Last Wednesday saw one of the best fields ever face the starter and you had to be good to get among the prize winners. Don Plummer had 41 points to take first place from John (The Cocky Hater) Holman, 40 and Darrell Carson 39 after a countback with Gary Dowdell.
Richard Cannon won the NTP on the 15th. The course desperately needs rain and a lot of it but the dry conditions do tend to bring out some good scores.
Suzie Spencer won her first ever competition last Thursday with 37 points. Congratulations Suzie it is great to record your first of many wins going forward. Ian Duncan was next best with 35 and Bronnie Wilson took the minor placing with 34. Michael Petrov won the NTP on the 15th.
I notice that John Holman played with Bob Brown and Mike Petrov on Thursday and in the group of three there was one left handed player (Bob Brown) and one right handed (John Holman) and Mike Petrov who cannot make up his mind if he is right or left handed, he stand like a right handed player but holds the club like a leftie. Maybe he will work it out one day.
The third round of the championships saw Neil Free fire a nett 64 to narrowly beat Shane Barraclough 65 who counted Corey Rose out of second spot. Mary Dufty was a clear winner in the nett section with 66 nett from Courteney Dade 71 after a countback with Carol Shields.
NTP winners were, RAB 3rd Don Plummer, NAB 6th Peter Richardson, 9th Robbie Porter, 11th Josh Clark, Rob Brown Denture Clinic 15th Darrell Carson and Bridges Finance 17th John Holman.
