News: 2017 Bob Oxlade Memorial Trophy Winner Paul Shields 78/net 61.
Perfect conditions at Two Wells on Saturday with 17 players competing for the Honour Board Annual Bob Oxlade Memorial Trophy. Bob was the Club Captain back in the early 80’s and was taken from us suddenly in 84 a great Captain and a fantastic personality around the club well respected by all following North Adelaide footy Club and Two Wells.
The trophy this year was won by the current Club Captain Paul Shields 78/61 who knew Bob well and followed the same team spending many a Saturday at the club events both home and away with the usual banter and enjoyed many a round with him.
Having previously been runner up to Bingo Barns and Danny Smith it was the driving force on Saturday to focus and play well to take out the trophy. Playing with Steve Kelly, Michael Dimasi and Tim Clifton the game started to take shape hole by hole. The boys keeping me on track despite our interaction and banter on some of the boy’s shots. Turning the front nine with 38 and a quick chat with Hoggy at the 10th I knew the back nine had to be a solid finish. Walking of the 18th with a 40 gave me a good feeling that I would be close to my goal. Bobby Hogg finished second with 80/65 and Andy Paul making his return after a long break 3rd with 82/68.
B Grade was dominated by Steve Kelly who despite a lengthy discussion on the 17th scrape regrouped to finish with 87/65. 2nd was John Mills 94/69 and Jeoff Spackman 3rd with 95/71. Steve's game was solid and he managed to recover on a few holes to set up a good round. The course was in good nick despite the Toro being out of action still and with the lack of rain the coverage is good with growth slow. Gary and John have continued their work on the scraps with 3 left to finish the new surface coverage.
The putting competition was jointly won by Paul Shields and Andrew Baker with 24 putts the average on the day was 27 for the players.
A Grade results: P. Shields 61, R. Hogg 65, A. Paul 68, A. Baker 70, I. Gameau 71, I. Smith 73, I. Clark 73, G. Payne 74, T. Clifton 77 and J. Ball retired ill.
B Grade results : S. Kelly, 65, J. Mills 69, J. Spackman 71, H. Linford 72, M. Dimasi 72, J. Weir 79 and D. Smith 85.
