On yet another beautiful morning in Tuross a good field of 58 players registered for the 2 Person Irish Team Stableford event. Winners on the day were the team of Derek Hoare and Peg Nevett with a score of 34 Stableford points. Runners up were husband and wife pairing Ray and Margaret Downey following closely behind on 33. They in turn were followed home by Chris and Ian Wratten, and Frank Pomfret and Paul Pereira on 29. Balls or chocolates were won by Ian and Jeanette Miller, Rick Brake and Richard Wharton, Kay and Allen McLeod, and Ross Davidson and Neil Mather, all on 28, and finally Bruce Martin and Steve Johnston on 27.
Greg Bush and Geoff Bellingham struggled with their handicaps and were the unfortunate winners of the infamous Bradman award this week. Nearest the Pins went to Noel Downie on both the 4th and 6th, and to Margaret Downey and Wal Williams on the 7th, Margaret’s drive looking like a hole in one prospect until it rolled less than a metre past the hole. Peter McRae took out the Accuracy drive with a very long and accurate drive down the centre line on the 5th.
