Watts tames Treasure Hill


PSC Golf from The Bunker Boys

Monday, July 15, Greenwood C & B – Stableford

1st Jimmy Carr (15) 33pts

2nd Tony Robbins (23) 30pts

3rd Chris Delamare (1) 29pts

A bright sunny day with clear blue skies and a slight breeze blowing meant conditions for golf were perfect, however, this was not reflected in the scoring which was poor at best. Once again Jimmy Carr, who seems to improve with age, was the winner again today with a modest score of thirty-three. Tony Robbins came second with thirty and Chris Delamare took third with twenty-nine.

Near pins went to Chris Delamare and Tony Robbins with two unclaimed, a measure of how poorly most played.

Wednesday, July 17, Eastern Star – Stableford

1st Jimmy Carr (15) 33pts

2nd Robby Watts (9) 32pts

3rd Tony Robbins (20) 30pts

Despite being a Buddha holiday the Eastern Star Course kept their green and caddie fees at sports day pricing, consequently, the course was quite busy for low season with at least two other major groups on the course.

The course was fine with the exception of the greens which had recently been sanded and many not very evenly so speed control was a major challenge as was reflected in the scores returned. It doesn’t seem to matter lately what the winning score is, it always seems to have Jimmy Carr’s name to it as was the case again today. Robby Watts came in second one adrift and Tony Robbins rounded out the scores with a modest thirty points.

Only one near pin was claimed, going to  Robby Watts, a further indication of how difficult the course played with a stiff breeze blowing.

Friday, July 19, Treasure Hill – Stableford

1st Robby Watts (9) 37pts

2nd Geoff Cox (15) 31pts

3rd Michael Brett (15) 30pts

The week’s golf ended with a game at the difficult Treasure Hill course in hot steamy conditions. The only one to master the course and conditions was Robby Watts with a first-place score of thirty-seven. Robby has never shot less than thirty-six on this course so clearly, it presents no mental issues for him. Second place went to Geoff Cox with thirty-one and third place went to Michael Brett with thirty points. Near pins went to Jimmy Carr and two to Michael Brett.
