Sixty players registered for the Tuross Head Veterans Golf “Special Par” event on Wednesday 20 January 2021. This “Special Par” event is based on the standard Par game but players scoring below handicap are rewarded with multiple plusses. The game tends to favour higher handicappers.
Winner on the day was Len Rogers with a magnificent score of +9, including multiple +2s and a +3. Runner up was Pauline Nash with +5 with Greg Thornton and Richard Wharton rounding out the major prize winners on +3. Minor prizes went to Neal Watson on +3, Ray Downey, Andrew Gordon, Enid Besant-Ryan and Greg Ware with +2, and finally Robin Green, Annette Manton, Rick Brake, Ron Hanlon, Sandra Hanlon, Bruce Ware and Ian Miller all with +1. Ken Brown won the infamous Bradman award.
Nearest the pins went to Steve Collins on the 4th, Richard Wharton on the 6th, and to Ken Brown and Leonie Snodgrass on the 7th. Des Jackson took the honours with the Accuracy drive on the 5th with a drive resting on the marker string line.
