Tight at Tem­ple

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

IN the game of golf ev­ery shot counts and Alan White demon­strated to the rest of the field just how right that is on the week­end at the Sea Tem­ple Golf Course.

When he played to his hand­i­cap, and amassed 36 Sta­ble­ford points, this en­abled him to dis­tance him­self from a three-way tie for sec­ond.

When Ingo Doescher, Trevor Hauff and Curt But­ter­field all carded scores of 35 the count-back sys­tem was em­ployed to de­ter­mine that Ingo with a su­pe­rior back-nine would rel­e­gate Curt to third place.

A bril­liant shot lobbed into the 15th hole by By­ron Adam al­lowed him to win near­est­the-pin.

Gunter Sch­midtke re­turned to the win­ners’ cir­cle with a com­fort­able two-shot vic­tory in Fri­day’s Sta­ble­ford event.

He eas­ily ac­counted for Brent Smith who, in his first com­pe­ti­tion game, scored 34 points and came out­right sec­ond.

Alan White won near­est-the-pin on the 15th hole.

A large field con­tested Satur­day’s four-ball ball ag­gre­gate Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with even­tual win­ners Michael Cap­per and Alan Wy­ness nar­rowly edg­ing out Graeme Lees Smith and Rob Hart.

Michael (41) and Alan(36) re­turned a cred­i­ble 77 points while one-point adrift Graeme (41) and Rob (35) carded 76.

A spe­cial men­tion must go to both Graeme and Michael as they had 74 and 75 off the stick re­spec­tively.

A fur­ther three points be­hind in third place were Alan Cross­man and vis­i­tor Steve Orzani (The Wil­lows) who com­bined carded 73 points.

Karl Thorn played an ex­cel­lent shot into hole num­ber 11 and grabbed the near­est-thepin award.
