Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel & playing partner, colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson were locked in a fierce battle in today’s stableford. Gus reached the turn with 20 points to Thomo’s 19. Both lifted on the back 9 and Thomo had victory in site when Gus performed a freak shot on the 17th to hole out from 50 metres robbing Thomo of a well deserved victory. Gus finished with 41 to Thomo’s 40 Thomo’s performance suggests that while he has difficulty defending a lead he is better suited to the chase. Dick Cleland, who is considered the best finisher in the club was the one to fade today after starting with an eagle on the 1st and reaching the turn in 21 he could only manage 17 on the run home to finish 3rd with 38. Klaus Heymann from Tarcowie Golf Club scored 34 followed by David “Jack” Webster & Kobi Wenzel on 33. The Mars Bar went to Trevor Maxted playing his first round in 12 months & scoring a respectable 31.
