Tim Tulenew and Chris Ryan were the winners of Sunday’s American two-ball with a 59 nett, just a couple of blemishes on their card, a bogey on the 13th and 14th.
A highlight was left-handed Tim drawing his tee shot around the bend on the eighth and finishing on the green, a distance of 326 metres. It was the second time in a week, unfortunately neither he nor Tim could sink the Eagle putt.
Another birdie on the difficult 15th sealed their win. Runners-up for the second week in a row were Colleen Anderson and Rhonda Holmes with 63.25 nett, holes nine and 10 were unkind to them, dropping four shots at a crucial time.
Overall they played the par threes very well with a birdie over the cowal, the rest were easy pars bar the ninth.
Chocolate winners were James W Barrow and Andy Lane also with 63.25 nett.
They were flying high after nine holes at one over par. The back nine was a much different story, eight over was the best they could manage. Anthony Ah-See and Salty Taylor had 64.5 nett followed by Mark Keighran and George Holmes with 66.25 nett.
Pin winners were Tim, Chris, Keiro, Peter Murphy and a double to Mr Ah-See.
The day was sponsored by Graham, Eileen and Darren Larsen who have been sponsors for many years. Thank you folks very much for your continued support and to Andy Lane who organised the day.
Dave Bartley won the medal play-off on Saturday with 66 nett, a three shot margin over Tex Tomek and Col Pratt. There was very little between them at half-time, but Dave went forward and the rest went backwards.
Of the eight eligible players, seven turned up to make it a good contest. Pin winners were Tex and a double to Dave.
The day’s trophy, a pair of binoculars plus some other goodies were donated by our great mate in Dubbo, Ray Howell.
