Colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson finally put a good round together to win Saturday’s stroke competition by 9 strokes. Thomo scored 80 off the stick for a net 66, the third best stroke result this season. Runner up was Michael “Tickers” Tickner with an ordinary net 75. The trio of Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke, David “Jack” Webster & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel all scored net 77. Dick Cleland scored an embarrassing net 84 & was only saved from the Mars Bar by the mercurial Bob Taylor who scored net 87.
Andy Phillips took out Thursday’s mulligans with a creditable 19 points. His opponents, however, did not fare so well. Runner up was Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel with a very ordinary 16 points. Kobi Wenzel scored 14, while Andrew Hall scored 12 and Bradtke Stockman took the Mars Bar with 11.
It is worth pointing out the Kobi & Bradtke are still in their sub-teens and they won’t be dwelling at the bottom of the table for long.

Gordon “THe Chook Man” Kakoschke is making a habit of running second. This time it was Chris “Critta” Waters who pipped the Chook Man by one stroke. Critta scored a creditable 40 stableford points to Gordon’s 39. Colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” thomson was third with 37 followed by Matt Opperman & Andy Phillips with 36. Neil Webster & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel finished on 33 while Michael “Tickers” Tickner scored 31 & Kobi Wenzel 27.
In a shock result Dick Cleland took the Mars Bar with 26.
Matt Opperman played a perfectly weighted 9 iron to the 103 metre par 8th hole on Saturday. Matt allowed for the slope of the green landing his ball slightly to the left of the hole allowing it to take two bounces to the right before disappearing into the hole.
While many players consider a hole in one on the 8th to be merely a “chip in” it should be remembered that Matt has aced the 4th hole, one of the more difficult par 3s in the Mid North.
Dick Secombe was too good for his mulligan opponents yet again. Dick scored 19 points to win comfortably from Gordon “The Chook Man” Kakoschke & Dick Cleland who were both on 17. The Chook Man was runner up on a countback. The mercurial Bob Taylor & David “Jack” Webster both scored 15 while it was a close thing for the Mars Bar with Peter Menegerson on 12 just avoiding it from Andrew Hall on 11.
