Saturday and Sunday events were held last weekend to complete two of the four rounds for the club championships for both men and ladies. Saturday’s first round also included the August monthly medal and putting competition and was sponsored by A1 Floorcoverings and Lighting, and we thank them for their sponsorship.
In the men’s medal event, Nathan Stibbard continued to impress returning a score of 69 nett for the win, but only after a countback with Ian Henderson, also with nett 69, but settling for runner up prize. Best gross for the day was from Jason Hatton with a par round of 72. David Burgess needed only 26 putts for the round to win the putting event.
The ladies event was won by Lyn Ludlow with a nett 71 which was four shots clear of runner up, Trish Fittock on nett 75. Racheal Hendry had the best gross score of 90. Lyn Ludlow and Racheal Hendry shared the putting honours with 28 putts for the round.
Sunday’s event was a stroke event and the second round of the championships. The day was kindly sponsored by Chris Fittock Plumbing and Gas and we also thank Chris for his sponsorship.
The men’s event was won by Max Hunter with a nett 66 after returning a score of 85 off the stick on the day. Runner up went to Darryl Boekholt with nett 69. The ladies event went to Sandra Morris who also had a nett 66, runner up to Trish Fittock on nett 68 on the day.
With two rounds of the championships now complete, some favourites are beginning to emerge. In A grade, Jason Hatton has a slender two shot lead over Brendan Barker and the result could go either way. In B grade, Trevor Ludlow has a comfortable lead over the field with Tod Beckett and Ian Harvey closest at the halfway mark. In C grade, Max Hunter leads the field with a narrow one shot advantage. Well in contention in this division are Bruce Green and Ian Henderson.
For the ladies, Division 1 is a close contest with Racheal Hendry and Lyn Ludlow leading the field at the halfway mark. In Division 2, Trish Fittock has a solid lead on the field with Neta Thouard still in with a chance.
There will also be ‘nett’ champions in all grades and divisions and all players are encouraged to continue for all the rounds as handicaps come into the final scores.
Saturday and Sunday’s starting times will be seeded and expected tee off times are on the sheet at the club. There are time spots available for players who did not compete or complete the first two rounds.
