Putts "n" Pars

Putt’s ‘n’ Pars from Grafton Golf Club


Just two more rounds remain in the Bendigo Bank Consistency Cup, those remaining rounds to be held on the next two Saturdays.  In the A grade division John Dahl has increased his lead, his score at this time amounting to 209 points, 10 points clear of Tim Bartlett who sits on 197, Glen Gardner retains his 3rd place with 193.  In B grade Paul Hewitt also increased his lead in that grade by recording a strong 36 in last Saturday’s round 6 to currently lead that group by 33 from Kin Li in 2nd place on 182.  With a score of 33 last week Gary Cook forced his way into the top 3 and now has a total score of 179.  The early lead in C grade by Michael Corfe has been substantially cut, however he still leads that division on 209, just 3 clear of Henri Arnold who charged up the leader board with an outstanding 38 points in last Saturday’s round to be in strong contention for the win in that grade.  Andrew Sear has also made a strong claim for C grade honours with an impressive 41 in last Saturday’s round to currently sit in 3rd place on 185.  However, with two rounds remaining in the series and with each player having to drop their two worst scores, these current results have the potential to drastically change in the final compilation of scores.  An interesting finish to the Summer Consistency Cup is guarantee with changes to the top spots currently, almost a certainty.  For a complete rundown of all the scores in each grade refer to the result sheets on the notice board.


Weekend Competition

In last Saturday’s 18-hole Stableford, there were some impressive scoring, none better than Terry Brooks, who playing off a handicap of 15 scored an amazing 43 points to take out the overall honours for the day.  Terry recorded 23 on the front 9 and coasted home with a handy 20 around the back to take the win.  There were 40 in A grade and the leading score in that bunch belonged to Sebastian Cox (9) with 38 points, just 2 clear of Tim Bartlett (2) with 36.  Tim’s trophy haul for the day enhanced by a more than normal nearest the pin trophy by claiming that prize on the 6th.  The B grade division attracted 39 starters in which Tim Phillips (15) was the star accumulating 38 for his 18 holes.  Just the single point in arrears to Tim was Jesse Langford (16) with 37.  Scores in C grade were rather impressive with Andrew Sear (17) recording the 2nd best overall score on the day with 41 against his name.  With 40 Mitch Rose (18) had one of his best days falling just short to Andrew by finishing one point in arrears with his score of 40.  Terry Bowe (14) played a great tee shot into the 1st to easily claim the Pro pin associated with that hole, with his ball just slipping past the pin to finish 118cm from the cup.  As mentioned earlier Tim Bartlett was awarded the prize on the 6th, Andrew Connor (13) was just 24cm from the cup on the 10th with Paul Hewitt (13) claiming the 17th.


Mid-Week Competition

Despite having to survive a countback in the Tuesday competition, Brian Chevally (26) was awarded the win in the members competition with 41 points from Matt McKee (scratch) who was on the negative side of the countback.  Michael Gane (9) continued his recent good from to claim the 2nd runner-up spot with 39 also on a countback from Leon McPhee (11) and Neville Higham (16).  Pro balls went down to 33 on a countback for the members. 

In the Veteran division, obviously, that was won by Brian Chevally with his 41 followed by Michael Gane and Leon McPhee with 39 from Neville Higham who was the unfortunate victim in the countback process.  Pro balls went down to those with 31 again on a countback.

Matt Davidson (12) put together 42 points to win the Thursday competition from Bill Darby (10 and Pul Grieve (10) bot on 39.  There were 73 starters in the Thursday competition, which is far more than normal which is good to see.  Pro balls going down to 33 on a countback.
