The Summer Cup has been reduced to the best two rounds out of three due to the first round not being able to be played due to smoke.
Saturday’s second round saw Cliff Richards post an impressive 41 points to take out the A Grade event for the day and establish a handy lead in the overall competition. Paul Lloyd scored a solid 36 points to take out B Grade and Steve Edgenton took out C Grade with 33 points.
Brian Searl lead the ball winners with 38 points from Steve Young with 36 points, Alan Kelly with 36 points, Dave Douglass with 33 points, Steve Wheatley with 33 points and Richard Hanna with 32 points.
Tony Clibborn took out Nearest the Pin on 9 and Steve Young was closest on 17.
The Ladies Summer Cup Round 2, played over 9 holes, saw Gaye Wilson take out the day’s event with a solid 19 points from Helen Crawford with 13 points.
Wednesday’s Medley Single Stableford saw Col Langdon continue his recent return to form to take out the day’s event with 37 points, on a countback from Simon Allen with the same score.
Ball winners were Gary Batten with 36 points, Tim Bedingfeld with 35 points, Alan Kelly with 33 points, Mal Crockett with 31 points, Roy Hankinson with 31 points and Phil Ingram with 31 points.
On Sunday Gaye Wilson took out the second round of Rulie’s Trophy with 32 points.
Sunday’s Men’s Single Stableford saw Phil Amey, with 42 points, easily take out the event. Phil was aided by a red hot putter (and a few slices of luck) and sizzled round the back nine with 25 points and only 9 putts, 22 putts for the full 18.
Norman Marshall with 39 points lead the ball winners, from Steve Young with 39 points, Tony Monday with 36 points, Hunter Caldwell with 35 points, Jack Johnson with 35 points and Mal Crockett with 34 points.
Nearest the pin went to Phil Amey on 9 and Hunter Caldwell on 17. Hunter’s ball ended up 3 metres dead behind the pin and must have looked great in the air.
Next Saturday sees the third round of the Ladies and Men’s Summer Cup whilst on Sunday there will be a Men’s and Ladies Single Stableford with the Ladies comp Round 3 of Rulie’s Trophy.
