GOLF: It was the second round of the Captain's
Trophy and players were lulled into believing
that it never rains at Two Wells.
Well, down it came, and kept coming, with as
much casual water and soggy scrapes as I have
ever seen at the course.
Nineteen started, 13 finished and two (no
names, but they started with Adam and Ray)
never got outside the clubrooms.
They were probably the two smartest, and
Good scores were hard to come by and Andrew
Baker's +1 was enough to take out A grade from
'Yogi' and Bobby Hogg.
Ian Clark's -3 was the winner in B grade from
Blue Bowden and Ian Telfer.
Robbie Thompson made a guest appearance
from the Riverland but also struggled with the
conditions for a -3.
Paul Shields defeated Ian Clark in match play to
set up next round against Stuart Grigg.
Next week is Pinehurst for the Applebee/
GOLF: Not sure what the bureau was looking at
last week but the forecast of early rain clearing
lunch-time was turned on its head and the early
starters in the field for the stableford competition
certainly got the better of the conditions, as it
rained all afternoon.
Newcomer Brad Jones, who is yet to put in
enough cards to have a 'top eight,' was the star in
the morning with 42 points.
Although he dropped a shot from the previous
week, he still knocked up a winning score.
I dare say the handicapper will again reduce
his handicap to below a shot a hole. Well played,
The best of the A graders were four shots
behind and it took a three -way countback to
determine that Tony Holding got the better of
Kieren Chappell and Troy Sires, who is making
the most of his holidays to get in some extra
Steven Watson was just two shots behind the
leader and had a convincing six-shot buffer over
the next best B graders.
Greg Jones, Michael Hennessey and Andy
Peters, the latter playing in the rain, all finished
on 34 points.
The C grade was tighter with just a shot
separating Milton Martin at the top from Ian
Gawley (36) and Brenton Anderson (35).
The water hazards at the course are
considerably full and catching their share of
wayward balls, mainly tee shots.
The damage is not limited to the higher
handicappers and a feisty A grader dropped two
in a row into different puddles.
Thursday's competition continues to grow and
30 players teed-up last week.
Wayne Morris continued his love affair with
the course, scoring 42 points, but it wasn't good
enough to win the day with veteran Jimmy Latter
having an amazing 44.
Relative newcomer Ken Hill continued to
improve with a well-compiled 40 points.
The draw for the Dave Forrest 'Top Dog' has
been completed and the first round matches
are as follows: A. Peters v L. Grafton; P. Hill v
R. Thorning; D. Arch v L. Payne; G. Jones v P.
O'Reilley; M. Menzel v D. Trotta; T. Sires v D.
Carson; C. Sutherland v T. Richardson and M.
Martin v C. Hamper.
There promises to be some very interesting
matches with some big-hitting match-ups. This
first round needs to be played prior to July 12.
Next week is the June Monthly Medal stroke
round and we trust all of our members travelling
to Coomealla for the Holden Scramble will have a
great weekend and survive the activities.
