The ongoing perfect weather continued to display some great scores on Saturday for the 2nd round of the club championships at Two Wells with 23 players hitting the course to continue their individual quest for golfs "Holy Grail" Club Champion in their respective grade. A grade was again dominated by Gary Payne with a fine 80 off the stick to win on the day close behind was the birthday boy Rabbit turning 53 on Friday proved he was up for the task shooting 81 with Andrew Baker also playing well with a fine 82. After 2 rounds all 3 are equal on 163 which will prove interesting in a fortnight as they will play together in the 3rd round.
B Grade also provided some great scores with Steve Kelly stepping up and shooting a fine 83 off the stick net 64 which would be close to his lowest for some time. Ian Clark finished 2nd with 64 and Doug Burford popping in for another cameo appearance with 67 for 3rd place. After 2 rounds B grade is shaping up for a solid 3rd round with Steve Kelly and Ian Clark both on 181 and Ian Gameau on 184. This should prove to be a good match up in the 3rd round. Jim Weir, Hans Linford & Ian Smith close behind waiting for the leaders to falter.
Kathy Stubing again continued to show fine form shooting her lowest round this year with 81 nett 64.
It was also a great day as Shorty Paul celebrated his 80th birthday at the club with family and friends. It was great to see Shorty out at the club and many members remained after the presentation to celebrate his milestone. We wish him all the best for the future.
Of course each week there is an award for the worst round of the day. The NAGA is often hotly contested however it would be remise of me not to acknowledge that 3 of the last four rounds the NAGA has been presented to the Captain. I have struggled with both knee issues and a pulled back muscle over the past weeks however no excuses as I am willing to hand the reign over to the next poor member who is in need of a golf ball and the medal.
