Men - 8/11/2021

Last Saturday 68 members teed off in the John Dee sponsored Monthly Medal stroke event but not all finished following a downpour mid afternoon. Forty five players returned their card and the winner on the day was Mitch McLennan with an excellent 65 nett, 74 off the stick, which was three shots clear of his nearest opponent. That player was regular Clifton visitor Jay Roberts on 68. The runner up in the Division 1 Medal was Rhys Farrell who finished on nett 70 representing a four over off the stick. Mitch may be a contender for the club championship against big brother Kris if he continues to improve as he has been. The Division 2 winner was Peter Gribbin who shot a 69. That score was also returned by Jamie Ollerton but Jamie is a flexi member therefore not eligible to win the monthly medal and now scores the runner up voucher for that division. The run down saw Jay Roberts win a ball with his 68, Ross Newton and Rod Hansen on 70 while Clayton Frank, Derrick Hewitt, Eddy Raets and Tony Kahler all returned nett 71 to win balls. The Pro Pin on the 13th saw Doug Wilson win 6 balls with a great shot (not that he needs any more balls) as the most prolific ball winner in the club. Dave Speedy was next best winning 4 balls while Slim Eldridge won 3, Chris Hynes 2 and Tony Kahler and Sean and Cody Haynes each won a ball. The NTP on the 5th was won by Peter Farrell , the 7th by Don Warrener, the 9th by Rhys farrell, the 11th by Wayne Wells and the 16th by Ross Newton who is playing well now with a few games under his belt. The event next Saturday is a single stableford. One to mark down in your golfing calendar is the West State School P. and C. 4 ball ambrose event. This was not played last year but was a very big day the year prior and is back on the calendar for Sunday 28th November so mark it down and get a 4 together for the shotgun start at either 7.30am or 11.30am as it promises to be a big day again this year.
