Peisley Medals in Fine Form

On a fine day for golf despite a 1 to 2 club north-westerly wind, the course mucked up like a second hand whipper snipper taking most of the field by surprise. It was who could survive the tough wind and the damp track but greens like glass and tough pin cuts, that would see the day out.

Eventually only one man could play at or below his handicap for the day and tame all of the conflicting elements. Sensai Matt Peisley – step forward.

Matt has won the Day’s Event, the A Grade Medal, the A Grade Scratch, the Guzzlers Mug and put some big dents into his year long Eclectic. On the day Matt had a 76 shot round with a 70 nett in order to scoop the pools. This scribe is very lucky top have caught him the week before and sneak past him in the Club Matchplay I can assure you. Great round Matt !! Well done.

The B Grade Medallist and B Grade Scratch with a runners up role in the day’s event was David Solah. David has shot a 72 nett (1 over his handicap) in these tough conditions, proving that his series of improving rounds in the last few months will be sustainable toward a handicap reduction very soon when the conditions are just right.

Refreshment Vouchers for the day after Matt & David took the Club Prize Vouchers, went to Ev Shea (4 over handicap), John Brownhill (8 over handicap) and Ashley Hall (also 8 over handicap) which in itself proves how much tough going the course was playing.
