With round two of the Summer Cup now out of the way there are only two rounds to go with the worst round able to be dropped once the four rounds are played. Scores are creeping back up into the 40's with players receiving balls down to 36 points and of course handicaps are adjusting to some great scoring.
On Saturday, 36 players contested round two of the Summer Cup. A grade was won by Trevor Bailey (in great form at the moment) with a solid 37 points from Terry Johnston with 36 points. The B grade competition was easily won by Heikki Evans with a round of the day 43 great points. Wayne Ryan came in second with 40 points on a countback to decided second place. Every putt counts! In C grade Greg Abraham scored an impressive 45 points (round of the day) with second place going to Ken Ganya with 41 points on a countback. Nearest the pin on the 9th went to Bart Joseph with a super shot and on the 17th Bill McGregor put it nice and close. Ball winners for the competition went down to 36 points. Long drives went to John Gargett in A grade, Dominic Rossi in B grade, and Sandy Litchfield in C grade.
On Sunday, 32 players contested a single stableford event. Brian Searl won A grade with 40 points, Rob Hain took out B grade and Rulie Steinfort continued her good form to blitz C grade. Ball winners went down to 38 points. Nearest the pin on the 9th went to Sam Patricks and on the 17th Steve Young ended up with the closest shot.
Last Wednesday, January 9, scores continued to remain in the 40's for the individual stableford event.
