Results Week Ending 20th August 2017Published on 24th August 2017 in Results
Our Ladies sweep the week’s teams events, Leuk the Duck lands in the hands of our very own Captain Concrete, Ron Hood gets a double, our youngest ever winner of the weekly Mystery Hole, Bonneville remains elusive for our NSW Mens fourball team and “hit ‘em straight” works a treat as a windy, dry August prevails at Wenty.
With ground temperatures at around 2 deg, the only thing that’s growing at the moment is the national debt. Right now on the course, the real impact of all the hard work of our green staff put in week on week, can really be seen. If you look at photos of the course from recent, previous years, the improvement is stunning.
Thanks go out to Damien and all his staff.
Our Tuesday Open medley was won by Ron Hood, the first of his two wins for the week. He edged out “always on the podium” Frank Tregier with John Riley taking out the best visitor honours.
Thursday was a Par Handicap and 2BBB. Ismail Kaba and Denise Sygraves had wins in their individual events and Denise then partnered with Joan Wood for an impressive 1st place in the teams. I would love to have some stats around Joan’s wins over the years. I am certain that they would reveal that she has had more victories that Arnold Palmer. Well done Joan.
Saturday saw a Single Stableford in conjunction with a teams’ aggregate event and the 2nd round of our Handiskins tournament. Ron Hood took out the mens’ event for his second win of the week. Well done Ron. Tony McQuillan, John Celeban and Shane Hines were Ron’s main competitors with Linda Loftus topping the Ladies event. Looks like Andrew will be on dishes duty this week with Linda also partnering Magda Cawthorne to take out the Teams event in a canter from Ken Nicholson and president Stuart Liddell. Tony McQuillan won the Handiskins 2nd round and gets partnered with his very own “Leuk the Duck” head cover. Leuk the Duck is a symbol of Challenge, which supports Children Living with Cancer.
Our Saturday Mystery Hole winner was Aiden Cullen. “Boy” as he is affectionately known had 20 points on the back nine and NTP on the 15th. Father Dave was happy to collect the winnings which I am certain will find its way to what must be a tidy pocket money tally for the week for Aiden. Aiden has dropped his handicap from 36 to 24 and is another great example of our Junior program. Well done Aiden.
Sunday had US Kids Golf day at Wenty and the Mens NSW Fourball State Qualifier at Oberon. Whilst we did not get to Bonneville this year, we at least marked the winners card and put away a heap of the locally made Rissole sandwiches. (yummy)
Next week we have our Saturday Monthly Medals and the continuation of our Honour-board Matchplay qualifying rounds. Good luck to everyone.
All the week’s results can be found in the results area of our website, including Handiskins leaderboard and draws for our Matchplay events. Well done to all our participants.
