All-conquering Gregson wins Monthly Medal
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.
