Seventy players lined up for the John Dee monthly Medal at the Warwick Golf course last Saturday. The clear winner on the day was Adam Nielsen who shot an excellent 64 nett to win by three shots from Mal Galloway and Brendan Landrigan both of whom are in an excellent purple patch of form.
Adam won the "B" grade division and qualify's for the Medal of Medals while Mal Galloway won the "A" division with his 67 on a countback from Brendan. Relatively new player Grant Lambley was runner up in the "B" division with a handy 68 nett.
The ball run down saw Sean Haynes, Peter Farrell, Andrew Collins and Bert Bownds all on 69, Adam Hart, Slim Eldridge, Rick Mills and Don Stewart all on 70.
The pin shots are back and Eddie Kemp collected the 5th, Josh Hynes the 7th, Jo Levick the 9th while Adam Nielsen certainly aided his winning score by collecting both the 11th and 16th pins.
The pro pin on 13 saw Kris McLennan win 4 balls, Rick Mills 3, Darrell Bain and Wayne Wells 2 each and Neville Heard and Peter Hynes one each.
The draw for the matchplay championships has been done and is posted in the clubhouse along with the date that each round has to be played by so nominated players should note that.
Next Saturday a single stableford is scheduled while another noteworthy event upcoming is the men's foursome championships to be played on the 20th September.
Also members and social players alike should note a special date on the 27th September when the Greenkeepers Day will be a 2 ball ambrose with proceeds for the day going to Nathan Bell who has served us all so well in the clubhouse for years now before becoming ill and it is hoped that a big crowd turn out for that fundraiser to support a great guy in Nathan.
