Saturday was a great day to host the June Monthly Medal, albeit a bit windy for the morning golfers. A starting field of 82 contested the Telescope Tyres and Batteries/Hankook Masters event with the daily sponsor being SafeTasks QRS Group and we thank them for their continued support of golf in Parkes.
In A Grade the monthly medal ‘podium boy’ was again front and centre with Michael Dumesny firing a very handy 76 off the stick to take out the scratch event but only after surviving a countback from Jack Elliott, who was also striking the ball well.
Others in contention were Blake Parker on 77 and Ben Howard and Wayne Parker 1 stroke further back. In the nett event Ben Howard led the field in with his 69 too good for runners up Blake Parker and Jake Thompson both on 70. Wayne Parker was again trying to get into the trophy hunt 1 stroke further back with the unlucky Robert Rae.
This Saturday is the 18 Hole Medley Par Event Sponsored by Col Fletcher Ford and Kia and the Cooke Cup in conjunction with the third and final round of the Frank Donnelly Trophy.
