Dick Secomb decided that it was too hot for golf today and spent time on the chainsaw clearing up some fallen trees instead. This left it open for someone else to win the mulligan contest. Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel stepped up scoring an impressive 23 points to win comfortably. Runner up was Trevor Maxted with 19. Andy Phillips scored 18 points and Peterborough visitor David Norman scored 17. Dick Cleland was unable to reproduce his Tuesday form taking the Mars Bar with 14.

Five players defied the heat forecast for Tuesday. Dick Cleland showed he was not going to brood over his first round defeat to Andy Phillips in the Jennison Match P{lay Cup. Putting together a first 9 that looked more like a Dick Secomb mulligan score, Dick reached the half way with 25 points that included a 5 point eagle on the first hole and a 4 point birdie on hole six. Nearest were colourful local sporting identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson, Andy Phillips & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel all on 17. Dick cruised through the back 9 adding another 19 points for a total of 44, which matched Andy who was the best of the rest finishing on 36. Gus finished with 35 & Thomo finished with 34. David “Jack” Webster took the Mars Bar with 30.

 

Spacky Heads Lacklustre Field

There were no standout scores on Saturday with Andrew “Spacky” Spackman winning comfortably with 36 stableford points. A count back was required to find the runner up with David “Jack” Webster successful over Michael “Tickers” Tickner, both scoring 34. There was then a big gap to Dick Secomb on 30. The rest of the field tailed away with Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel 28, colourful local sporting identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson 27 & Kobi Wenzel on 22.

In the Jennison Handicap Match Play matches Andy Phillips was untroubled beating Dick Cleland 4 & 3. The other match scheduled between Spacky & Chris “Critta” Waters did not take place as Critta did not turn up. It is understood the players have arranged an alternative time.

Mulligans a One Horse Race

Dick Secomb demonstrated his superiority over his fellow mulligan players yet again but in an even more emphatic manner. Players had to cope with cold & windy conditions which held scores down, that is with the exception of Dick.

Dick got off to a flyer with 8 points after 2 holes & finished almost as well with 9 points on the last 3 holes finishing with 24 points all together. The best the rest could muster was 19 points by Andy Phillips for a distant 2nd. Dick Cleland was 3rd with 18 which included 21 putts. Bob Taylor scored 17 followed by David “Jack” Webster & colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson 16, Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel 14, Andrew Lenartowicz (Peterborough) 13 & the Mars Bar went to David Norman (Peterborough) 12.
