Helen Spencer Wins Harden Ladies Open

After decades of dominance, Young’s Helen Spencer has again shown her dominance around the Harden Links at the 2021 Kruger Harden Open, as presented and supported by the Harden Country Club and the GO Kruger Trust.

Whilst the course was in immaculate condition and fought back hard, Helen brought forward a very respectable 88 off the stick to defeat Harden’s own long time Champion, Jeanette Elliott by 2 strokes. In Division 2, Barb Beveridge (another very familiar with the Course and ex local) has comfortably accounted for her rivals with a 7 shot win over runner up Cecile Rhodes from Young.

In the Handicap/Nett Divisions and Stableford category the following Ladies saluted the judges;

Nett Div 1 Winner – Michelle Sykes, Runner Up Nora Saffioti
Nett Div 2 Winner Julie Jenkins, Runner Up Libby Plumley

Stableford Div 1 – Wendy Tuckermand
Stableford Div 2 – Penny Greaves

Captain Jeanette thanked all of those who travelled to make the day a memorable one.

Parker & Manwaring – Round 1 4BBB Leaders

Round 1 of the 4BBB Championships was played on the weekend and there is only a struck match between the 3 top place getters after the first day was complete.

Proving to be too strong on the day were unlikely combination of Bernie Parker and Herb Manwaring. These two wily golfers certainly knew how to extract what they could from a tough track with a handsome 41 points. 2 points back on 39 points and rueing some missed chances were Tam Kennedy and Craig Filmer on 39 points, whilst Christopher Longbottom and Timothy Harvey had 38 points.

Proving the difference was the Individual Stableford played in conjunction. This revealed some very interesting data where nobody played to their handicap on the day. Winner of this event and 2 above handicap was Tam Kennedy on 34 points on a countback from Bernie Parker also on 34. Brody Schofield and Herb Manwaring were 2 points further back on 32.

All very interesting with the last round to play this Saturday. I would reckon that if someone shoots well to their handicap, some silverware could be had.

This Week

Round 2 of the 4BBB Championships and/or an individual stableford for all in conjunction.

Don’t forget to book in to the field.
