On Saturday, November 30 the Scone golfers played an 18 Hole Individual and 2 Ball Aggregate Par for the David Druce and Mick Reynolds trophies. A good field of 43 players turned up in very windy conditions which became worse during the afternoon. With par events being a rarity on the golfing program and not always enjoyed by golfers, a very good score was recorded by Guy Wilkinson who had +5. He combined with his partner Michael Stanford who had -2 to have + 3 to win the 2 ball prize.
David and Mick also provided the grade prizes. A Grade was won by Clayton Rogers with +2, B Grade by Troy Collison on +3 and C Grade by Col Solway on +1.
To add to the enjoyment of the day, David and Mick sponsored two extra NTP’s in two on the 3rd / 12th hole and on the 9th / 18th. The winners of these were Jake Teague at 1.97metres and George Davidson at 7.8 metres. In the regular NTP’s Michael Stanford added to his good day out by winning the jackpot of an additional ball on the 4th / 13th with a shot to 0.76 metres on the 4th. Jodie Ihle won the 8th / 17th at 2.52 metres.
Balls were won by: Guy Wilkinson +5, Troy Collison +3, Clayton Rogers +2, Charlie Wintle, Col Solway, Oscar Field +1, Tom Thompson, Ross Banks, Alan Wood, Harry Mitchell on square, Red Palmer, Stuart Dawson, Chris Wilson, George Davidson, Tony O’Neill on -1, and Phil McGuirk, Michael Stanford, Justin Smart on -2 on a countback from unlucky Brad Hockley and Peter Teague.
The Snyman Fourball Knockout is down to the semi- finals. George Davidson and Harry Mitchell meet Jake and Peter Teague, whilst Jeff Harrington and Tony O’Neill play Derek and Oscar Field.
Players are also reminded that Round 2 of the Summer Knockout needs to be completed by December 27.
Next Saturday, December 7 the men will contest the Scone RSL Monthly Mug. The Scone lady golfers continue their 9 hole event on Thursday December 5, heading out at 8am each week for a stableford round.
On Sunday, December 1, sixteen visiting junior golfers from two Golf Academies, Hunter and Northern Inland, enjoyed a game on the Scone course. They played a mixture of an 18 hole event with six holes of best ball, six holes of foursomes and six holes of individual scratch. They finished the day with lunch prior to heading back home north and south from the central venue.
