With three first time visitors adding to our numbers a field of 65 players teed off in today's Stroke and Putts event. Results on the day were as follows:
1st: Warren Hodder, playing off a handicap of 29, with a score of 29 strokes nett.
2nd: Ron Hanlon on 32 on count back.
3rd: Lee Ridgway on 32.
Ball or Chocolate:
Paul Green and Noel Downie on 33, Robin Green, Ray Downey, Frank Pomfret, Wal Williams and Henry Anderson on 34, Greg Ware, Rick Brake and Leonie Snodgrass on 35, Lyn Benger, Margaret Downey, Gus Alameddine and Alan McLeod on 36, and finally Kay McLeod on 37.
Two players accumulated 13 putts over 9 holes with the winner Ian Manton being determined on count back.
Alex Lloyd, one of our visitors from Canberra, who as it turns out is relatively new to golf and was harshly done by by the handicapper, took out the award this week.
Nearest the Pins:
4th: Ian Miller ( in the hole).
6th: Frank Pomfret.
Ladies 7th: Kay McLeod.
Men's 7th: Ian Manton.
Wal Williams won the award with a fine drive close to the centre line.
The event next week will be a Stableford 3 club game where only three clubs, including a putter, can be carried. Registration will be from 7.45am in the downstairs sports bar area with a shotgun start at 8.30am.
