Massive numbers for monthly medal
A massive turnout of 42 players graced the Coonabarabran golf course on Saturday, 20 June, for the final Calpeda Pumps Monthly Medal - sponsored by Steve Larance.
The field consisted of six women and 36 men, with tee-off commencing at 10.30 with a shotgun start - all players hoping to beat the afternoon’s forecast ofinclement weather.
There were a few close calls throughout the day.
From reports of players hitting golf carts from 20 metres, to players hitting players from a hundred metres - as well as balls bouncing off star pickets and just missing a couple of players. With all that said, it was great day.
Winners were broken into three grades for men -A, B and C, and A and B for the women.
Winner of A-Grade men with a net 67 was a chicken runner, Brent Morrissey. Runner-up was Keith Flood with net 7, and Patty Cain third with net 72.
A-Grade had 15 players. B-Grade men, consisting of five players, saw Frank Clifton return to form, taking out first place with a net 71. Frank saideverything fell into place for him on the day. Runner- up with a net 79 was Jason Mills, and rounding it out in third place was Blake Cain, net 81.
Now, the hotly-contested C-Grade, made up of 16 players, saw Brayden Ashby string it together with a net 65, disappointing Yogi Hagermann who scored a net 67. Third place was Stan Capewell, net 69.
Women’s A-Grade winner was Zoe Holcombe with net 75. Runner-up was Natasha Noakes with 77, and Julie Shinton third with net 81.
B-Grade women saw Kerry Ward take out first place with net 82. Runner-up was Jan Keppie 84, and third, with net 90, was Lou Dowsett.
