Eight players contested Tuesday’s stableford in near perfect conditions. Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel took the honours by a narrow margin from Chris “Critta” Waters. Gus scored 40 points to Critta’s 39. Dick Cleland was third with 38 followed by David “Robbie” Robinson 37, colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson 36 & David “Jack” Webster 35. There was a gap to Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen on 32 while the Mars Bar went to Phil Arthur who nonetheless scored 30 points.
Perhaps the greatest disappointment was the extreme attack of choking experienced by Thomo. Thomo reached the turn with a massive 23 points but once again he failed to deliver on the homeward 9, scoring a mere 13. Another less sustained case of choking occurred when Critta had a 6 foot putt (1.8288 meters) for a birdie 3 & 5 points on 16 only to leave it 3 feet (0.9144 meters) short.
