Shoalhaven Medical Imaging Single Stableford.

After last weeks washout 82 starters greeted the barrier and it was a day of good scoring with 38 or better needed to win a ball.Had the pleasure of playing with Helicopter Mechanic Rob Marshall playing off 22 recorded 43 pts and when he has more time to play will be down much lower than that.Hit to 220 cms off the tee on the 15th but missed his Eagle putt.He managed to hold off Phillip Smith on a countback with the old veteran Bernie Shipp a further 1pt back in 3rd spot.
Phillip Whistler won B grade on a countback from “Scout” Pender with 43 pts with another ‘Old Timer”Les Cuka a pt further back in 3rd spot.
“Bulldog”Herring is in a purple patch lately took out A grade also with 43 pts.Paul harris and Leigh Ardler fought out the minors with Paul on a countback with 40pts.

Drive and pitch on the 9th A grade went to “The King of Clean” Sachmo. Fred Curbishley won B grade on the 4th with Richard Marshall taking C grade on the 15th.

Nearest the Pin 6th Doug Reid and for all those self doubters “Miracles do happen”Greg Pank on the 14th.Apparently from all reports it came off the fence hit a cart wheel and finished on the green!!!

Last week was Ham Day and unfortunately a wash out.This could not be re scheduled due to the fact that the Hams were stored in the Butchers Cool Room and needed to be cleared for Xmas.A draw was done in the pro Shop and winners were notified.Some people were disappointed.However there were 75 names on the sheet so there wouldn’t have been too many.

Congratulations to Brad Henderson on winning the B Grade Champion of Champions at the Highlands Golf course recently.This was for the Illawarra Area a great result.Our A Grade Champ Troy Monnie was going along very nicely and nearly “slam dunked the 15th for an eagle.However the ball after hitting the pin finished a distance from the pin.I wont go any further only to say if his name was Jan !!!!.I let him fill you in on the rest of the sorry tale.

While on “slam dunking”I was playing with our Captain once upon a time and he did one.However it was for an 8.

Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to all our members and if making a new years resolution please try to make it a realistic one.Mine is to be “Kinder” to Panky next year I will do my best that’s all you can do but then again!!!!
