Maclean Saturday Stableford – Tom Martin in “sparking” form

With four birdies, club electrician Tom Martin was certainly in electric form on Saturday. With a gross 73 his 41pts was a cable ahead of the opposition.

Club Captain and  improving Brendan Reeves was four points back in second with 37pts. Just one point behind Brendan was David Beaumont who just pipped three other players on c/b.

Ball prizes down to just the lucky top 34 point-getter Peter Fitzpatrick.

In B Grade, Greg Saul made a welcome return to the podium with an excellent 41pts. Just two points back was the very steady Dennis Runge with 39pts. Pat Hensel was just two points further behind to secure third place on c/b.

Ball prizes down to 35pts in crowded B Grade field. Included in this group just was Phillip Killerian whose high quality birdie at the 18th just squeezed him in.

In C Grade, Ben Apps just took the field apart and mowed down all opposition with 43pts. Bill Rorke was three shots back in 2nd with Ted Harvey just edging Tracey Johnson for third place.

Ball prizes down to Todd Peterie on 32pts.

Notable NTP on 2 was Richard Parker whose tee shot shaved the hole (we are told) and he managed to get the birdie putt.

Wendy King had a very good round and highly placed 33pts, which on this occasion was much too good for last weeks star Paul King our club professional.

A bumper field of 115 enjoyed excellent course conditions, but they must expect a much harder set up for this  Saturdays Medal of Medals.

Maclean Midweek and Grayso’s back!

After torrid few months with different driver head and shaft combinations, it looks like Club President Geoff Grayson has found the right combination.

With a 74 gross for a  solid 40pts, he just edged out Coby Tabor on c/b in A Grade. Club professional Paul King had an excellent 74 gross to just pip a number of players on 38 points.

Ball prizes in both grades down to Peter Fitzpatrick on 33pts.

In B Grade, Michael Rice could do nothing wrong with blistering 42pts. A good round of 37 points from Shane McLeay was the nearest to Michael.

NTP on 2 was Theodore Sheppard; Tom Martin was closest on 7 and 11 with Derek Bloomfield extremely close on 17. The Thistle hole was taken by Wayne Nunn for the first time. Well done Wayne.

Notable other scores: Graham Eggleton still locked out of his WA home took 33 points. He must like the place!
