Telfer in top form as hole-in-one scored

Afield of 68 played the Mount Gambier course in perfect weather for the South East Veteran Golf competition.

A highlight was Murray Telfer’s hole in one on the 8th hole.

Telfer, 82, had been having a very ordinary day with his cart breaking down on the 7th, and then after playing the favourite 8 iron, he bent down to get his tee, and so missed seeing the ball going in.

However, his group soon let him know! Telfer is familiar with the course being a member from 1962-68, Club Champion in 1967, and SE Champion in the same year.

Another player, the long hitting left hander, Keith Couzner went out in 25 points, and it looked like the magical 50 points was in sight, but had too much lunch, and came home in 12.

It was enough however to win Second Division by two from Bob Tonkin and Alan Webster with 35.

Steven Coe’s 39 took out First Division from Rob Perryman and Stan Stroyanoff who had 38.

Nearest the pins were Telfer and Rob Perryman, the ball rundown was to 31, the Ross Orchard prize went to Alan Chalk and David Seymour, in form at the moment.

Bill Mullan walked away with the Scotch.

The next meeting will be at Blue Lake on November 21, followed by Port Mac on December 5 and closing the year out on December 12 at Millicent.
