Sunday, July 7, Green Valley – Stableford

1st Dave Buchanan (1) 41pts

2nd Wayne Antiltz (12) 39pts

3rd Pete Seil (5) 37pts

4th Peter Henshaw (30) 37pts

5th Rod Torrie (8) 37pts

We had some real golfers playing with us today at Green Valley where despite a relatively small group, playing to your handicap didn’t even get you in to the prizes.

Dave Buchanan was playing his first ever game with us and he certainly made an excellent start by going round in four under par gross to shoot forty one points off his one handicap, great golf and probably one of our lowest gross scores ever! Wayne Antiltz also played very well and he came second with thirty nine points. We then had three players on thirty seven and a countback was needed to separate Pete Seil, Peter Henshaw and Rod Torrie.

We had six 2s, from Paul Pavloff (x2), Dave Buchanan, Wayne Antlitz, Pat Carty and Rod Torrie.

Thursday, July 11, Burapha – Stableford

1st Jerry Sweetnam (9) 37pts

2nd Pete Seil (5) 37pts

3rd Shaun Merriman (11) 34pts

Today we were on the C and D courses here in Burapha and both nines were in much better condition than the last time we played them.

Jerry Sweetnam was the winner with thirty seven points on countback over Pete Seil, however the latter wasn’t too disappointed as he posted the only birdie ‘2’ of the day. Shaun Merriman got the third place with thirty four points.
