Today’s Veterans Competition was distinguished by two members achieving the feat of having their stroke round less than their age.
Special congratulations to Ken Doherty and Jim Kennedy who both achieved the impressive ‘stroke-below-age’ score.
Ken (pictured below), playing off 12, scored 40 Stableford Points and was a two shot A Grade winner.
Ken continues to enjoy his golf and is very capable well into his OBE years.
Jim Kennedy also produced the age achievement. Jim is one of the Golf Club’s inspirational members who, into his 90s, leads the field out each Monday and plays to a handicap of 18. Today he turned in a score card with 36 Points that included NTP at the 16th Hole. Jim’s tee shot looked like being Hole-In-One until it just missed the cup and rolled a meter past the pin. Jim is shown below standing by his terrific tee shot.
Thanks Ken and Jim, you are valuable members of our Club.
The best score of the day, 41 Points was returned by Rod Jackson and provided him the B Grade Winner’s Voucher. Rod had two 4 Pointers in the outward nine of 20 Points and surpassed the effort on the back nine with six 3 Pointers. Great day Rod, well done.
C Grade Winner was Kevin Landers with 39 Points. Good round Kevin and it is notable that today’s win extends your Prize List entries to nine since Christmas. Well done on a terrific golfing start to 2016.
Runner Up vouchers went to Max Jessop (A Grade, 38 Points), Dennis Jones (B Grade, 37 Points) and Johannes Janssen (C Grade, 38 Points).
Today provided Max with a second Runner Up voucher in a little over a week and reflects well on the good golf that Max plays.
Dennis takes home his first prize voucher in 2016. Dennis has a long history with Club Banora Golf including playing on winning pennant teams – it’s great to see him in the top bracket of the Leader Board. Dennis is seen below after receiving his voucher at Presentation.
Johannes had a strong first nine that included an outstanding four 4 Pointers. Terrific effort Johannes.
All members appreciate that Vets competition day happens through the efforts of the Captain, Wayne Howlett and the members of the Sub Committee. Golf competition management under the Slope system is only possible with the use of computer processing. Wayne Martlew has capably carried the computer duties that produce the Vets competition reports for most of the past two years. Now that he is about to move into the Vets Captain position, Wayne has transferred computing skills to Dave Harrod who demonstrates considerable understanding with the computer work. Well done Wayne and Dave.
Special mention for the last group players who bring in the NTP cards. Thanks guys.
Check out Wayne Muir’s last group effort at the 16th today. Not good enough to beat Jim’s terrific shot but it looked like a Hole-In-One and NTP chance when it rolled towards the Pin. Nice shot Wayne.
Always great to be part of Monday Vets Golf!
