Dick Cleland defeated Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel on a count back to win the men’s mid-week stableford. Both players scored 36 points but Dick was stronger on the homeward 9. The mercurial Bob Taylor bounced back from Saturday’s disappointing form to finish 3rd with 34 while David “Jack” Webster scored 33. The rest of the field failed to reach 30 points. Gordon “The Chook Man” kakoschke managed just 28 despite the acting handicapper generously giving him an extra stoke. Neil Webster scored 25, while Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen returning from injury scored 23. Eddie’s score did not do him credit as there were glimpses of the Flying Dutchman of old. The Mars Bar went to Brett Wallis who returned after a long absence and he will benefit from the outing. Brett scored 18.
Dick Cleland has reduced his playing handicap at Burra to 13 while Jack Webster has gone out 1 stroke to 16.
