Russell Gilroy, despite having lost three shots on his handicap over the past few weeks did it again today and won with thirty eight points with a clear two point victory.  Russell had nineteen points on both nines while two players had thirty six points overall and on the count back Craig Robson lost out to Bernie Stafford who claimed second place.

Don Everett had only fifteen on the front but twenty on the inward half to give him fourth place ahead of John Dearden and Shaun Tracy on count back.

Don Everett and Bob St Aubin shared the ‘2’s with one each.

2nd Joe McArdle (15) 37pts

3rd Ronan Simms (20) 36pts

4th Donal McGuigan (19) 36pts

We played the A and C nines today and found both of them in very good condition and with excellent, fast greens.

We had a new winner today with Don Everett coming out on top with thirty seven points ahead of Joe McArdle on count back.  We then had two players with thirty six points and here Ronan Simms won the count back to come third and Donal McGuigan had to settle for fourth.

Russell Gilroy wasn’t in the prizes today but he still got some money as he had a ‘2’ but he had to share the pot with Ronan Simms, Ted Morris and Don Everett.

Thursday, August 24, Burapha – Stableford

Stuart Brown.
Stuart Brown.

1st Stuart Brown (11) 40pts

2nd Andy Featherstone (6) 37pts

3rd Don Everett (22) 33pts

We were again on the A and B courses here at Burapha and it seems like Russell Gilroys great run has come to an end as for the second comp this week he failed to make the prizes.

Today it was Stuart Browns turn to shine and he had a very clear win with forty points.  Andy Featherstone had just arrived back and was complaining about jet lag but it certainly didn’t affect his performance as he came second with thirty seven points.  Don Everett took the third and last podium place with thirty three points.

Stuart Brown made it an even better payday as he had the only ‘2’ of the day.
