Play for the Peirce Trophy, a mixed 4BBB stableford, was the main event last Saturday at Stanthorpe. Unfortunately, Bob Peirce and his wife were not able to travel down from Toowoomba, but we do thank him again for sponsoring this mixed event.
With a good number of teams in the field, it was expected that a close contest would be in order. However, the team of greenkeeper, Bill Pyne, and his partner, Kay Webb, took early control of the game and never relented. Between them, they recorded 46 points to be easy winners. Bill was the mainstay of the team, starting off with a pair of pars and continued to score well through the match. Kay added to the score with a birdie for 4 points and usual pars, 3 points per hole.
The rest of the field couldn’t match the winners efforts and two teams tied for runner up. Both on 41 points, the countback went to Mark and Racheal Hendry over Keith and Helen Jones who serrled for a run down.
For the rest of the field without partners, a single stableford was played, sponsored by David , Stephen ans Warren of Favero Motors. Thanks to Stephen for the sponsorship and presenting the prizes to the winners.
For quite some time, it looked like 36 points might be a good winning score. Not until Nathan Stibbard returned with a card of 37 points was a winner found. A front nine of 19 points which included a birdie at the 6th and back in 18 points for his total and the win.
Runner up was a visitor from Tasmania, Ian Smith who returned a score of 36 points for the day, two nines of 18 points each. A much better effort from Ian this time, the previous time he played at the course he was presented with the encouragement award.
In the run down, a ball each to Paul Mills and Lyle Bryant who held out the rest of the field with 35 points.
