1st Thierry Petrement (15) 46pts

The honors on the day went to our two French compatriots, Thierry Temime and Thierry Petrement.  Winning against their regular playing partner, Freddy Starbeck, is costing Freddy a lot nowadays, no wonder he is complaining so much about his handicap!  Tough it out Freddy, good days will come again!

Scoring a fabulous 41 points in second place, Thierry Temime is starting to make serious inroads into his high handicap, and he will no doubt continue to improve.  Thierry Petrement played his best round ever, breaking 80 for the first time as he had a flawless game helped in part by luck I was told, hitting a rock on a bad shot, bouncing onto the green and going in (for example).  Well that’s the way it goes Thierry, enjoy the moment since the golfing gods will have their revenge on another day!

There were 3 two’s recorded, from Geoff Christie, Wally Brown and Robbie Barnes.
