Barry Webber made headlines in the press last week for his golfing prowess but this week he far surpassed last week’s win with a sensational 48 stableford points.
No, it wasn’t a four-ball, it was an individual round and Baz finished a massive 11 points ahead of his closest rival.
It is rare that a field gets humbled in such a devastating fashion and what really hurts the rest of us is that Barry lost just one lone shot off his playing handicap at Merrigum.
John Fuller headed the ball competition with 37 points and was joined by Greg Hall on 35 points and James Campbell with 34 points on a count back from Bruce Brown, Bruce Andrews and Frank Leyden.
Nearest-the-pins were won by Frank Leyden on the ninth and John Fuller on the jackpot 12th.
Last week’s twilight saw an increase in numbers and was won by Clint Prygoda with a round of 42-8-34, half a shot ahead of runner-up Frank Leyden who scored 47-12.5-34.5.
Clint’s putter was running hot and he won least putts with just 12 for the 10 holes.
Bill Bray took the jackpot for nearest-the-pin on the ninth and the two-point cut was 38.
This coming Saturday’s event is stroke for the Privilege Cup, sponsored by Bruce Brown, and incorporates least putts sponsored by Simon and Tash Doherty.
