The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - SPORT - GOLF by EVEN PAR

CHAL­LENG­ING con­di­tions didn’t have any ef­fect on scor­ing dur­ing Satur­day’s Monthly Medal event at the New Nor­folk Golf Club.

With the greens be­ing cored and sanded, putting was ex­pected to be tough, but it didn’t have too much im­pact on scor­ing.

Thomas Greg­son fired a fan­tas­tic 60 net for the score of the day, tak­ing out the Monthly Medal and Di­vi­sion 3.

Run­ner-up to Thomas in Di­vi­sion 3 was Doug Jenk­ins, who re­turned with a 66 net.

Tom Shep­pard took out the gross with 87 off the stick.

In Di­vi­sion 1, Kye Tomkin­son took out the net with a 65, with Fred Carmichael on 67.

John Hastie re­turned to form to win the gross with an ex­cel­lent 72.

Mike Smith was the clear win­ner in the Di­vi­sion 2 net, hav­ing fired a 63, with the next best Ken El­well on 67 net.

Josh Wat­son took out the gross with an 83.

Wed­nes­day’s com­pe­ti­tion was also a stroke, and Fred Carmichael was the win­ner of the 18-hole event with a fine 65 net, with Wayne Hodge run­ner-up on 66 net.

In the nine-hole event, Col Dare had an amaz­ing round to come in with a 29 net.

This Satur­day’s event is a sta­ble­ford, with spots still avail­able.
