3 Clubs Plus Putter No Barrier to Good Scores at Tuross Vets

A smaller than usual field of 46 players registered for a novelty 3 Clubs plus Putter event at Tuross Head Vets Golf on Wednesday 23 February. Numbers were down on usual, perhaps attributable to showers overnight and the prospect of more rain during the morning. Fortunately the rains held off for a warm but humid morning of golf. Winner on the day was Paul Pereira, incidentally celebrating his 86th birthday, with a score of 18 points, beating home on count back with same score Neil Mather. Other major prizes went to Len Rogers and Greg Smith, both with scores of 16.

Minor prizes were awarded to Rob Nash, Rick Brake and Barry Hoban on 16, Derek Hoare and Daniel Madden on 15, and finally to Ross Richardson and Ted Quinlan on 13. Ian Manton struggled with a +2 handicap and took out the Bradman award this week, but only after a closely fought contest to do so. Nearest the pins went to Peter McRae on the 4th, Greg Smith on the 6th, and to Chris Wratten and Peter McRae on the 7th. Jane Eglitis won the Accuracy drive.

Winner Paul Pereira (taken well before his 86th birthday!!)
