No great golf scores to talk about

A field of 11 contested a Par event on Saturday in the Men’s Golf competition without any great scores to talk about.

When Stewart Fraser wins the day with a score of +4, you know it’s been a pretty ordinary day.

Greg Clark came second with +3 and Jay Egan was third on square.

Piers Brown was 4th on -1.

Only one Nearest the Pin shot was recorded and that was by Fraser, on the easy par three on the 15th hole.

There were 13 players on Sunday for a Stableford event.

Paul Kershaw, with 40 points, won the day by one shot ahead of Garry Wilkin on 39.

They were closely followed by Scott Mayne on 38 and Piers Brown on 37.

Most of the players were consistent with the exception of Geoff Rorke who was obviously affected by too much ‘Skins’ golf and could only muster up 24 points.

Nearest the Pin prizes were won on the 3rd hole by Mark Fraser, on the 7th by Garry Wilkin,  and on the 8th by Piers Brown.

Golf Captain Peter Brien manfully carried the Cobar flag at the at NSW Sandgreen Championships in Barraba over the weekend but came home empty-handed.

The event was won by Bill Brigden from Warren.

This weekend is the BCD Projects day, a Stableford, on Saturday and another individual Stableford is set down for Sunday.

Sunday will also see the Western Districts Pennants contested at Warren.

Cobar will be taking two teams but they still
need one more player
to make up the two teams.

The much-awaited grand finale to the Bill Bartlett Matchplay competition between Garry Wilkin and Phil Gilligan will be played before the end of the month.

The Nearest the Pin competition will also end this month.

And there is also the ‘Skins’ of a Monday afternoon, where Mick Bannister, John Martin and Joe Palma will happily teach golfers some of life’s great lessons.—Way Out of Bounds
