Mer­rigum golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

Mer­rigum golfers played a stroke round on Satur­day, an­other day when they, for the most part, strug­gled to post good scores.

The re­cent rain has been great for the course but has made it play longer and Satur­day’s cool breeze did not make the go­ing any eas­ier ei­ther.

Si­mon Do­herty has been in con­sis­tent form and has been able to keep his hand­i­cap sta­ble while many oth­ers’ hand­i­caps head out dur­ing the win­ter months, and on Satur­day he did enough to win the event, al­beit on a count-back with a score of 84-13-71.

That was a pretty fair ef­fort given the con­di­tions but he didn’t have it all his own way.

Clint Pry­goda had ex­actly the same score but un­for­tu­nately did not per­form as well over the clos­ing holes and thus lost out in the count-back.

The scribe is not sure if the two played in the same group, but if they did it would have been a com­pet­i­tive round of golf.

John Fuller was the next best with 73 nett.

Tony Bor­relli con­tin­ues to plun­der the golf club’s cash re­serves, tak­ing the only near­est-the-pin to go off, the jack­pot 12th. He has made a habit of tak­ing the money in re­cent times.

Next Satur­day’s event is stroke for the Priv­i­lege Cup, Kyabram Tyre Ser­vice and eclec­tic round six, Vic­to­ria Ho­tel of Tatura-spon­sored near­est sec­ond shot on the 11th and least putts spon­sored by Si­mon and Tash Do­herty.

This is a direct swap with Satur­day, Septem­ber 2 which is now the New­ton’s Par­cel Ser­vice pairs am­brose.

Also, a re­minder that the open 27-hole club cham­pi­onship is com­ing up on Sun­day, Au­gust 27.
