Month: June 2009
Well done to Richard Hall who posted his first win on only his fifth game with the club. His jubilation was shared with Priemsy who also shot a 39 and has now tightened up the top of the championship table. Just to show last week was not a fluke our youngest member Kazim ran a close second with our fireman (well almost) Gordo.
Unfortunately I was crook so didn’t see any of the fun and games this week but for my sins I’m tee marshall on Saturday.
Full Results for today are
1st Richard Hall(38) 1st Chris Priems(39) 2nd Kazim Akdag(38) 2nd Gordon Hill(38) 3rd Mehmet Akdag(37) 3rd Tony Mifsud(37) 4th Ben Akdag(36) 5th Ken Grist(35) 5th Bob McDonald(35)
Our old president Vin O’Meara used to do the handicapping based on ‘potential’…well we don’t need to do that with todays winner, he’s done it all himself and halved his handicap down to 17 from a starting handicap of 34! Well done Kazim. Right behind was Mehmet breathing down Kazim’s neck two strokes behind. Well done to the Akdag clan (ps what happened to Ben and Musti??).

Ruling needed on unusual lie.
Neil’s buggy is located on the fairway well down the 3rd – almost to the big tree. Joe Demir in the group behind tees off and his ball bounces once and lodges in Neil’s bag between clubs. It could have been only 20 metres short of the green the way it was travelling. Distance is indicated by “How far” top photo.
Neil threatened to keep walking with the ball lodged in his bag for the rest of the round and see if Joe could find it. Targe, Mal Adey and I talked him out of that.
Congratulations to our winner today, the only player, with a silly hat, who beat their handicap
David Howard with a solid 38 points. Joe Demir put in a good round for second and last weeks winner Damo was in for third. For myself I can summarise my day with the photo on left 🙂 .. the result of my tee shot on the twelfth.
Nobody took out the money today so we have a jackpot to next week.
Three quarter final matchplays were held today and Ben, David and Andrew go through to the semi finals. Outstanding quarter round matches are Oliver Gross vs Neil Argall and Ken Grist vs Craig Sharp
The silly hat award though goes jointly to Gordo and Snags for their creativity using two hats rather then one 🙂

Matchplay Qtr Finals. Ben Akdag d S. O’Sullivan, D.Howard d T.Mifsud, A.Petricola d D.Lee
A real scrap by the low handicappers today with Damien Lee shooting 70 off the stick and net 62 taking out the June monthly medal pipping out the second place getter Andrew Petricola who shot 69 off the stick! with a net 63. All I can say is that I’m glad that I don’t have a single figure handicap .. too much stress!! :-). Its also great to see the overall scoring with more than half the players in the next sixties.
Damo now leads the championship table with 45 points after this excellent win. Note he also won the clubhouse comp with net 58!
Trivia .. Checkout Mehmets championship points, he’s got one first, one second, one third, one fourth and one fifth .. glad I’m not a superstitious golfer!
