The Individual 18-hole Stroke Medal competition on Saturday, sponsored by ‘The Roadies’ group of club members, was contested by a field of 57 who eagerly wanted to win their respective Grades.
The A-Grade winner was Mark ‘Stubbie’ Collits with a fine 69. Mark had to ward off Dave Mylecharane, runner-up on count back, and Peter Cowhan who missed out. They played well, with each having only one blemish.
The B-Grade also scored low. Dave Rhodes was confident throughout his 71 nett. Runner-up was Laurie O’Connor, 72 on count back from Jeff Haley. The C-Grade also went low, with the winner Nick Ryan finishing on 68 nett and recording the best score of the day. The runner-up was Matt Duff with his 71 nett.
The ball sweep went to 73 on count back: 68 – N Ryan; 69 – M Collits, D Mylecharane, P Cowhan; 70 – K Cobcroft; 71 – R Rho- des, S Kirkman, M Duff, R Webb; 72 – J Dobell, N McMillan, L O’Connor, J Haley; 73 – I Bown, C Simmons. The NTP’s went to: 9th – D Mylecharane; 18th – S Grallelis.
The Sunday Stableford Medley was a small affair with many players away on Pennants duty. The winner was Andrew Dukes with 27 points. There was no runner-up or ball sweep. The NTP’s, sponsored by GWG, also went to Andrew, as he collected both.
