Par often brings out tied wins and today was no exception with four players getting the win with +2. Congratulations to Gordo, Damo, Targe and Priemsy for good solid rounds today and first placing. Only eliminating one mistake would have put someone in front but Par is a pretty unforgiving format and mistakes in par rounds hit harder than mistakes in stableford. 8 players out of 19 got par or better today which is a good percentage result.
Damo’s popped back onto the top of the Championship table .. as Julie Guillard would say ‘Game On!’
Next weeks tee time comes back to 7.30am for the September Monthly Medal.

Today a small miracle occurred right here in Melbourne. Defying all the laws of physics, a tee shot managed to hit the tee past the ladies markers and the ball (which was totally missed by the driver) went backwards into its own divot. Its rumored that Silvers circus is looking to hire our own CRAIG SHARP as their star performer. Such talent right here in our midst is truly awe-inspiring!.
To more mundane matters our winner this week was non other than Jan Siemon who shot a solid 39 just pipping out Rodger Clarke by 1 point for second and Mal Fleming with 36 for third place. Good to see a matchplay pair get good placings in the daily competition.
Matchplay. Rodger won his matchplay against Mal Fleming with a tight win of 2 & 1 and Chris Priems held off Oliver Gross to win 3 & 1.
Mike Mann has now got his third card in and is officially handicapped for next week which will be everybody’s favourite PAR!

Matchplay. Rodger Clarke d Mal Fleming 2 & 1. Chris Priems d Oliver Gross 3 & 1.
Obviously our winner today loves the winter conditions. Tony Mifsud shot an excellent 40, three stableford points clear of the field. Its interesting to note that that nobody has had 40 points or more in August for the last six years so its an excellent effort. Second place was hotly contested with Emilio, Noodles and Oliver all putting in 37 points.
Stefan Belevski got his first official card in today and played his first competition and Mike Mann got his second card in .. so the competitions hotting up!
