Short Course Championships

Short Course Gross Results after Harrington Round 5

Short Course Nett Results after Harrington Round 5

The playing of the Harrington Waters Open Day yesterday saw the passing of the halfway point of the short Course Championships for 2018.

 The weather was kind to us but the wind played havoc with a few people.

Tommo reported hitting 15 balls in  the water so at least his car would have been lighter on the way home.

 Darren Searle from Karuah took out the event in a 2 hole playoff from Mike Jackson, Forster Tuncurry with a score of 81. Not the best winning score but in the conditions with wind and no run it is more that acceptable.

 B grade scratch went to Harrington Waters Rick Barlow 86 scratch from Club President Roy Hofmeier 91 and C grade scratch to Geoff Master from Karuah 92 and with runner up being Peter Tosevic from Harrington with 101.

The results for The Short Course Championships sees 18 players now having played the 4 rounds necessary to qualify and 5 players having played all rounds and thus now able to drop their worst scores (indicated with blue cells in the result sheet)

In the Gross Darren Searle has hit the front of those who have qualified but with Scott Polley from Wingham and two time winner Mark Johnson needing only 1 more round to qualify the result is far from over with 3 round left to play. Last year’s winner Garry O’Bryan is still not far behind Darren so still in the title hunt.

The net situation is also very interesting with Karuah’s perennial leader board holder Geoff Masters on top of those with the required qualifying rounds but closely perused by Darren, Gary, Mark. Geoff Harvey from South West Rocks is close by and only needs one more round to qualify but a bigger threat ready to pounce as he did the last event last year to win is Ted Russell from Dungog/Karuah. Ted also only needs one more round with home course Dungog as the last event I am sure Ted is eying off getting his name on the trophy again. Harrington’s Rick Barlow is also a strong contender in the net but needs to play two of the last 3 events.
