MAX Hunter returned to form in winning the April monthly medal stroke competition with a returned nett score of 65 for the round.
His outward nine needed 43 strokes and included a 10 at hole 4 where the ball might have disappeared to look at the trains. The inward nine produced the same score of 43 strokes for his round. Obviously, Max prefers afternoon golf to morning golf. Also showing some form was Greg Yap, who claimed runner-up prize with a nett score of 66. Both players have come to the notice of the handicapper who will take the appropriate action.
The ladies’ medal event was a bit more one-sided with Kay Webb winning with a nett 70. Kay’s front nine included a nasty 8 at the second hole but she regrouped to come home in 45 strokes. Next best was Lyn Ludlow taking runner-up prize with nett 75.
Appreciation extended to our sponsor of the day, club captain, Richard Reardon.
Best gross for the day went to Scott Constable with 76 for the round.
Ladies’ winner, Kay, also had lowest gross for the ladies with 94.
Junior golfer, Matt Burgess, had least putts, needing 25 for the round.
Neta Thouard and Kay Webb shared the ladies’ putting honours with 29 for the round. Aaron Simmers finally won a pin shot with nearest to the pin at 3.
Stephen Kay held on to 12 and Len Leigh collected 17. Helen Jones took the ladies’ pin at 3 with no takers for the rest. Darryl Boekholt, Ian Harvey and Max Hunter each collected a pro-pin on the day.
The birdies’ nest was shared three ways among Ian Harvey, Matt Waterworth and Alan Accurate.
In the run down, a ball to scores of nett 71 and better for the men.
Next Saturday is a single stableford and sponsor for the day is Madeline Jarman. Tee-off from 11.30am and timesheet is on the board.
A GREAT day was enjoyed by all at our Maureen Bates Memorial Day on Sunday. Winners for the day were Brendon Barker and Peter Goodsir. Our thanks to Rex and family for the beautiful prizes supplied for Sunday.
