Doubles by Peter Dixon and Cody Hando were the highlights of last Saturday’s final Telescope Tyres & Batteries Monthly Medal for the year. In taking out the A Grade double Dixon had to survive a countback over Cameron
Butler on 72, however in the Handicap section for the PJL Group’s trophy it was all plain sailing as Dixon returned a solid 68 nett edging out Wayne Butler on countback.
In the minor grades Colin Barker returned to the winners podium, while Ryan Thornberry edged out Barker on countback to take the Handicap section with 72 nett. In the C Grade it was all Cody Hando as he returned an impressive 86 from his 23 handicap to also take the double with the day’s best nett score of 63. The Veterans medal was won by Richard Hamilton with a 69 nett, while in the Ladies section Lyn Davison with 72 nett, won by two shots.
The day’s final award, the Griffins Leading Edge Putting competition, saw Cameron Butler successful with just 21 putts – the lowest number of putts recorded by a player since the inception of the competition. Ball winners from Saturday’s round saw Dave Harwood top the list with a 65 nett. He was followed by 68 Ron Hetherington and Wayne Butler, 69 Richard Hamilton and Rod Kiley, 70 Gordon Christie, 71 Peter Rowe, Mark Kelly and Phil Bishop, while the remaining three balls went to Tim Lasserre, Cameron Butler and Phil Barnard all on 72 nett.
