Peter Weiss and Pat Hallion turned up the heat on the back 9 in Saturday’s par event. At the half way mark Pat was 1 up and Peter was square. Pat turned in a dazzling performance on the homeward nine scoring 3 up to finish 4 up overall. Peter, however, went one better scoring 4 up on the back 9 to draw level and take the day on a count back.
Kobi Wenzel had an uncharacteristic bad day to take the Mars Bar.
Boh Wall was too strong for his opponents on Tuesday carding 35 stableford points to beat runner up, Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel by 2 strokes. Richard “Pickles” Matz showed a concerning fall off in form sharing the Mars Bar with Neil Webster. Pickles’ fans will be hoping that this loss of form is temporary.
David “Jack” Webster had an outstanding round on Saturday scoring 43 stableford points in the first round of summer golf. Richard “Pickles” Matz was runner up with 41. Pickles reached the turn with 25 and had visions of a 50 point round. It wasn’t to be as Pickles tightened up (aka choked) on the back 9 scoring just 16 points, a difference of a stroke a hole. Scores were generally up on recent efforts with even the Mars Bar recipient, Bevan Ladhams, scoring 28 points.
Chris “Critta” Waters gave a master class in controlling the wind on Tuesday scoring 38 stableford points. The next best was a mediocre 32 points by Mark “Mouldy” Millward & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel with one of them runner up on a count back. Bob Taylor got his 2nd Mars Bar in a row.
