Colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson was off to a cracking start in today’s stableford reaching the turn with 22 points well clear of his rivals. Unfortunately, as is too often the case, Thomo was unable to sustain his form over the back 9 adding only 14 points to his score. Thomo’s playing partner, Andy Phillips reached the turn in 17 but burst into form on the back 9 with 22 including 10 on the last 3 holes to claim first prize with 39 points. Runner up was the mercurial Bob Taylor with 37, followed by Chris “Critta” Waters & Thomo on 36 & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel on 32. Dick Cleland finished with 29 after managing to accumulate 4 penalty strokes. Dick was penalised 2 strokes on the first hole for carrying more than 14 clubs. Fortunately this was discovered on that hole thus avoiding a similar penalty on the second hole. On the 12 hole Dick was penalised 1 stroke for causing his ball to move while at rest & another stroke for an unplayable lie. Despite this the Mars Bar went to David “Jack” Webster who had a very ordinary day scoring just 23.
