On Saturday the November Monthly Medal, sponsored by Jelbart’s Tyrepower, was played in an ever-present wind, which sometimes became too much for some of the 55 players to handle. But the Medal winners were all seemingly unaffected.
The A-Grade went to Todd Callaghan (71 nett) ahead of a confident Dave Mylecharane (72 nett), looking for a second medal. The B-Grade required a count back to separate Bob Borger (70 nett) as the winner from Ash Tucker (70 nett). In the C-Grade it was once again a win to gentlemanly Rod Besgrove (73 nett) over a luck- less Bruce Squires (74 nett).
The ball sweep went to 75 nett on count back, going to: 70 – R Borger, A Tucker; 71 – T Callaghan; 72 – D Mylecharane, L O’Connor; 73- P Pymont, R Besgrove, T West; 74 – B Squires, M Spice, A Currey, B Everest, B Chandler; 75 – J Coulthurst.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – B Everest; 18th – D Rhodes, with Dave converting his for ‘2’. Over the weekend the Lachlan Valley (LV) team contested the NSW Country Championships in Bathurst and led after day 1 with good scores by Steve Betland, John Betland and Shane Sallaway.
On Day 2 the rain held off until later in the day but the wind was still a problem. The LV team slipped to 5th place. The Illawarra team surged to the top, from 5th on Day 1, finishing ahead of Central West by 3 shots.
The Forbes Nissan Classic, sponsored by Frank Spice Motors, is this weekend, 9/10 November, with the 4BBB on Saturday and Individual Stroke on Sunday. The tee time sheets are in the Pro Shop. There are some gaps there so you may still get a spot to play.
