Barry Webber now has a new name, ‘Ditto’, because he keeps repeating the same thing over and over again.
A case in point is his winning Merrigum’s Saturday golf competition for the third week in a row.
While Ditto didn’t reach the lofty heights of last week’s win he was still good enough to outplay the competition despite having lost a shot from his handicap last week.
His score was 102-34-68 and this won him Bruce Brown’s voucher, the Privilege Cup and a spot in the next ‘Tiger Cup’ playoff.
He has again lost another shot from his home club handicap but there will be quite a few who will be wishing it was a considerable amount more that he lost.
Ball competition winners were Andrew Wood 69 and Bruce Brown 70 on a count-back from John Fuller.
Nearest-the-pins were won by Bruce Andrews on the ninth, Roger Gillon on the jackpot 12th and Simon Doherty on the 14th.
Simon and Tash Doherty sponsor the least putts and this was won by Andrew Wood with just 24.
Craig Doherty achieved what no other person has been able to in recent times and that was to beat Barry Webber at last Thursday’s twilight competition.
Craig’s score was 46-11-35 which put daylight between himself and Barry after Bazza had a round of 55-16.5-38.5.
No nearest-the-pins went off but Simon Doherty won least putts with 15 and the two-point cut was 41.
Next Saturday’s event is pairs ambrose and is round two of the summer four-ball.
