Last week saw the course the winner, this week saw the golfers revenge in the Johnson Procter Surveyors monthly medal. Needing at least a net 69 to win a ball, Alan Tonacia must have thought Christmas came early. Playing of a handicap of 9 (not any more) he shot an incredible 68 , 3 under par, net 59 to easily win the day. Dennis Rutherford with a net 63 walking off the 18th must have thought he would win the day. Better luck next time Dennis.

7th September Hotondo Homes Single Stableford

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, September 11th, 2019 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

59 fool hardy golfers who had nothing else to do last Saturday took on the wind. At the end of the day the wind won with noone playing to their handicap. Matthew Parker the closest with 35 and Matthew Smith, Chris Witt 34.

A certain club captain was heard complaining in the pro shop , nothing unusual about this, about the wind and not wanting to pay $1.00 for the golden shot, short arms long pockets. He walks onto the 6th still complaining and saving a $1.00, proceeded to put his tee shot on the green and would have won him the golden shot. Bad luck Brian.

A reminder that if you dont complete your round (NCR) you don’t scan your card and you need to tell the staff in the pro shop that you have withdrawn. This is ensure that your correct score is recorded (NCR)

With the weather causing havoc last week cancelling the second round of our championship, this years championships were only played over 2 rounds which resulted in close finishes in both scratch and net results.

A Grade

Leading  scratch after the first round , Brett Bishop , with a round of  73 to finish on 145 won by 5 shots from Troy Monie 151.

Robert Kelly after leading the net after the first round with 68 was over taken by Lloyd Pigram with rounds of 70 and 71 to edge out Robert on a count back.

B Grade

The top 4 players in B Grade must have been left wondering what happened as they all managed to choke with none of them featuring in the top 2 in both stroke or net.

Drago Stith came from 4 shots back to win the scratch with rounds of 88 and 82, 170 to win from Phil Nicolaides, who was  placed 12th after round 1, with 172.

Net winner to Les Cuka  on a count back from Matthew Parker both with 145.

C Grade

Saw the closest finish in all grades which saw Garry Dwyer with final round 95 to go with his 90 in the first round, 185, hang by 1 shot from 3 other players. Chris Witt with a final round 91 claimed 2nd on a count back.

Net winner saw Bob Biesheuvel with a final round of 66, total 142, the best score of  the day, come from 5 shots back to edge out the first round leader Chris Hoffman on a count back.

Congratulations to all winners and runners up.

Hopefully next year the weather will be kinder to us.
