Walker still on the run
The golf course had dried out considerably and combined with mown fairways, conditions were ideal, although a cool breeze ensured jerseys were a must.
JJ Walker was a late arrival, but was consistent, with a superb finish, scoring 15 points on his last 5 holes. Although he had a little trouble on the 1st and 18th, his 40 points was too good. Several 4-pointers on 7 and 15 aided his cause.
Koke Cashell gave another consistent performance, shooting 76 and flying home in 36, which included birdies on 10 and 18. Cashell’s 37 points kept him ahead of Dave Pollard and Duane Dick on 36. Pollard birdied the 4th, playing the short holes level with the card. Duane Dick also birdied 10 and 18, along with 9 pars in a solid performance, although he did spray it around on the 11th .
Denis Robertson relished the firmer going and extra run, scoring 34 points. James Fannin progressed to the next round of the Joblin and now meets Briany Bristol. With a little more care with the flat stick, Barrie Randall would have been talked about for the right reasons, but he did manage five 3-pointers in a solid front nine.
Players with outstanding matches should contact their opponent during the week confirming their encounter.
