Shine se­cures mug

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT - Peter Shine

A field of 67 play­ers regis­tered for the monthly mug prize spon­sored by Jeff Gale.

Peter Shine, who shot an im­pres­sive 73 off the stick with 68 net, was an­nounced the win­ner from the un­lucky Ian Grieves with net 69. Alan Grieve was third with net 70 and Michael Black­burn was fourth with net 71, beat­ing Gra­ham Hal­ton and Ming Yap on a count­back.

Shine, who has been in great form, con­tin­ued on from the pre­vi­ous weeks. His iron play was the fea­ture of his game set­ting up nu­mer­ous birdie op­por­tu­ni­ties. But was only able to cap­i­talise on num­ber 10.

He pared the first nine and was one over on the sec­ond nine. The form of Shine has been con­sis­tent and his win was a wor­thy one. His hand­i­cap has come down from 7.2 to 3.8 dur­ing this time.

Grieves, who plays off an 18 hand­i­cap, was the hard luck story of the day. He had put him­self in a win­ning po­si­tion but fal­tered on the fi­nal two holes. He was go­ing along nicely af­ter start­ing on the back nine where he shot 42 off the stick in­clud­ing a birdie on No.11.

He was five over on the front nine af­ter seven holes but could not keep it to­gether for the fi­nal two holes which un­for­tu­nately he dou­ble bo­geyed. Grieves will be happy with his per­for­mance which has seen him lose a shot off his hand­i­cap. Grieve who was third had a cou­ple of con­trast­ing nines of 49 on the front and a 45 on the back. His four putt on No. 6 was most prob­a­bly his un­do­ing on tak­ing the ma­jor prize. Other than that blem­ish he played steady golf on his 24 hand­i­cap. Black­burn is play­ing some good golf of late con­tin­ued his resur­gence in form to record nines of 43 and 42 re­spec­tively.

Robyn Peet fresh from the Ladies Four­somes vic­tory con­tin­ued her good form to have the best ladies score. Play­ing off an 18 hand­i­cap her good score was set up on the back nine where she shot 42 off the stick.

Great con­di­tions for golf en­ticed 51 play­ers to regis­ter for the Harold Bris­lin event on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 13.

Mick Shilling pro­duced one of his great scores to win with 41 points from the in-form Frank Ital­iano who scored 40 points.

Mike Kelly was third with 38 points count­ing out Ge­off Ire­land on a count­back.

Shilling’s win was set up on the back nine where he scored 24 points in­clud­ing four-point­ers on No.2 and No. 9.

He has been build­ing up to a win as he has had pro­duced scores of 36 points and 37 points re­cently. Ital­iano who found his form dur­ing coun­try week con­tin­ued his con­sis­tent play to be the run­ner-up.
