Saturday’s Ladies July Monthly Medal was a close affair with Pat Crawford putting together a good back nine to edge out Gaye Wilson by a shot, finishing with 81 net.
Saturday’s first round of the Winter Cup, a 4BBB vs Par event was equally close with Marty Gelling and Wayne Flynn winning the day with plus 8, a shot ahead of Steve Young and Craig Wheatley, Torin Findlow and Peter Smith and Lyndon and Cameron Taylor a shot further back, all on plus 7.
Still in contention on plus 5 were the four teams of Richard Simpson and David Crawford, Sean Smith and Mark Rainsford, David Goggin and Tony Venables and Norman Marshall and Rob Smith. The last of the ball winners were youngsters Tom Lloyd and Hunter Caldwell, still well in contention on plus 4 as were two other teams.
It will be interesting to see who stands up to the plate in next Saturday’s final round.
Wednesday’s Ladies Single Stableford was also close with Gaye Wilson defeating Misook Barnes on a countback with both finishing on 36 points. Helen Crawford was next best with 31 points from Jenny Rainsford with 31 points.
Wednesday’s Men’s Single Stableford kept the series of tight wins going with Phil Ingram beating Brian Searl on a countback with both players finishing on 36 points.
Ball winners were Gary Batten with 35 points, Kerry Blencowe with 34 points, Andreas Geach with 33 points, Josh Rainsford with 33 points, Warren Bray with 32 points, Peter Smith with 32 points, Mark Rainsford with 31 points, Phil Amey with 31 points and Sean Smith with 31 points.
Sunday’s Medley Single Stableford was won a single point with Paul Lloyd with 39 points beating Mark Wiggins and Hunter Caldwell both on 38 points.
Ball winners were Seam Smith with 36 points, Brian Searl with 35 points, John Harris with 35 points, Donna Smith with 33 points, Tony Monday with 31 points and Gary Batten with 30 points.
A couple of unusual sights brightened up a dreary, drippy Sunday with the Mighty Flynn once again seen wearing long trousers and John Harris playing the front nine with a rake in his bag even though there are no bunkers on the front nine!
