Dick Cleland & Tommo Change Roles

On Saturday colourful local identity Philip “Tommo” Thomson was Terrific & Dick Cleland was woeful, & today it was the other way around. Dick came from behind with 2 holes to play while fellow competitor Bob Taylor who was leading at the time choked on the last 2 holes scoring 1 point to Dick’s 6. Tommo was never in the hunt.

Tommo is Terrific

Colourful local identity, Philip “Tommo” Thomson scored a huge win on Saturday. Tommo & fellow competitor David “Jack” Webster both scored 22 stableford points on the front 9 to set up a challenging battle on the back 9. Under such conditions Tommo has reputation for fading but this time it was Jack who blinked. Tommo scored another 22 on the back 9 to Jack’s 17 to finish a clear winner. Dick Cleland’s return to form was short lived with him taking the Mars Bar.

Tommo Survives Late Fade to win Saturday’s Par

Phillip “Tommo” Thomson was 7 up in Saturday’s par round after 15 holes and seemed set for a sensational score. Unfortunately an attack of nerves took hold and Phillip lost the next 2 holes. A nervous 4 foot put was holed for a half on the 18th which left Tommo with a 1 hole lead over playing partner Pat Hallion. Despite playing well Dick Cleland took the Mars Bar after suffering a great deal of jolly bad luck.

Tuesday Ladies Stableford

15th October, 2019

Only a countback could separate Andrea Rowe & Peg Gebhardt this week. Both came in with an impressive 35 stableford points. Andrea won the comp on countback with a 20 point back nine.

Other Scores were Sharyn Roberts 31 points & Judy Reilly 28 points. The extra comp was most 2 pointers and Andrea also got the chocolates in that with 9.

Peg Gebhardt won the nearest to the pin on Hole 8, a great shot considering she had a close encounter with a ‘Slithering Sam’ only a few holes earlier and should have been a bit shaky!!

Andy Phillips in Rare Form

Andy Phillips surprised everyone, including himself, with a blistering net 65 in today’s stroke round. Andy was 7 strokes clear of joint runners up, Trevor Maxted & Peter Weiss on net 72. Given the excellent conditions, the remaining scores were disappointing. Dick Cleland posted the worst score collecting the Mars Bar.
