First, no cigar

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — Foo­zle

Tim Nel­son from KyPark­land Golf Club had the best score in Satur­day’s stroke com­pe­ti­tion for the monthly medal.

His score of 89-24-65made him the clear win­ner but, as he is not a mem­ber of Hill Top, he was in­el­i­gi­ble to win the ma­jor tro­phy.

Terry White then claimed that tro­phy with 93-22-71 on a count­back.

Michael Downs won A-grade with 87-16-71 and Terry O’Brien was run­ner-up with 79-7-72.

Con­so­la­tion balls went to Rocco Barca and Bob Wildes 71, Glen Pearce and Ryan But­ler 72, Scott Carter, Ge­off Kerr, Dave Corn­wall and Bruce Gross 73, and Dave Roberts 74 on count­back.

Ian Elders won near­est the pin on the third hole, spon­sored by Lewis Homes, Matt Miller won on the sixth (Tatura Post Of­fice), John Fan­ning won on the 14th (A-1 Freight) and Dave Roberts won on the ninth (Tatura En­gi­neer­ing) and the jack­pot.

Mid­week

The stroke com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day was won by Jeff Baker with 92-23-69, on a count­back from Al­lan McGrath and Rocco Vil­lani.

Baker mixed six dou­ble bo­geys with two pars and a birdie on the front nine, but stead­ied on the back nine to win.

Vil­lani, Michael Downs and Ross Kelly each won a ball and Baker was near­est the pin.

It was Wildes’ turn to shine on Thurs­day when he won the stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 39 points and won near­est the pin with a teeshot on the ninth that ran over the edge of the hole.

He had a wipe on the fourth hole but the birdie on the ninth brought his score up to 16 for the front nine holes.

He cut loose on the back nine for 23 points, which would have won him al­most any count­back, bu­tit wasn’t needed.

Michael Downs was run­ner-up with 38 points on count­back from Trevor Allen and con­so­la­tion balls went to Kelly (36) and Ron Pop­ple (34).

IGA chook run

Dar­ryl Philling­ham won Thurs­day’s com­pe­ti­tion with a nett 35. Bev Roberts was run­ner-up with 36.

In the ball run-down, Les Na­tion had 37, Sh­eryl Cur­ran, Michael Mulc­ahy and Dy­lan Burls 38 and JohnMap­son 39. Near­est the pin was on the 14th hole and was won by Scott Carter.

Bo­gan bingo

The so­cial com­mit­tee pro­duced an­other win­ner on Satur­day when 90 ‘bo­gans’ ar­rived suit­ably dressed to cel­e­brate the cul­ture of the 1980s and ’90s and en­joy the mu­sic of that time.

Some were dis­con­certed to find that much of the mu­sic was still on their smart­phone’s playlist and those with­out a tat­too were right out of the run­ning to win the top prize.

The bo­gan who ar­rived with a box of cans car­ried in a pram set the tone for the evening, which gave many the op­por­tu­nity to catch up with friends not seen for a decade or two.

Well done to the or­gan­is­ers.

Com­ing events

Satur­day’s two-per­son am­brose com­pe­ti­tion has been named Elec­tri­cians’ Day as Col Saun­ders, Peter Col­li­son and Fred An­drews have joined to­gether to spon­sor the day.

The event is for twomen or two women, but not mixed.

There will be a shot­gun start at noon, great prizes and an af­ter­noon tea of both hot and cold food.

The GV Veter­ans play at Park­land on Mon­day.

Shocker

Garry Reese is tak­ing a lit­tle while to get back into the game after some time off for some re­pairs.

He was in all sorts of trou­ble after start­ing on the 10th hole on Thurs­day when his tee-shot went way right on to the 12th fair­way after bounc­ing off a tree.

His sec­ond shot struck an­other tree as he tried to get back on the orig­i­nal fair­way and his third struck yet an­other and re­bounded across the fair­way to the rough on the other side.

Of course he struck an­other tree be­fore guid­ing his fifth shot suc­cess­fully un­der branches back on to the fair­way but, with no shot on the hole, the writ­ing was on the wall, or, in this case, in the col­umn with the head­ing ‘W’.
