Short Course Championships

Short Course Gross Results after Round 2 Wingham

Short Course Nett Results after round 2 Wingham

A great day held at Wingham on Sunday 6th May for the Glass 24/7 Sponsored Open Day
Second of the 2018 Short Course Championships

Local player Scott Polley (Wingham) absolutely blitzed the field with a 7 birdie barrage to shoot a great 5 under par 67 to take out the event.

Scott after running second last year and being beaten in a playoff left nothing to chance this year and lead the field home by 9 shots.

Scott now shoots to the lead of the Short Course having played both events so far he leads perennial winner Mark Johnson by 7 shots.

Justin Ely (Waratah) who won Karuah is still at 5 under and of course the leader based on that, however the scores up until the 4 qualifying rounds are meet will be sorted by most rounds played and then the best scores so plenty of chances for all to get in there and win this event

Runner up in A grade was also local junior and last year’s victor Reed Brown on 76 from Mark Johnson and Rod Brown both with 77

The Nett Winner was yours truly Peter Budden (Harrington Waters) with 70 nett of my 8 handicap followed by Mark Johnson (Karuah) and Gary O’Bryan (Karuah) with 72 netts

B Grade Gross Winner was Ross Johnson (Karuah) with a fine 85 and after playing with Ross at Karuah in the last event I think the stewards may need to swab him. He was followed home by our “Little” Visitor from The National Golf Club in Victoria Ash Anderson who took home the same event in C grade 3 years ago so he has declared he is on the improve.

The B Grade Nett winner was the ever consistent Geoff Masters with 69 leading home Harrington Waters Mr consistand Rick Barlow who had a 70 nett. Geoff has climbed into the top 3 in the Short Course Nett leader board behind Scott Polley and Mark Johnson a position he has been in every year the event has run so far.

The C Grade winner was Wingham’s perennial winner Jim Bradshaw with a 95 off the stick to lead home 24/7 Glass sponsors son Tom Burley (Wingham) who shot 96

Nett winners for C Grade were Sam Couch (Wingham) with 69 followed by Stewart Borgman (Karuah) with 75
Wingham must be congratulated and Superintendent David Henderson and his band of volunteers had the greens in fantastic condition and the fairways while a little bumpy have recovered well after some recent rains following the long dry spell well done to President Gregg and Captain Neville for their efforts

It was good to see so many winners there to accept their prizes from the sponsors and remember if you want to win the game of golf and accommodation voucher sponsored by Harrington Hotel and Harrington Waters Golf Club you must be at the card draw at presentation time.

We now have a bit of a break until the next event at Stroud on the 12th August
