New twist on old favourite
Pairs have shot at foursome variation
Winners on the day were Rod Wecker and Kevin Campbell with 60.5.
GOLF: Saturday players enjoyed a somewhat rarer form of play when 61 men and 11 women took to the course for a game of Chapman foursomes, sometimes also known as Canadian foursomes.
The game variation involved each pair of players both hitting off, then playing each other’s drive before deciding which ball to play from the third shot onwards, which are played with alternative hits from each player on the same ball.
Winners on the day were Rod Wecker and Kevin Campbell with 60.5, one-and-a-half shots ahead of runners-up Trish McNeill and Sherri Meade on 62.
In third place were John Dodds and Michael Cragg on 62, followed in the rundown by Theunis Venter and Wayne Fitzgerald (63), Danny York and Jason Bartz, Jim Dowell and Troy Hayes, Jake Nurse and Meg Lyons (64), Wendy Bradley and Vic Feldman, Benn Ryan and Steve Stewart, Lance Lloyd and Lloyd Kingston (65), Kym Hill and Chris Bailey, Gary and Elspeth Scotford (65.5) and Dean Kercher and Penny Wardroper (66).
No one got nearest the pin on number nine, with Finbar O’Flynn taking it home on 13, and Tina Badenhorst on 16.
Thursday players competed in a stroke event, with the 18hole division one win going to Dean Kercher, who narrowly beat Paul Joice on countback with 64 each.
Division two was claimed by Jim Dowell on 68, beating run- ner-up George Meharry by one stroke on 69, who came in ahead of Dave Thomas on countback, also with a nett 69.
In the division one rundown were Steve Stewart, Dave Rumble (66), Vic Feldman (67), Peter Fox, Warren Deighton and Pascal Neunreuther (69).
Paul Joice took out the ninehole competition with a nett score of 30, ahead of runnerup Dave Rumble (30.5). In the rundown were Steve Stewart (32), Brad Albertson, Les Bradford (33) and George Meharry (33.5).
Nearest the pins went to Conrad Werner on two, Trevor Paroz (13), Shane Cooke (13) and Brad Albertson (16).
This Saturday will be a 4BBB aggregate stableford event, with Thursday players competing in a stroke event in two divisions over 18-holes, as well as a nine-hole competition.
