech­worth Golf Club on Sun­day.

It’s a well-known fact that dads who play with their chil­dren help them de­velop bet­ter, and that was cer­tainly the case for the fa­ther-son com­bi­na­tion of Dean Howard and Ja­cob Howard who tal­lied 55 points.

Sec­ond place went to the only other pa­ter­nal match­ing of Andy Croome and Ben Croome on 51, again prov­ing that dads, too, feel guilty when they leave their kids.

Some dads strug­gle with the men­tal pres­sure of par­ent­hood, and maybe this was to blame for the re­main­ing pair­ings of Bren­ton Pool and Col Car­mody on 49, Dave Atkins and Zane Howard on 49, Mick Deuis and John Shee­han on 38, and Jamie Dolny and Brian Cro­p­ley on 37.

Tra­di­tion­ally, fa­thers tend to take a back seat when it comes to the house­hold chores, but Bren­ton put this to bed by clean­ing up with near­est the pins on the 3rd and 10th, with Mick also chip­ping in on the 5th.

There will be a fair few ab­sent fa­thers next week with 19 play­ers set to de­scend on Mal­don for the 2018 Vic­to­rian Sand­green Cham­pi­onships from Septem­ber 5-9.

For those who can­not get the en­tire week­end off, Chiltern will be host­ing their an­nual tour­na­ment on Sun­day.
