2019 Short Course Results after Gloucester Round 7

Hello All

 Attached is the updated Short Course sheet after round 7 at Gloucester

This report incorporates round 6 Bulahdelah on the 20th Oct and Gloucester on the 27th October

Both courses were well attended and presented very well. Gloucester was dry and no water for fairways but green were perfect and fast leading to some 4 putts one 5 putt and 6 putt that Jim delighted in telling us all about. Bulahdelah very well presented as always and the fairway watering has been great for them and the kangaroo population.

Scott Polley from Wingham took out the Open with a 2 over score of 72 from local Geoff Harvey with 76

B grade went to Murray Sharp from Stu McNaughton Bulahdelah

The Russel boys Edward “Ted” and Dennis from Karuah and Dungog managed to get on the dais again at Bulahdelah but took pity on us by not playing at Gloucester.

Gloucester’s  Jamie “Emu” Andrews take out the open with par figures of 72 from another local Paul Blanch who shot 1 over for 73 but lost a lottery ticket to Hairy and I, Snowy let him down.

B Grade winner for second week in a row was Murray Sharp form Bulahdelah with a fine 87 off the bat from Karuah’s Adrian Callahan with 89. (still waiting for the crab sandwiches Cal and Rosco)

OK now to the updated results with one round to go we have 40 players who have the necessary 4 rounds to qualify and 3 players who have played all 7 rounds to date so well done you guys. There are also 23 players sitting on 3 rounds needing another round this week to qualify.

Rules are after 4 rounds you can continue to drop your worst scores and as such you can climb up the leader board quite quickly with a good round.

With 1 round to go at Dungog this week from those already qualified “OBY” Gary O’Bryan from Karuah lead the scratch with 19 over par for his 4 best rounds and has quite a commanding lead over Peter Budden (Harrington Waters) with 31 over and Darren Searl also from Karuah who is 36 over. Sitting on 15 over is last year’s winner Scott Polley (Wingham) who needs one more round to qualify so if he tees it up at Dungog could be threat to OBY. Snowy Gorton (Hawkes Nest / Dungog) and Geoff Harvey South West Rock / Bulahdelah)both still need 1 round to qualify but need to shoot under par to have a chance.

Of those already qualified in the nett Edward (Ted) Russel (Dungog / Karuah) has a commanding lead at 10 under par from OBY who is 5 under and Peter Budden 1 over so with Ted on his home course for the last round it will be tough task to run him down. Murray Sharp with his 2 fine rounds over the last 2 events sits at 4 under but needs to play Dungog to qualify.
