Local uses home course to advantage in veterans competition

On a lovely spring day, 70 players turned up at Penola to find the picturesque country course in lovely condition for this week’s round of SE Veterans 

But apart from the local, scores were pretty average.

Penola’s Lindsay Storer took out First Division with 38 points and a nearest the pin.

Mr Consistency Terry Chant followed with 36 points and Tony MacGregor completed the podium on 33.

Second Division was won by Mike Lyons on a countback from fellow Naracoorte player Rodger Henschke both on 34, with Penola boy Trev Williams on 33.

However, the ball rundown was a high 29 points.

The Ross orchard trophy went to Wayne Dunford and Mark Teakle, while Blue Lake’s Rob Ellis went home with the Scotch.

Naracoorte’s Bob Davies drove off the sixth with a bad pull shot which ended up underground in a burnt out pine stump hole in the centre of their GUR patch.

He looked like a rabbit fetching the ball from 70cm below ground level and the witnesses all rolled around laughing at his antics.

Our next outing is at Beachport on Monday, October 25 followed by Attamurra a fortnight later.
