The legacy of practice is good fortune!
This was certainly the case for Arthur Bosanquet who is often seen on the practice range and practice green working on his game.
On Wednesday, Arthur not only won the competition with 41 points, he won the Just Bathrooms ‘mystery nine’ with 22 points and what’s more he scored that most elusive of golf achievements, a hole-in-one!
In another stroke of serendipity, that hole-in-one on the 13th hole was the Just Bathrooms mystery hole for that competition and Arthur has also won $100 courtesy of Just Bathrooms.
A great day out on what Arthur describes as a magnificent day to play golf under perfect weather and with the course in superb condition.
Arthur will also be awarded 6 golf balls from the club as a reward for his ace, have the successful ball mounted as a permanent reminder of the perfect shot and will receive a special package from GolfNSW consisting of a commemorative shirt and a bottle of wine.
Congratulations Arthur. Your dedication to practice and the support you give to all club events deserves the good fortune of Wednesday’s results.
The latest results and Championship Round 3 preview
Round two has been played and ‘moving day’ approaches! The course is in great condition so everybody has that chance to ‘move on up’ the leaderboard and become a factor in the championships in their respective grade.
In A grade Steve Rippon has opened up a gap of 7 strokes from Daniel Hamilton with Ken Bradley, David Ferguson, Greg Seymour and Anthony Smith nearby. Steve is well placed to defend his title at this stage but anything can happen and a good round will put any of the others in good stead for a final round surge.
Ken Bradley leads the nett by 5 from Lee Hayward and David Ferguson with Con Kiayias, a whole host of players close by.
In B grade, Andrew Ball and Peter Francis are equal leaders, one ahead of Tom Zimmermann. Bruce Byers and Ross Graham also lurk very close. The leaders will need to play well to keep in front of the chasing pack!
Peter leads the nett by 2 over Andrew with John Anthony, Tom, Bruce, Darby Campbell and Matt Tedeschi all close by and primed to pounce on any mistakes by the leaders.
In C Grade, Phil Adams is our leader by 2 over Ian Unsworth with Steve Oppert, Robert Anderson and Geoff Reynolds all within range to mount an attack on the leaders.
The nett is very close with Laurie Fogarty 2 clear of Ian and three clear of Bob Wright and Phil. The experienced Bob Weir is one further back and will certainly be a force over the closing two rounds.
Not in the championships? Don’t fret, the daily competition is available for you to play in. Last week Murray Bezzant managed to win the daily comp even though he was not playing in the championships.
The ladies certainly know how to play a team event! Last Tuesday Lorraine Cram and Marie Farrant scored 50 points in the 4BBB. NOT GOOD ENOUGH as Barbara Costello and Nicole Woolley scored a mammoth 52 points. WOW! Margaret Stephens and Shirley Dixon could ‘only’ accomplish 47 for third place.
On Monday Chris Goodwin managed to turn his excellent recent ball striking into a winning score to win A division in the vets stableford. The standard in B division was very high with Luke Oborn winning with 44 points. Italo Baraldi fired a highly credible 42 points with ladies Kim Oborn and Gail Rutledge also on the podium. Clearly it was a great day for the Oborn family.
