Back nine blit 
leads to victory

Players from either end of the handicap range showed they could finish in the top placings last Wednesday at Attamurra.

Playing in perfect weather on the immaculate course, long hitter Helen McIntyre blitzed the back nine finishing with 23 points including a birdie on the 18th to return to the clubhouse with 41 points.

Jane Lamont played two consistent nines with a 21/20 split and was unlucky to take the runner up prize on a countback.

The consistent Di O’Donnell completed the podium with 39 points.

The Handicap Match Play semi-finals were played last Wednesday.

Bev Pedlar was three down after nine holes, but rallied and gradually crept back to defeat Jennifer Van Rijthoven on the 18th hole two up.

The other final match between Karen Forster and Jan Shanahan was relatively close with Forster being the victor 4/2.

The Handicap Match play final, sponsored by Anne Schrapel will be played on Wednesday between Karen Forster and Bev Pedlar.

Forster’s long hitting and Pedlar’s accuracy around the greens should make it an interesting spectacle.

A field of 17 ladies participate in a par round on Saturday and Leanne Hunt blitzed the field to finish eight up.

Hunt, despite having two wipes on the front nine, produced four pars to be two up after nine holes, but really shone adding another six up including parring the last three holes.

Runner up on a countback was Carol Smith with two up with the back nine her strong half.
