Garfield com­plete tour­na­ment

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

It was a big week of golf as the Garfield club hosted its an­nual tour­na­ment.

It con­sisted of a four ball on Wed­nes­day, a sin­gle stable­ford event on Thurs­day, a rest day on Fri­day, and a stroke event on Satur­day fol­lowed by a mixed event on Sun­day.

The weather was glo­ri­ous for the first two days of play, but it re­ally turned sour on Satur­day with com­peti­tors be­ing pounded by wild winds with rain and hail.

Due to the ad­verse con­di­tions a de­ci­sion was made to re­duce the holes played on Satur­day with A grade and B grade play­ing 18 holes, while C grade was re­duced to a nine-hole event.

The A grade scratch event was taken out by Gus McKil­lop on a count back with a score of 72, while Ryan Hammond won the hand­i­cap event , also with a score of 72.

Pe­ter Glass­cock won the B grade scratch event, also on a count back with a score of 84 and Greg Mack­lin won the hand­i­cap event, again on a count back, with a score of 71.

David Williams was the B grade hand­i­cap run­ners up with a score of 71.

Tolly Ba­haris won the C grade scratch event with a score of 41 while Daniel Hill won the hand­i­cap event with a score of 31.5.

Pe­ter John­son was the C grade hand­i­cap run­ners up with a score of 34.5.

The bad weather greatly im­pacted on the over­all field sizes with 17 play­ers tak­ing part in A grade, 42 in B grade with 40 play­ers tak­ing up the chal­lenge for the C grade event.

Wed­nes­day’s four ball stable­ford event at­tracted a field of 19 pairs for the men, while 13 pairs of women took part.

John Richer and Ge­orge Gray did best for the men’s event with a score of 49 points to win on a count back from Marty Atkins and Drouin guest Chris Ho­gan. Atkins and Ho­gan went around the front nine with a mas­sive 28 points, so ended up be­ing stiff to get beaten.

A big score of 47 points or bet­ter was needed to win a ball down the line.

Deb­bie Huyskens and Pak­en­ham guest Kay Jones won the women’s event with a score of 42 points on a count back from Heather Payne and Chris Caig. A score of 41 points or bet­ter was re­quired to win a ball down the line.

Thurs­day’s sin­gle stable­ford event at­tracted a field of 46 with Mick Ney­lan cap­ping off a con­sis­tent sum­mer/au­tumn pe­riod by win­ning the A grade event with a score of 38 points, just the one point in ad­vance of Greg Need­ham.

How­long guest Steve Ko­hut Se­nior won the B grade event with a huge score of 45 points, five points to the bet­ter of Terry McLaugh­lin in sec­ond place.

A fi­nal score of 36 points down to a count back was re­quired to win a ball down the line. Next week is a game of sin­gle stable­ford. Vale Wally O’Hara The com­mit­tee, mem­bers, staff and many friends mourn the death of Wally O’Hara, who died sud­denly on Satur­day evening.

Wally joined the club in 2012 and was a val­ued and ded­i­cated mem­ber for the past six years, be­ing a weekly com­peti­tor on both Thurs­days and Satur­days.

Wally was a true gentleman and will be sadly missed by all that knew him. The club ex­tends its deep­est sym­pa­thy to the O’Hara fam­ily.
