Monday, July 2, The Emerald – Stableford

The back nine greens at Emerald are due to be updated so probably a two-week break before we return here again.  The course was in good condition and there were no complaints about the greens today.

The cut was 7-18 and 21+ in division 2 and there were some great scores coming in and with 41 points Lindsay Phillips won division 1 after beating Ted Morris, now playing off 15, by one point.  Chris Voller meanwhile, despite an amazing 38 points, had to settle for third place.

Rod Howett and Lindsay Phillips - winners at Emerald on Monday. Rod Howett and Lindsay Phillips – winners at Emerald on Monday.

Rod Howett, in form lately, took the top podium position in division 2 with 38 points while his buddy boy Mark Armstrong claimed second one point behind and ‘Count back’ Burnie was third with 34.

An interesting day today in the ‘2’s with four rollovers in two divisions.  At the presentation back at Siam Cats later there was humorous uproar as the first group out today all recorded a ‘2’ in the second division, so well done Mark Armstrong, Roar Berger and Rod Howett.  In division 1 a slightly bigger pot was shared between Ted Morris and Chris Voller.
