That’s right. He did it again! On a mission to get into A Grade by next Monthly Medal is the Club’s very own Brian Wales. Lost to the Club in the golfing wilderness the year before last, hasn’t he come back with a vengeance.
Brian has recorded 39 stableford points on a tough day out for the field, and beat his nearest rival by 3 shots no less. That will guarantee him further reductions with the handicapper being the only person to play under handicap and by a considerable margin. I bet Brian is just GolfLink’s biggest fan (behind Brucey that is). Well done champion, keep up the good work and the Captaincy of the Pennants Team can be yours again.
Runner up on the day and starting to become the perennial bridesmaid (dresses in those Hawaiian shirts would be just so yummy), was Johnny Brownhill. Only Brian and John played at, or better than handicap this week. John had 36 stableford points to lead the balls. Others claiming balls included Kevin Hoppe (35 pts), Tam Kennedy (35 pts) and Nathan Hawkins 33 points.
The Bendigo Bank Hole in One Hole did not yield but the guy who owns this hole these days, Peter Steinke, again claimed nearest the pin. Pete was at the kick in length of 6.1m. Easy birdie no doubt… ha!
Alby has been keenly following the procession of weekly Champions at midweek, but this week the mail did not come. Maybe the storms and tempest on Friday flooded our main man’s study? Next week folks.
The field is filling up fast so we need you to get your names in lickety split. Get your team of 4 players with valid AGU or LGU handicaps, and get them on the start sheet at the Bar. Ring the Club if need be on 6386 2483 to confirm your place. The Scramble is this Sunday at 10am registration with a 10.30am shotgun.
The Summer Stablefords continue from lunch time on Saturday.
See you all on the links. – Alby
