Cheryl's got the Wright stuff
CHERYL Wright blew away the opposition when she led a ladies' charge against all that wind on Saturday with 44 points.
She is now back in first division with that great score and a smaller handicap after beating Jeanette Garner who had 40 points.
Cathy Allen also scored 40 points in first division to beat Gay Christie who finished on 35.
Youngster Matt Craven won A-Grade and not so young B-Grader, Len Dyball both with 42 points took the trophies in the C2G Financial Services day sponsored by Chris Palmer.
Junior Zac Bainbridge had a sub-par score with 41 points to defeat Alan Rayner on a countback while Tony Juillerat was second best in A-Grade with 38.
It was a B-Graders day on Saturday with most of the better scores there.
Like everyone we would sure like some rain but the course is still lush with the irrigators working hard.
Congratulations to our junior carnival organiser Geoff Loveday and his willing band as it was a great success, especially so for our girl champion Tennielle Crossett on her best ever round of 92 off the stick.
Graham Tesch must be cursing having his hair shaved as a little more strength and his ball would have rolled the extra seven centimetres into the cup for a hole in one on Sunday.
Slow play is again being addressed and field out will be adjusted to seven-minute intervals on both tees from Saturday but ultimately it is the responsibility of all players to be just one shot behind the group in front.
Start and finish spaces on your cards are to be filled in to address this problem.
