Putts 'n" Pars - Monday 29th May 2023

Putt’s ‘n’ Pars from Grafton Golf Club Mid Week Competition With the focus on the Women golfers 59th Annual May Tournament last week, the men’s golfing programme was a little restricted with just the Tuesday Members/Veterans competition their only event for the week, that is apart from Saturday’s Mixed American Foursomes which was the final component of the women’s tournament. The results of the Tuesday competition were identical in both the members and veterans competition. The overall winner on the day was Scotty Scott (30) with a nett score of 66, four shots clear of David Morgan (13), Brian Dougherty (18) and Norm Burt (17) all completing their rounds with a nett 70. The competition also served as the final round of the veterans 2023 Championships with the results of that series currently available on the Club’s Facebook page. The only variance between the Vets and Members was in the ball rundown with 16 members rundown going down to those with 72 and 79 on a countback for the veterans. Hole-in-One It may be hard to believe, but the last hole in one recorded until this week was achieved by Danny Li on 20th November 2021. That all changed this week with two players, Sue Reguson and David Morgan breaking the hole in one drought. David’s was achieved on the 10th, using a demonstrator 7 wood, which he was further rewarded for that effort by picking up the hole in one bonus of $1,000. No doubt also causing some financial grief to his regular playing partners. Sue Reguson on the other hand was not eligible for the bonus being a visiting golfer who was competing in the Women’s May Tournament. Sue’s hole in one occurred on the 17th hole in the Thursday round of the ladies series. The hole in one bonus will now revert back to $250 and will increase each week with players entering the hole in one component of the competition. Saturday Competition As mentioned earlier, the final event in the Women’s May Tournament was AC Small Maxwell & Co Chartered Accountants sponsored mixed American Foursomes, which attracted an almost maximum field of just over 100 players. It was no surprise that the gross winners with a score of 68 were the pairing of Jackson Wright and Hollie Fuller who are both the current Club Champions in the men’s and women’s divisions. Runners-up in the gross event was John Dahl and Sue Reguson with a score of 74 against their names. In the handicap scheme of things, the winners were Simon Loadsman and Ann Caitlin who recorded a nett score of 64.624. In the runners-up spot were Graeme Smith and Cheryl Smee with 66.50. Pro Am As most golfers would be aware this year’s Pro Am is scheduled for Friday 21st July. In a Club promotion there is an opportunity for a Club member to win a $660 sponsor package in the up-coming event. Only 66 numbers will be sold at $10 each and are available at the bar. The draw for the winners will be conducted once all 66 numbers have been sold. The winning package will include an invitation to the pre-sponsor dinner, golf for two with two playing professionals, limited edition golf shirts, grab and go breakfast, event prizes end of day N.T.P. shootout, barbecue lunch and presentation. No doubt a great value package for someone to win for very little outlay. Up Coming Events Our normal mid-week competitions will resume this week, with Saturday’s competition being the Craig Woods Plumbing Monthly Mug, which as normal is a Stroke event. Ray Hopwood
