RESULTS FROM 16th JUNE 2014 – Invitation Visit to WOODFORD

27 Cooroy players made the trip down to Woodford.

A clear crisp winter day saw a red hot performance by Brad Lavender to take out the overall winners spot with his highest ever Stableford score of 47 points.  Nevertheless Brad was just a tad disappointed saying he left a few shots on the course.   Brad also won the bottle of The Park Wine Company Cabinet Sauvignon wine for our best performed player in an away host day/invitation competition sponsored by smallPRINT Australia Pty Ltd.

John Dangar put in a hot performance also to card 44 points and take out 2nd place overall.

Other noteworthy performances were:

Laurie Staples – NTP and Birdie on 17th.

Terry Lyons – Pro Pin on 18th.

Run Down: Brad Lavender, John Dangar, Rod Roemermann, Ray Glover, Col Easton, John Round, Ian McMullen.


Event: Stableford
Prize Donor: “The Bush Boys”

Thanks to The Bush Boys for their generous sponsorship support.  This is the second time this year they have sponsored an event. They will do so again later in the year.

It was great to see Chris Simpson (left) back enjoying a game of golf after some serious shoulder surgery following a fall back in January this year.  Chris wisely made sure his drive on the 5th didn’t go anywhere near “that creek”, the cause of his fall.  Chris reckons he now has so much metal in his shoulders he no longer needs steel shafts on his golf clubs.

Brad Lavender followed up Mondays great performance at Woodford with another great round of Stableford golf taking out C Grade with an excellent 42 points.  It was enough to convince Brad he should stay with golf after thinking about giving it away to take up Croquet or Bowls.

Despite recent surgery Kevin Olsen put in a stoic performance to take out A Grade with 39 points.

A Grade Winner: Kevin Olsen 39, Runner Up: Les Arthur 38 c/b
B Grade Winner: Don Clelland 40, Runner Up: John McNamara 39
C Grade Winner: Brad Lavender 42, Runner Up: Tony Kershaw 40
