There must have been something on, a big national event perhaps? The carpark was almost empty but soon enough 13 members and a guest were quite excited for the big event (PAR, not the grand final).
Gareth who manages the course was keen for a game and joined the last group, but it was one of the earlier runners who made the most of the beautiful day and ended up with a score of +1 for the day. This was none other than Jason who was fairly consistent all day with 5 pluses and 4 minuses.
Peps was a bit late to arrive after waking up a bit worse for wear but warmed up to his game and put in an even performance with a square card and second place. This included a chip in for birdie on the 8th and backed it up again on the 9th.
A couple of bludgers were not too far back, Blighty and Noods with -1 shared 3rd place. A couple more shared 4th place, Simon and Brendon on -2. Simon was quite happy in the morning after a user error with the results for the week prior granted him 23 second placings in the seniors championship. This has now been rectified Targy so no reason to complain this week, you are still in the lead!
There was much anticipation with who would be good enough for 5th place, but Enzo took it on his lonesome with -3, much to the dismay of the players who were 1 further back. Gordon mentioned that Enzo was belting them down the middle off the tee all day and asking if anyone had taken photo of the exhibition. Well by the 16th Gordon rectified this, refer photo for the textbook stylings.
Speaking of Gordon, there were rumours of his tee shot not making the ladies on the 3rd and he was not having the best of days if his scorecard was anything to go by. The group behind also heard him wack a flag after a missed putt. You know what they say Gordo, a week is a long time in f###…..golf.
Another week and another Jackpot for the pro pin on the 15th. The ball hole on the 12 was hotly contested and Brendon was closest. He also sank the birdie putt. The ball hole on the 18th was in a tough spot on the back tier and Porks won it without much contest.
