In blustery but sunny conditions on Saturday, a good field of 87 players contested the Annual Hawke Trophy, a 4BBB Stableford Medley event.
Terry Griffiths is in a purple patch and this weekend teamed with Paul Kay to score 43 points for the day. Terry and Paul romped home with six 3-pointers on the back-9 to take the winners honours on a count back.
Andrew Dukes and Shane Sallaway also had 43 points, doing their best work on the front nine. Their highlight was a 4-pointer on the 7th which helped score 24 points for the front.
The ball sweep went to 38 points on count back. The NTP’s went to: 9th – Men: P Barnes; Ladies: B Duncan; 18th – Men: A Dukes; Ladies: N Deathh. The 3rd hole Super Pin went to Steve Betland.
The Sunday Stableford Medley was played in dreary conditions, but the scoring was certainly not the same.
Isaac Vale carried his form from Saturday to score 40 points and win the day. Runner-up, and also partner for the Saturday comp, was Jake Hemming who managed to get at least a point on each hole and finish with 35 points.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – Jake Hemming, 18th – nil, as they all missed the green. There was no ball sweep.
Don’t forget the 3-Person Ambrose on Sunday August 15, which carries a substantial prize for 1st place. Cowra has its 2-day Open on August 7 and 8.
Saturday August 7 is the Monthly Medal, sponsored by Bernardi’s Marketplace. Sunday August 8 has a Stableford Medley.
