Sporters - 21/12/2020

Last Wednesday, Sporters had a strong field of 65 starters for the Hawker Road Function Centre trophy for December. Our commiserations to 2 Names who had to retire hurt after 9 holes with a bad case of digital expiration! Winner on the day was the ever-consistent Evan Pfeffer, out early as always, with an excellent score of 43 points. Modesty prevents too much comment about the runner-up whose initials are Terry Bennett, with 42 points, after his best round for two years. Unfortunately Mr Golflink immediately bombed Terry with a two stroke handicap drop!! Ball rundown: Darrell Bain 41, Mick Payne 40, Robin Farrell 39, Charlie Morrison 38 Turtle Wallace/leigh Nisbet/Neil Carney/Doug Wilson all on 37 points. NTP’s: Rhys Farrell on 5th, Tegan’s Dad on 7th, Adam hart on 9th, Milo on 16th. Pro pin on 11th – Turtle Wallace 4 balls, Tony Kahler 3 balls, Darrell Bain 1. Pro pin on 13th – Phil the Coach 3, Mal Galloway 2 and Ross Kingston 1. This Wednesday 23/12/20, we play in the Warwick Hotel trophy, and the following week in the Bells Butchery trophy. And finally, our thought for the Christmas week; ‘Christmas is the time you buy this year’s gifts with next year’s money!’’..anon. Enjoy your golf and Christmas with family and friends ( and follow us on Facebook at Sporters Golf Club!)
