In one of the best rounds for some time David “Jack” Webster scored 49 stableford points on Tuesday. Jack had a short put on the last hole for 50 points but left the put hanging on the rim of the cup. Nonetheless 49 points is quite a good effort. Runner up was Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel with 42 points, a score that would win on most days.
Mulligan specialist Dick Secomb was too good once again despite the excellent scores by other players. Only 5 players fronted in beautiful conditions for golf and a mark of the good scores was the Mars Bar going to David “Jack” Webster with 19 points.
22 – Dick Secomb
20 – Michael “Tickkers” Tickner (runner up on count back), Sam Cleland, Dick Cleland
