Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT - Peter Shine

EX­CEL­LENT weather greeted the 55 play­ers who nom­i­nated for the Hobson’s Fur­ni­ture Store Par event on Sat­ur­day.

At 95 years young, Harry Black­burn showed that age was no bar­rier to achiev­ing win­ning scores with plus 5 to beat Carl Carulli on plus 4.

Alan Grieve was third with plus 3 and in fourth place was Paul We­ston with plus 2.

It was a great achieve­ment for Black­burn to achieve such an ex­cel­lent re­sult.

He showed dur­ing the past few weeks that he was ap­proach­ing an­other win with some good per­for­mances.

His win was set up on the front nine where he scored Plus 5.

Carl Carulli, the Scroungers win­ner again, showed he plays at his best dur­ing the hol­i­days when he has a chance to prac­tice by com­ing run­ner-up.

His score was set up with birdies on holes two, six, 11 and 16.

Ladies win­ner was Mar­garet Palumbo with mi­nus 2, beat­ing Lyn Joyce on a count­back.

TWENTY five play­ers braved the wet and windy con­di­tions to par­tic­i­pate at a scroungers event on Wed­nes­day, spon­sored by Har­ley Wy­att.

Tro­phy donor Wy­att pro­duced the best score on the day with 36 points, but as is the usual cus­tom, he pre­sented the win­ning prize to the run­ner-up Carl Carulli, who had 35 points to beat John Par­ton on a count­back.

Dave O’Shaugh­nessy con­tin­ued his pre­vi­ous Sat­ur­day form to score 34 points.

Scores were well be­low nor­mal due to the con­di­tions with a cou­ple of heavy rainy squalls blow­ing across the course dur­ing the af­ter­noon.

It was a day for the low hand­i­cap­pers with the three best scores com­ing from play­ers in sin­gle fig­ures.

Wy­att showed his prow­ess in the wind to pro­duce two even nines of con­sis­tent golf.

This was a great ef­fort for Wy­att be­cause, be­ing a fly-in fly-out worker he does not get too many chances to play golf.

Carulli usu­ally finds his best form dur­ing the school hol­i­days and once again has recorded a good score at the event.

Re­sults stable­ford: Har­ley Wy­att 36, Carl Carulli 35, John Par­ton 35, David O’Shaugh­nessy 34, Gra­ham Collins 33, Cec Hol­man 33, Peter Shine 33, Tony Joyce 32, Alan Cope 32, Alan Grieve 32, John Pow­ell 31, Garry Beacham 31, Char­lie Ser­ravite (Bun­bury) 30, Ming Yap 30, Ray Suarez 30, An­drew Black­burn 30. Gross stable­ford: John Par­ton 31, Har­ley Wy­att 29. 4Ball stable­ford: Tony Joyce, Dave O’Shaugh­nessy 44.

Vice-cap­tain Peter Shine and Cap­tain Garry Beacham con­grat­u­late win­ner Harry Black­burn.
