President’s Putter Additional Report from The President Julie Smith
Tony Kopczak brushed aside the opposition to claim the President’s Putter with 38 points, two clear of Nigel Ward and Toby Hunt. Best lady was Ros Gray from Christine Stewart, both with 33 points. 31 players beat the President’s score of 27 points.
CSS for the round was one less than SSS 37 @ 36. Men’s handicap list…
In the Men’s Top Dog Trophy, Dave Williams maintained his bite with a margin of four points, being the only player on the leader board to pick up any points in this round.
31 players were skilful (or lucky) enough to beat my woeful score of 27 points and went into the Grand Prize Draw. The two names drawn at random were:
1st: Sheena Harrington who wins a dozen golf balls of her choice
2nd: Graeme Syme who wins a bottle of Wolf Blass “President’s Selection” white wine
13 players (unlucky for them!!) did not beat my score and went into the BOOBY Prize Draw. The two boobies drawn at random were:
1st: Di Jackett
2nd: Bob Marshall
The boobies each win a brass ball marker with an “L plate” design.
Ladies lose – lopsided score.
The Centurion Open was a victim of the weather, with three holes closed due to flooding.
However, some intrepid soles played the remaining 15 holes. Lee Eden convincingly won the 15 hole Non-Qualifier sweep with 36 points, four ahead of Peter Harrington and Tom Scarr.
Unlike many ladies who found the rough troublesome, Doreen Dolby managed to keep the ball on the fairways to score an excellent net 71 and win the Ladies’ July Monthly Medal. In second place only one shot behind was Veronica Mitchell.
The CSS increased by two shots to 73.
Early clubhouse leader Toby Hunt looked safe with a sparkling 65. But Itsawat Mahgumrongkul returned a 63 to win the medal dropping just 4 shots on the back 9.
CSS was unchanged from SSS 68. Men’s handicap list…
In the Grand Medal Trophy, Kerry Sargeant leads with 286 from fiur rounds. It’s still wide open with three rounds left however.
Simon Beard for RPGC won the trophy on a back 9 count back from Nigel Toombs of Putney Park with both carding excellent 65s. A strong finish for 66 from R. Lansley gave Centurions representation in third position.
Due to the generosity of Ron Linden, extra prizes for RPGC members were won as follows:
Best net Men Simon Beard (Champagne)
Best net Ladies Julie Smith (Champagne)
NTP 14th Graeme Syme (Wine)
NTP 16th Peter Harrington (Wine)
NTP 9th Arthur Dolby (Wine)
NTP 3rd Gurpal Sekhon (Wine)
My recollection is that Simon Beard was nearest 18th (Beer).
CSS was unchanged from SSS 70. Men’s handicap list…
Report due soon.
