Elliott & Elliott Mixed Foursomes Champions
In recent years, it has been Mum and Son victorious at this gruelling format of the game, 2 days of your hit, my hit with nowhere to hide. This year however, in a return to their long-forged partnership, husband and wife team of Peter and Jeanette Elliott re-formed to prove they still have the goods.
Shooting 84 and 85 off the stick both days gave them a total 4 shots better than second place Pat Walker and Darrell Cassidy and 8 shots better than day 1 second place holders Toni and Craig Filmer. Peter and Jeanette have been doing this for too many years and their well-worn combination stood the test of time to capture the bikkies. In the Nett Division, all kudos goes to a crippled Ron Page and first timer Jacque Solah who also played below their handicaps for the weekend to record the “after handicap” section. Ron and Jacque shot 65/72 nett for their 2 rounds to bring home a result 5 better than their combined handicap for the weekend. Well done Jacque for carrying him.
Day 1 winners were Jacque and Ron with that magic 65 nett, whilst day 2 winners were Herb and Marj Manwaring with a 68 nett.
Taylor takes Midweek… Again
Grahame Taylor has made it 2 weeks in a row. Not happy blowing 5 shots off his handicap last week, he has come out and done it again by the same amount. Grahame has shot 29 points around the 12 hole layout with 24 points reserved for a par round. Grahame will now be down to 10 handicap on resumption this week.
Second place and also habit forming as bridesmaid was Peter Steinke 2 shots back on 27 points. Bringing in 3rd were David James and Ron Kerr who also played better than handicap at 25 points.
The random lucky mystery ball winner was Bill Kildea.
This week sees the gents begin their 4 day 2019 Championships. Round 1 will be on Saturday with the August Medal and the Fred Sewell Memorial Day. Round 2 will be held Sunday with the next rounds the following weekend. The first 2 rounds will be brought by Thompson’s Rural Supplies and also Harden Bearing Service.
The ladies roll straight into their Foursomes Championships which is brought to them by Harden Pharmacy as major sponsor.
See you in battle.
