Nearest-the-pin on the third was Moz Fowler and on the 16th was Richards.

Today will be 4BBB stableford competition.
Thursday’s chicken run saw 16 players brave the wet weather for stroke competition on the back nine.
The winner with 40-6-34 nett was Shaun Bryant, and nearest-the-pin was Shane McCormick.
Tomorrow will be par event to be played on the front nine with nearest-thepin on the eighth hole.
The president versus captain day at Nagambie provided plenty of fun and laughs with the president’s team taking the win by the smallest of margins — 30.94 to 30.75 — meaning captain Barry Cryer was $100 lighter at the bar courtesy of the defeat.
The stableford event contested on the day threw up some rare, seldom occurring and widely spaced out results, with Jeff Mills and Shaun Bryant both scoring 37 points and needing to be separated on count back.
Mills was the eventual winner and was the most shocked of anyone in the clubhouse when the result was read out.
In his acceptance speech he thanked his playing partners and was particularly satisfied with beating Bryant by such a small margin.
Next best scores went to Dave Fullager with 36 and Jeff Lodding and Lindsay Hall on 35.
The nearest-the-pins went to Tim Baldwin, jamming one up to the eighth, Phillip Neville needing all his strength and a wood to reach the 13th, and Greg Whiteman managing to hit one decent shot for the day on the 16th.
Saturday night was the club presentation which was a great success.
Congratulations to all the trophy winners throughout the year and a special mention to Bill Leviston on achieving a life membership — an achievement appreciated by the entire club.
Next week’s golf is a monthly medal as well as the first round of the summer trophy.
On office duty is D. Love and in the bar is B. Leviston.
