Men - 21/9/2021

Last Saturday Warwick Golf Club members played in a single stableford event and 49 players contested which was a reasonably good field considering the 36 hole event on the Sunday. The winner with an excellent score was the somewhat out of form prior to this day Charlie Morrison. Great comeback Charlie!! He scored 41 points to win by a couple of shots from runner up Phil McEvoy. Also on 39 points was Derrick Hewitt with Peter Balfour on 38, Anthony Seidl who is really gaining some consistency now with good scores on 37, Sam McLennan on 36 gaining bragging rights over dad Scott on 35. The Pro Pin on 13 saw Ross Bell win 5 balls, Keith Clarke 4 balls, Anthony Seidl 3 balls and Wayne Watt 2 balls. The NTP on 5 went to Eddie Kemp with Slim Eldridge winning the 7th, Darrell Bain the 9th, Scott McLennan on the 11th and Brodie Quirk after a few quiet weeks the 16th. The Sunday 36 hole foursome championships was a hotly contested event. After the first 18 holes there were 4 pairs all tied on 77. Shane Reid and Rhys Farrell, Shane Scotney and Eamon Rooney, Tim Sutton and Daniel Bowles and Kris and Sam McLennan all returned 77 gross setting up an excellent afternoon. Kris and Sam looked to have the win bottles up until tree trouble on the 17th hole. Rhys and Shane had been a half dozen behind a few holes earlier but got it back to 1 shot playing the 18th or 36th as it was. Rhys had a very tricky sloping 2 metre put to tie the event but it just slid by the hole and Sam and Kris prevailed. Only 1 shot behind Rhys and Shane were Tim and Daniel on 78. In the Coe Cup 36 hole net championship it was also extremely close at half way with Eamon and Shane just a shot in front of Tim and Daniel and also Darrell Bain and new member Geoff Lee while Terry Bennett and Tony Kahler were only 2 1/2 shots out of the lead as well. At the end of the day Tim and Daniel prevailed by a shot from Eamon and Shane. Great contests all round in both events and congratulations to all winners. Shane and Eamon were ruing their 10 on the 2nd hole in the afternoon which was very costly in both events but they couldn't even win that situation with another pair who shall remain nameless (except they were both Garys) managed an 11. As usual, there were a lot of stories doing the rounds after the day but in the end a good time was had by all.
