Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - DISTRICT GOLF -

Sat­ur­day was medal day, which at­tracted a field of 65 and was played in cool and show­ery con­di­tions.

Find­ing the win­ner was an easy task as Bob Gough had his per­sonal best score by com­ing in with a win­ning score of 76 off the stick, which equated to a net 60 play­ing off his mark of 16.

Gough’s round was that good that he ac­tu­ally scored bet­ter off the stick than Gus McKil­lop, who plays off a hand­i­cap of just one. His score of 77 was the best A grade scratch score for the day.

Paul Rene­han was the next best score in with a fine round of net 67 play­ing off his hand­i­cap of 19.

Peter Med­win won the A grade hand­i­cap event with a round of net 68 ply­ing off his mark of 11, while Stephen Bird won the C grade hand­i­cap event with a net 71 play­ing off his hand­i­cap of 31. Mal­colm Hirt had the best C grade scratch score for the day with a round of 95 off the stick.

Over­all scor­ing for the day proved to be very dif­fi­cult with just the six play­ers able to play to their hand­i­cap or bet­ter.

A field of 51 play­ers came out for a game on Thurs­day with Gary Kelly en­joy­ing a good run of form by com­ing in with the day’s best round of 40 points to win the B grade event, just the one point in front of Neville Howe.

Trevor Male won the A grade event with a score of 37 points play­ing off his mark of 10, one point in ad­vance of Ian Hop­per and a fur­ther point to Ian Archer in third place. A fi­nal score of 35 points down to a count back was needed to get a ball down the line.

A field of 30 came out for a game on the pub­lic hol­i­day Fri­day with sim­i­lar win­ning scores to the day be­fore.

Rick Fal­cone won the A grade event with a score of 40 points play­ing off his mark of 14, while Daniel Sch­midt won the B grade event with the same score, play­ing off his mark of 31.

Thirty-six was the num­ber needed to win a ball down the line.

The an­nual three-per­son am­brose event is sched­uled for Sat­ur­day Oc­to­ber 27 with a shot gun start at 9am. The event is al­ways a field sell-out, with a huge prize pool of $3000 this year.

En­try size is re­stricted to 38 teams of three, so if you are think­ing of play­ing phone the club to en­ter as soon as pos­si­ble. Sat­ur­day is a game of sin­gle stable­ford. The club hosted a play nine event on Sun­day, which is run by golf Vic­to­ria. The win­ner goes on to play in fur­ther events with the op­por­tu­nity to play at Royal Mel­bourne and then over­seas.

Bob Calder­ara had a pearler of a round, qual­i­fy­ing with a score of 26 points for his nine holes play­ing off his hand­i­cap of 13. Calder­ara’s round was made up of the four pars, the two bo­gies and an ex­cel­lent three birdies.
