TAMWORTH VETERANS GOLF COMPETITION – 17th MAY 2019.
It was an overcast morning, with even a “few” drops of rain and I emphasize the few, but it didn’t deter 43 of our members getting out and playing the back nine. Scoring was exceptional, particularly for our place getters. First place had to be decided on a count back, with two players scoring 23pts. The eventual winner was Lee Charlesworth from Andrew Frost in second place. Lee chose a Pro Shop Voucher as his prize. Third place then went Phil Heffernan on 22pts. The ball list then went down a further 15places, with Colin Moore scoring 21pts. Next with 20pts were John Robinson & Jeffrey Parker. Following on 19pts came Bill Hely, Glen Crosby, Duncan Butler & Bill O’Brien. There was just one player scoring 18pts being Peter Izod. We then had a few players scoring 17pts, who were, Phil Lyon, Barrie Young, Max Henry & Peter Coombes. Count backs were then required for the last balls to those scoring 16pts and the successful members were Gordon Way, John Clery & David Easterman.
Nearest the Pin on the 16th hole was won by John Clery.
Golf has never been considered as an easy game, particularly when you get to our age, but you don’t need someone (like your playing partner) making it harder than it actually is. So our Play of the Day goes to Dick S with the help (or should that be (hindrance) of his partner Phill H. On the par 3, 16th hole. The story goes that Dick S had a 3, as in par, but had to count 4 !!!! as a result of a dreaded “air swing”. The reason given for the “air swing” is that Phil H started talking as he has been known to do, thus ruining the concentration of Dick S on his back swing. Therefore it is only fair that the Play of the Day is a joint award this week, of ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!
This coming Friday we have an early start for our Competition, being 7.00am for a 7.15am tee off with a SHOTGUN START on the front nine. The reason for this early start, is to accommodate the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, Charity Golf Day, which will hit off at 10.00am, so please make sure all hired golf carts are back at the Pro Shop with time to spare.
I then look forward to seeing you on the course and then in the Club for the presentations, which will take place as soon as possible after we finish our game.
