Colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson scored an impressive 44 points to win yesterday’s Chemmart Stableford Challenge Round 6. Thomo’s score was due entirely to an excellent even par front 9 of 25 points. Thomo appears to have placed unnecessary pressure on himself on the back 9 with delusions of a course record. Andy Phillips was runner up with a solid 40 points with an 18/22 split for a strong back 9 taking 3 points from Thomo’s early lead. Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel was third but after a good start like Thomo he faded on the back 9 scoring 37 (20/17). Michael Tickner scored 35 (18/17) followed by Eddie “The Flying Dutchman with 33 (16/17) & David “Robbie” Robinson 32 (15/17). Kobi Wenzel posted an improved 28 points with a very strong back 9 of 17. The Mars Bar went to Dick Cleland who also managed 2 nearest the pins. Dick blamed his score of 26 (13/13) on bad patting. Putting is Golf! So bad putting is bad golf. It’s about time this was pointed out to Dick
