Peggy scoops the pool

Five ladies hit off today with Peg Gebhardt scooping the pool. Peg had a superb round of 38 points. Runner up was Glenys Pierce with 31 points, nice to see you back Glenys after a few weeks absent. Judy Reilly had 29pts and bringing up the tail was Di Day and Andrea Rowe both with 28 pts. Nearest the pin on hole 8 and the extra comp was Peg Gebhardt. Birdie Ball went to Glenys Pierce for her great birdie on Hole 8 sinking a monster putt.

Paul Smedley Stuns Tuesday’s Field

Paul Smedley has stunned his opponents with totally unexpected good form scoring 43 stableford points and a gross score of 89. Paul has been haranguing the handicapper to increase his handicap since his arrival back in Burra at the beginning of this month. The handicapper has increased his handicap by 6 strokes since then only be treated in this disdainful manner.

Scores were generally better than usual and some would have been disappointed when Paul returned his card. To make matters worse, the handicapper, Andy Phillips, was runner up with 42 points, a score that would normally win comfortably. Another disappointed player was the ever consistent Pat Hallion on 39.
