Michael “Tickers” Tickner won Saturday’s stableford on a count back from Andy Phillips, both scoring handicap equaling 38 points. Andy was playing immaculate golf on the back 9 but a stumble at the 17th cost him dearly. Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen was only 1 point back on 37 despite complaining incessantly during the round. Of concern is the long tail of players who were unable to score 30 points or more.

35 – former colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson
A small field of 4 played mulligans today as some of our older players attended the Mid North Veterans Golf in Clare.
Trevor Maxted confirmed his reputation as a sprinter, proving too stong over 9 holes. Trevor scored 23 stablleford points to be well clear of the mercurial Bob Taylor who finished with 19. Dick Cleland scored 17 points while Dick Secomb took the Mars Bar with 14. As we were out of Mars Bars Dick received the complete version of the 2019 Rules of Golf. Anyone with queries about the new rules should consult Dick.
A field of 12 faced the starter on Tuesday with Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel successful with 39 points. Runner up was David “Jack Webster” on a count back from Dick Cleland. Popular local vet Jack Coffee joined members for the round and was awarded the Mars Bar.
39 – Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel
36 – David “Jack” Webster, Dick Cleland
35 – Derek Fletcher
34 – Bob Taylor
32 – Trevor Maxted, Michael “Tickers’ Tickner
31 – Andy Phillips
30 – Colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson
Dick Secomb won Saturday’s stableford with a meager score of 33 points. In fact Dick was the only player to score 30 points or more. I am trying to recall a catastrophic weather event on Saturday but the weather was somewhat benign.
The less said about the others the better so here are the full results:
Dick Cleland & Bill McMahon both scored 19 points in today’s mulligan competition, with Dick being successful on the count back. Mulligan specialist Dick Secomb finished third with 17 points after scrubbing the last hole & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel scored 16 points. Trevor Maxted & David “Jack” Webster tied for last place with 14 points eack & Jack received the Mars Bar on a count back.
Only 4 players braved the inclement weather on Tuesday, but the weather had no affect on Andy Phillips who scored a magnificent 40 stableford points. The handicapper had no hesitation in deducting 1 stroke from Andy’s handicap.
The rest of the field were unable to match Andy’s brilliance with runner up Russell “Gud The Good Guy” Wenzel managing just 35 points, while colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson scored just 31 & Mars Bar recipient Michael “Tickers” Tickner scored 30.
David “Jack” Webster is proving more mercurial than Bob Taylor, oscillating between first and last on a regular basis. Jack managed just 24 stableford points well clear of 2nd last placegetter.
Scores were not brilliant but the steady Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel won with a handicap equaling 38 points. Runner up was Bob Perry who beat colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson on a count back. Both scored 36 points but Bob followed up a front nine of 11 with a back nine of 25. One more hole & Bob would have won.
38 – Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel
36 – Bob Perry (runner up), colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson
Last week’s Mars Bar score would have won Thursday’s mulligan competition, such are the vagaries of small fields in golf.
This week;s winner was Peter Mengerson with 19 stableford points. A count back was required to find that the mercurial Bob Taylor was runner up while a 4-way tie for the Mars Bar required a count back before Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel was announced as the recipient.
19 – Peter Mengerson
18 – Bob Taylor (runner up), Dick Cleland
17 – Andy Phillips
16 – Trevor Mmaxted,Andrew Hall, Dick Secomb, Russell (Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel (Mars Bar)
Trevor Maxted scored 39 stableford points to defeat the unlucky Michael “Tickers” Tickner who finished with 38. David “Jack” Webster had a day best forgotten scoring just 24 points & receiving the Mars Bar.
