Only 9 players played in the 2nd round of the Championships yesterday. Some players seem dispirited by poor form, others are settling back to normal after a busy start to May in Burra and others are recovering from injury. There are still 2 rounds to play before the match play begins and anyone who has yet to play can still qualify. We believe that Chris “Critta” Waters was too upset after his showing on Tuesday to play but we all know how quickly our form can change in golf. Of particular concern is the fitness of popular colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson and whether he can be fit enough to play by June 16.
Round of the day was had by Dick Cleland who scored a gross 86 catapulting himself to the top of the A Grade leader board with Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel. Defending Champion Matt Opperman showed that he is going to be in the mix again this year with an 87 gross. Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke leads B grade after 2 rounds while Bob Taylor holds his lead in C Grade.
Dick Cleland also took out the handicap event of the day with a net 75. Runner up was Neil Webster who beat Michael “Tickers” Tickner on a count back, both scoring net 75. Other scores were Matt Opperman 77, Gus The Good Guy 78, Andy Phillips 79, The Chook Man 80, Bob Taylor 83 & the Mars Bar went to Kobi Wenzel with a net 86.
