Playboys Too Strong For Tigers in Grand Final

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, July 31st, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

Manly played their best match of the season with all players contributing none better than Warren Smart with 38 pts.Capt Kirk and Clarrie both fired 37’s whilst for the Tigers Capt John Black with 35 Les Cuka 35 and solid performances from Andrew Kohler and Vince Morris posting 34’s was not enough going down 112-104.Worst player on the ground was the Stranger who was pelted with rubbish as he left the field and immediately announced his retirement and apoligised to his teammates.

Whilst the Dragons stumbled a bit towards the end of the season the Man of the Series ending at the completion of the last round was Kev Pattison just in front of Warren Smart,Kirk Brown,Banga Bainbrigge and Evan Norris.

Thanks to all concerned and those that took it as a bit of fun as it was supposed to be and hope to go around again next year.

Good luck to Manly Sea Eagles and West Tigers in the grand final of the golf league as well. Captain Kirk will to return to form after a rare bad game last week and the waterboy , Greg Pank, surely cannot have 2 good games in a row to get the tigers up. Golf Manly.

Golf League Semi Finals Sat 21/07/18

By Mens Golf on Monday, July 23rd, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

Tigers defeated the Dragons in a major boil over.After leading the Comp nearly all year the Dragons bowed out to the gutsy Tigers in a thrilla.The Teams were locked on 99 all with one Tiger player on the course to come and he needed 32 or better for the Tigers to win.Being a player of suspect ability the Tigers fans were not holding their breath but alas miracles do happen!!Yes Greg Pank with 33 pts put the Tigers in to the Grand Final.Captain of the Dragons Greg Bainbrigge could not believe it and was very emotional afterwards and was seen leaving the ground muttering “Panky 33pts”Panky 33pts” impossible,impossible.Meanwhile Panky was escorted shoulder high from the ground by the Tigers Coach{stranger] and when questioned about it the Stanger replied I’ve always had the utmost respect and new he wouldn’t let the boys down.

In the other Semi Minor Premiers Manly 103 were too good for the Bunnies 91.The Bunnies will surely be looking for a new Captain next year as he failed to turn up for the game.Clarrie Raymer played a starring role for the playboys well supported by Lloyd Pigram.Capt Kirk had a bad game and it looks like these end of season big games could be too much for him

Don’t be surprised to see the Tigers take out the big one next week as big games bring out the best of old Champions and the Tigers have their”Benji and Robbie” who will come ready to play.The Stranger thinks the playboys best is behind them and an upset is looming!!!
