Todays event was also the Qualifing Round for the Cock of the walk.96 Starters off again in perfect weather the highlight of the day being Brian Herrings Ace on the 17th.Its taken him almost 70 years to achieve this milestone well done Brian who also happened to take out first place in the 4 Ball Event with his partner Brian Stapleyton with 49 Pts in a countback from Dennis Rutherford and Geoff Rankin.The Draw for “Cock of the Walk is now on the notice Board.
Chris Pender and Lachlan PHillips looked down and out after 6 holes but birdies on the 7th and 8th by “Lachie” and another 4 pointer on the way home was good enough for them to qualify in the top 16.Whilst on birdies Phil Nicolaides had 4 of them on Saturday ,it certainly helped the cause because his partner “Smithy” was doing it a bit tough but they also made the cut and will be hard to beat.
Kirk Brown is in sensational form at the moment he posted the best score of the day with 42 pts and has been in the top 5 for the last 4 weeks.He must be rattling up plenty of points in the consistency award.
One player who must be giving “The Stewards” some cause for concern is Tristan Balazic who shot a par round 2 weeks ago but on his next outing could only manage 21 pts to finish last in a field of 96!!If he was a racehorse gelding could be the answer to keep his mind on the job!!
4 BBB First Place Brian Herring and Brian Stapylton 49 pts
