Men - 25/7/2022

There was a smaller field at the course last Saturday for the King Street Mechanical single stableford event. This was due mainly to the horrible weather conditions and of course the Jumpers and Jazz festivities. The poor conditions didn't deter Alan Matthews who was the winner on the day with 37 points. Al has been playing well of late and recently partnered Don Stewart in the 4BBB handicap matchplay where they qualified and progressed to the semi-final only losing that on the 20th hole. Runner up in the stableford was Kris McLennan who returned 36 points representing a 2 under off the stick which was excellent golf in the windy conditions. Kris won the runner up prize on a countback from Bruce Howells and Michael Hoskin both of whom were on 36. Clayton Frank and James Bradshaw both returned 35 points to complete the ball run down. The NTP shots went to Josh Jensen on the 5th, Evan Pfeffer on the 7th and also the 11th while Dave Speedy won the 9th and Jay Roberts won the 16th. The pro pin on the 13th saw Kris McLennan win 4 balls, Al Matthews 3, Dave Speedy 2 while Wayne Walters won the last ball there. Wayne has recently returned to golf after a break and has been steadily returning to the good form that we know he has. Next Saturday BNW Accountants provide the trophy for a single stableford while on Sunday we have the Mixed Foursome Championships over 36 holes. This is a classic honourboard event and always is an interesting competition so get your pairs down on the timesheet for what should be another classic mixed foursome. The Warwick Open two day event is coming up on the 13th and 14th August so that too is another big day to look forward to so that time sheet is likely to fill quickly. The most recent honourboard event that is being conducted ap present is the 4BBB handicap matchplay event and the finalists have emerged. Rhys Farrell and Michael Watt will play Daniel Bowles and Matt Penn in the final over 36 holes. Farrell and Watt gained their spot with a hard fought win over Al Matthews and Don Stewart on the 20th hole aafter being 1 down playing the 18th. Matt Penn and Daniel Bowles had a much easier path with a good 5 and 3 win over Garry Adcock and Tony Kahler in their semi final with Daniel Bowles playing a great match in that game with a number of birdies so it should be a great match. Good luck to all players.
