KAPUNDA - MEMORIAL TROPHY

It was the annual Captain's v Chairman's grudge match, the Memorial Trophy played at Kapunda.   Only 0.1 of a point separated the teams at the end, the Captain's team being victorious.  It was former Chairman Ray McCard who let his team down badly, coming dead last with a pathetic 30 points.

 

Here is the report from the victorious Captain ...

19 players made the trek north to Kapunda for the Memorial Trophy. We faced blue calm skies and furry slow greens and played off the white tees.

A catch up pairs game was played. Super sub Greg Adam paired Andrew Saint against Darren McCard/Colin McPhedran. Darren and Colin won 2 & 1 and made it into the 2nd round of pairs.

 Ray McCard was at his carting best , taking out some hoops in the ground on the 1st hole , driving straight over one of them with out seeing it.

The winner for the day with a great 42 points was Corey Mather. Corey killed it and I reckon the handbrake came on a bit at the end but he won by 3 over the inform Darren McCard who had 39 points on a 3 way countback with John McKenzie also 39 and Clem Bennett 39.

We had a special guest today, past 150+ game player Theo Symonds aka batman who also scored an impressive 39 points on his home course. 5th place was Ivan Wootton with 38 points and rounding out the top6 was Colin Hincks with 37 points.

 Longest drive went to myself and nearest to the pins went to Geoff Rigby (par3) and John McKenzie (par4). It was a high NAGA and it was won by Ray McCard on a countback with 30 points.

The other competition that went on was the Chairman v Captain teams. Darren and I studied the form and over a 4 hour selection process on saturday the teams were picked.

Chairman's team: 315/9  Average = 35.0
Corey Mather 42; Darren McCard 39; Ivan Wootton 38; Jamie Hill 35; Alan Hincks 35; Colin McPhedran 32; Geoff Rigby 32; Peter Robinson 32; Ray McCard 30.

Captain's team: 351/10  Average = 35.1
Clem Bennett 39; John McKenzie 39; Theo Symonds 39; Colin Hincks 37; Randy Wallace 36; Darren Bartholomew 35; Dave Wilmshurst 34; Dave Larcombe 31; Andrew Saint 31; Greg Adam 30.

FINEGAN SAUSAGE SIZZLE - McCRACKEN

The club ventured to McCraken on 18 March and what a great day.  The highlight of the day was a Sausage Sizzle and Beer for all players on the 13th hole.  Cooked wonderfully by Dareen Finegan and Christine Smith, it was much appreciated by all players.  A couple of players enjoyed it so much, that they had to be asked to leave and continue their round.  Over $100 was raised for the club, and a big thank you to Bill and Dareen for their generosity.   As for the golf, the cream rose to the top, with only the very best players being able to come to terms with the very windy conditions.  Darren McCard winning the day on a very shonky count back system, with Jonah being on the wrong side of that.  Frank Poser's form has gone from hero to zero, winning the NAGA. It was great to see a couple of new players out, Tony and Lee.

ROUND 4 - SINGLES QUALIFYING

We had 20 players venture to Mt Barker for Singles Qualifying.  Best weather we have had all year, and the course was in magnificent condition.   Following on from 42 pts last week, Frank Poser was simply awesome posting 44 pts to win the day.  I had the pleasure of playing with him, and it was poetry in motion.  He played the back nine in only 4 over par off the stick!  Daylight came second.  Wayne Best pumped one of the longest drives in club history, to win the longest drive hole.  It was measured out to 299.94 metres.  The only other thing worth mentioning is Darren McCard won the nearest the pin, with a laser like 6 iron on the par 3 second.  Oh, and Jamie Hill did a great job as captain.

ROUND 2 - DRUMMOND GOLF TROPHY

Conditions today at Gawler were brutal, with many believing that the oppressive heat was the worst in golf club history. A couple of players did not go the full journey. Jeff Pike collapsed under a tree on the 17th hole and had to be rescued by the Ray McCard Golf Cart Ambulance, but Robbo only lasted 6 holes! General consensus was that Captain Big Willy (Dave Wilmshurst) picked a good round to miss, as he probably could not have gone the full journey either. Randy Wallace won the Drummond Golf Trophy with 36 pts, despite wearing a wet handkerchief as headwear – not a good look! Jamie Hill was runner up also with 36 pts, quite a remarkable effort as he could not hit a damn thing on the practice range. Tracey Larcombe is a legend, after driving all the way to Gawler to deliver David Larcombe golf shoes, as he left them behind this morning. A few started calling him Shoeless Larry, after Shoeless Joe Jackson from Field of Dreams.

Remember it is Pairs Qualifying next round !!

ROUND 1 2018 - BUSCUMB TROPHY
Round 1 got underway at Echunga and it was Sheepy who took out the first trophy of the year, the Buscumb trophy.

Some things change ..... Peter Pedersen won a golf trophy, well done to Peter on winning the Buscumb Trophy.

Some things don’t change ..... Darren McCard won yet another NAGA.

It was fantastic to welcome out three new members for their first round. A very warm welcome to Ivan Wootton, Corey Mather, and John McKenzie

The influx of new members puts some pressure on us having too many golfers playing at once, so some of the lesser talented players may have to go on to a reserve waiting list. Many apologies to Frank Poser.

But, the big story of the day, is that the Captain Dave Wilmshurst was “quietly” sounding out possible new partners for the Pairs Championship. Could there really be a rift that will break up the 3 x time championship pairing?
