Burra Golfers Begin to Show Form

"Mad" Max Wiech
“Mad” Max Wiech

Or at least some of them!

In freezing conditions “Mad” Max Wiech scored at commendable 40 stableford points. This score certainly impressed the handicapper who rewarded Max with a handicap reduction of 1 stroke down to 18. Runner up was Chris “Critta” Waters with a solid 37 points. Next was colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson with a consistent 36. Thomo has been around the 35 to 36 mark for a while now that he has returned to his natural handicap and is sure to break out for a win soon.

Sadly things fall away after this with with Brett Wallis 33, Mark “Mouldy” Millward 32, Russell “Gus The Good Guy” & alas Phil Arthur on 27.

Phil was saved from the Mars Bar by the presence of 10 year old Kobi Wenzl who completed his first full round of golf with an excellent starting score of 143 off the stick. Your writer can recall going around the West Course at Grange at the age of 13 in 180+ strokes. At Kobi’s age you don’t care what the reason is for getting a Mars Bar. Kobi’s stableford score was 14. At that age improvement happens at an accelerated pace. Well done!
