A double bogey on the difficult par four fourth hole was enough to spark Scott Sawyer into bringing some electricity into his game with a closing 37 off the stick over the back nine worth 22 points for the 12 handicapper.
Despite that jolt Sawyer still had enough pars over the front nine to amass 19 points and he showed his A grade game with a par, par birdie start to the inward nine. Also closing with a 37 and 20 points was all round sportsman Bruce Morale.
Morale and his daughter Jorja fed off each other’s great game with Jorja claiming the win in the Ladies competition and Bruce almost doing the same in the men’s. He mirrored each of his nines with a birdie and three bogeys, 37 off the stick and 20 points each to showcase his consistency.
Morale was a clear winner in A grade by four points with Aaron O’Donnell (10) and Brett Perryman (7) tied on 36. Both players had a birdie each over the back nine and also double bogeyed a hole each but O’Donnell got the nod with his 19 points compared to Perryman’s 16.
In B grade it was a three-way tie with Fred Knight (17), David Gould (15) and Ben Papps all coming in with 38 points. Knight birdied the 11th on his way to 22 points to be declared the winner and Gould claimed second with 20.
Papps could have had the win all to himself after birdies on the 13th and 15th but he negated them with 2 scrubs as well to finish with 19 points.
Frank Pinneri’s 40 points equalled Morale’s to take out the C grade win. Pinneri managed to scrub the 7th for no points but still managed to walk off the front nine with 21 points. His back nine was highlighted by an impressive par on the roadside 13th hole. Richard Dean (26) with 38 points and Cameron Heness (31) with 36 points filled the minor grade placings.
David “Johno” Johnston leads the list of ball winners with 37 points followed by Robert Martland, Roger Gale (36), Graham Burke, Steve Jelly, Jay Ilsley (birdies on the 7th, 17th and 18th), Tim Bates, Jamie Dunn 35 and Stephen Von Duve on 34.
