June 2015 PAGS Tournament from Eastern Star


June 2015 PAGS Tournament from Eastern Star

Bob Watson’s Gross 72, Best of the Day

The day started off with some threatening skies as a prelude to the June PAGS tournament, this month at the improved Eastern Star. For todays field of 80 odd keen players which included only the 4 Ladies, the weather conditions were mostly fine with a light breeze, while the rain came down for about 10 minutes. With the fairways a little patchy, due to the lack of rain, the decision was made to have preferred lies on the closely mown areas, to help avoid an undeserved bare lie. Eastern Star’s greens have been of a consistently good standard over the past months, and the greenkeeper is to be commended.

As with most months, there is generally a standout performer or 2 on the day. This month it was Bob Watson the clear star of the day with his gross 72, and clear win in A flight with 40 points. Kevin Mackintosh is worthy of a special mention, for his success in 4 technicals, with Ladies winner Rungratree Cox’ (12) 45 points & 3 technicals also deserving of high commendation. Both multiple technical winners limited to the maximum of 2 prizes supplied by the numerous sponsors, including our major sponsors, TBX Barter Exchange & Tudor Group.

The Ladies winner has already been mentioned, with her day’s outstanding best Stablefored score of 45 points. C flight, for handicap 19+, required a countback after Brendon Ruddy (23) & Stefan Lord (19) both signed for 39 points. Brendon just getting the better of Stefan on the back 9, 20/19, while Ronny Walfridsson (28) got the bronze with 38 points. Regular contender Leo Ruuskanen (16) got top spot in B flight, 11 – 18 handicappers, with a solid 39 points, Wolfram Krueger (15) was in the Silver medal position after his 38 points. 3rd spot required a countback, eventually won by Don Head (15) on the last 6 holes 11/10, after both he & Werner (15) signed for 36 points. As mentioned previously, it was Bob Watson (4) leading the way in A flight, 0 – 10, with his strong 40 points. Mika Viljakainen (7) did well to record 38 points for 2nd spot with 3rd place going to Paul Pavloff (7) on 36 points.

Honourable mentions for multiple technical wins on the day should go out to Steve Truelove for his 2 Long Drives in 65+ group, Timo for his 2 Approaches & Jeff Wylie for his 1 of each. It would be remiss of me not to give out a special mention to Shane, who as organisor, supplied a Fenix shirt to all tournament particpants, the gesture and the act, much appreciated by all.

Dave and his team from the Sportsman & the Shenanigans crews did a fantastic job of keeping all the golfers and their guests satisfied in the food & drinks area. We will all look forward to another successful tournament with next month’s event at Greenwood on 29 July. Contact Shane on 0859459689 to ensure your preferred tee time.
