Dick Cleland won Tuesday’s stableford after collecting the Mars Bar on Saturday. Dick scored 37 points to beat Chris “Critta” Waters on a count back.
The true story is that Critta lost the battle rather than Dick won it. The pair played in the same group and Critta had a 4 point lead after 9 holes and had extended his lead until the 14th, his nemesis hole.
Despite much sage advice on the way to play this hole with out of bounds on each side, Critta has resisted the advice and has continued to blaze away with his driver off the tee with consistently poor results and Tuesday was no exception. Critta drove out of bounds as he usually does and scored 0 points to Dick’s 3.
Shaken by this disappointment Critta only managed 1 point on 15 to Dick’s 4 giving up the lead. Critta steadied and managed to claw back 2 points to tie the scores in the end, but the count back delivered the win to his opponent.
At the other end of the field David “Jack” Webster had a rough day.
