There were lots of folks in the 30’s today but you needed 36 points to get in the frame.  Vic Hestor was our winner on count-back with a B9-18, B6-12 nipping Peter LeNoury B9-18, B6-11.  Nok Hestor had a B9-16, B6-12 to edge out Tommy ‘Boy’ Balch B9-16, B6-11.

The near pin winner on #12 was John Lawton, the highlight of his day.  Great playing all and thanks for supporting The Golf Club.

Wednesday, Jan. 26, St. Andrews – Monthly Medal

A Flight

1st John Emmerson (11) net 71

2nd Mark Wood (9) net 71

3rd David Mather (8) net 72

B Flight

1st Tommy Balch (28) net 69

2nd Vic Hestor (15) net 72

3rd Dale Shier (14) net 72

Near Pins:  #5 Dale Shier,  #10 David Mather

A very popular regular was presented with the coveted Monthly Medal winner’s shirt on Wednesday evening at The Golf Club.  Tommy Balch continued his good form for the week and fired a net 69 to be crowned champ.  It should be noted that he was very happy to finally shoot his age, albeit a net score!

Once again we had count backs galore.  In A Flight John Emmerson edged Mark Wood 34.5 to 35.5 to leave them in first and second respectively.  David Mather was third but could have had a shot at the title if a few more putts had dropped.

In B Flight our champ led with a net 69 while a count-back decided second and third with Vic Hestor edging Dale Shier 34.5 to 36.  It was interesting to see from a field of 38 less that than half shot their handicap in a medal comp.

Our next month’s medal will be held at Phoenix.

Friday, Jan. 28, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

1st Dale Shier (14) 39pts

2nd Tim Wilkinson (4) 39pts

3rd Brad Sproxton (11) 33pts

Mountain Shadow proved the victor today as only 2 players bettered their cap and many where left disheveled on the side of the greens wondering what had just occurred.

Dale “you won’t find that in any book” Shier narrowly beat out Wilko Jr. (Tim Wilkinson) on yet another count-back, B9-19 to B9-17.  It seems the lesson with Richard Livingston proved profitable.

Brad Sproxton picked up third place with 33 points while the solitary near pin went to Grant Montgomery.
