Shock: Pickles Gets Mars Bar

In a dramatic change of form Richard “Pickles” Matz scored a miserable 16 points in today’s stableford. Pickles has been the most successful player in the club in recent months and was unable to explain this dramatic change of fortune. His fans will be hoping that this is just a one off and that Pickles bounces back on Saturday. Today’s winner was Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel with 39 points, a fine effort in extremely windy conditions. Runner up was Pat “The Rat” Hallion who beat Dick Cleland on a count back, both scoring 35. Both were effected by the unfairness of trees as a hazard in golf although Dick was affected more than Pat.

Critta Overwhelms Saturday’s Field

Critta’s putting was “on song”

Chris “Critta” Waters blew the field away scoring 39 stableford points. Peter Weiss was an embarrassing 6 points behind on 33. What made Critta’s performance all the more impressive was that that the strength of his gave, driving from the tee was well below his best demonstrating the improvement of his game overall. The handicapper was so impressed that he reduced Critta’s handicap by one stroke.

There was a dead heat for the Mars Bar between Bop Perry & Mark “Mouldy” Millward with Mouldy picking it up. The may explain Bob Perry’s rush to get away before the presentations.

Kobi Wenzel had an uncharacteristic bad day to take the Mars Bar.
