VETS – NEWSLETTER week ending 7th February 2015


We had a great roll up for our “John Madill Toyota” Monthly Medal on Wednesday.  The field of 87 included 3 visitors.

It was nice to see one of our newer members Peter Buchbach have a win in A-Grade with a nett 66.  Jim Henderson in B-Grade had a credible 62, and John Woodward (picture left) C-Grade fired with a 61.   Jim Henderson (23 putts) won the 9 balls for the least putts, and Peter Reilly (24 putts) won 3 balls for running 2nd.

Thanks to Bob Noble for donating the balls.

More useful or useless stats from Monday’s 3 club and putter event.

Con Russell had 26 points on the front 9, but fell away on the back when it was suggested we would erect a statue in his honor if he could repeat the effort on the way in.  For the record the moment got to Con and he managed just another 8 points.

John Kelly had a total of 40 points and won the day.

Bruce Wilshire and John Stewart both had 22 points on the back 9.   Col Easton had 22 points on the front 9.

John Stewart, Col Easton, Bruce Wilshire, and Steve Howes all birdied the 13th.   Kevin Olsen birdied the 17th, and Geoff Pembroke birdied the 1st.

The hardest hole on the course the 11th saw 4 pars, 6 bogeys, 3 double bogeys, and 10 triple bogeys scored.

Not bad for 3 clubs & a putter.
