Last Thursday’s event at the Pink Lake Golf Club was the BE Stearne stableford which attracted a talented crowd of golfers.
The day was a balmy 20 degrees, with a light northerly wind.
Paddy Young revelled in the conditions carding a great 38 points to take out first place.
The coaching Paddy received in his youth was evident with father Kevin remarking “that’s my boy” while Paddy accepted his trophy.
Only a single stroke behind was Rowey with a great score of 37 points.
Steve Poyner accepted second prize on behalf of Rowey.
At the other end of the talented field, vying for the Tommy Wyndich prize, was Phil Humbles and Kevin Young.
It was great to see Phil getting his swing back after an extended forced rest from golf.
A spin-off determined Kevin to be Tommy Wyndich.
Cleary the $150 swing has failed him, or he failed to be properly supported by his partner.
Best veteran (a youngish veteran) was Mal Scrimgeour with a solid 36 points.
Nearest to the pins on the par threes went to Ray, Brad, Ken and Reno.
Ken and Reno also had the longest drive and longest putt on number nine.
Only one golfer recorded a birdy on a par three - that was Jim Gray on number four.
Closest to the tap box, the ideal tee shot on that particular hole, went to Steve Poyner, who is making it a habit.
This Thursday’s event is the Monthly Mug – participants should get in early while visitors are welcome.
