Four-ball at Hill Top

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — David Roberts — Foo­zle

Ross and Lyn Kelly were spon­sors of the four-ball v par event, which had a noon shot­gun start on Satur­day and was won by Ron Pop­ple and Jeff Baker with a score of +10.

Pop­ple started strongly and Baker took over in the mid­dle holes so they were nine up af­ter 12 holes.

It was a strug­gle from there with three putts on the 14th hole re­sult­ing in a loss, but a win on the 18th hole got them over the line from Bryan and Matt Miller who were run­ner­sup on +9.

Terry White and Graham Meneilly were +8, Yerly Vasquez and Dar­ren carter +7, Rocky and Lou Vil­lani +4 and Bruce Gross and Bob Oliver +4. John Keller was near­est­the-pin on the sixth hole, Matt Miller on the ninth and Bob Oliver on the 14th hole.

Jan Coe and Sh­eryl Cur­ran won the women’s four-ball com­pe­ti­tion with +6 and Judy Baker and Lyn Fan­ning were run­ners-up with +5. Sharon and Re­becca Jef­fers scored +4 as did Lyn Flett and San­dra Har­vey, to win a ball each.

Sharon Jef­fers won near­est- the-pin on the third hole, Lyn Fan­ning won on the sixth, Re­becca Jef­fers won near­est­the-pin and the jack­pot on the ninth and Di Day won on the 14th.

Men’s pen­nant

Round three of the Goul­burn Val­ley Di­vi­sion Six pen­nant was played atMooroopna on Sun­day when the two top pre­vi­ously un­de­feated teams Hill Top and Shep­par­ton met.

Hill Top’s core play­ers from the pre­vi­ous weeks were un­avail­able for se­lec­tion so a few of the club’s lower hand­i­cap­pers filled in for the day.

One is­sue when low hand­i­cap­pers play is that they need to be on their game to give strokes in the hand­i­cap di­vi­sion.

Gary Hopcraft was first off and played well to register a four up with three to go to win.

Dale Clarke who was act­ing cap­tain for the day could not find his touch and was de­feated 5/3.

At num­ber three, themid­dle spot of the team, David Rob- erts had a bad day with his golf and went down 4/3.

John Fan­ning was in a tight con­test all day and came up to the 18th one down.

A great shot from the trees set up a chance but his par putt lipped out to en­able his op­po­nent to square the hole and main­tain the one up re­sult.

John Keller dis­played his ever­green form and com­po­sure and man­aged a 3/2 win while giv­ing six strokes.

Over­all a 3/2 win to Shep­par­ton which will see them clear on top of the lad­der.

No doubt the reg­u­lar team play­ers will have plenty to say dur­ing the week.


Trevor Allen won Tues­day’s stroke com­pe­ti­tion with 89-18-71 and Jeff Baker was run­ner-up with 73.

Con­so­la­tion balls went to Terry White (73) and John Freuden­stein (75) and White also won near­est-the-pin.

The four-ball sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion on Thurs­day was a draw-for-part­ners event which was won by Bruce Gross and John Freuden­stein with 43 points.

Terry White and Leo McGrath were run­ners-up with 42, Gary Hopcraft and Ron Pop­ple won a ball each for their 40 points and Gary Hopcraft won another ball for near­est-the-pin.

Thurs­day’s Fish­ers Supa IGA Chook Run was won by John McCal­lum with 53-18-35 and Ken Hayes was run­ner-up with 36. Dale Clarke (361⁄ 2) and Dave Roberts (381⁄ 2) won a ball each in the run­down and Roberts won near­est-the-pin.

Com­ing events

We cross over into July this week and Satur­day’s event is monthly medal, spon­sored by GMCU.

With many reg­u­lar golfers head­ing north or west or over­seas, this is an op­por­tu­nity to pinch a medal while the field is thin­ner than usual.

So, out on the prac­tice tees and fair­ways and put your best drive for­ward this week.

Vic­tors: Jan Coe and Sh­eryl Cur­ran with spon­sor Ross Kelly af­ter their win.

Cheers: Jeff Baker and Ron Pop­ple celebrate with spon­sor Ross Kelly.
