Our Parkes golfers contested an 18 stableford event on Saturday 25th sponsored by local solicitor Bill Burke. There were 65 players out following the flight of the little white ball.
The winner this week was the ever consistent Bruce Symonds, who even surprised himself with a haul of 41 points. Playing off a 23 handicap he made the best of all opportunities to easily beat his
regular playing partners this week. He played the equivalent of 7 under his handicap on the day which was excellent golf. Next in was Matthew Littlewood, who likewise played 5 under his 18 handicap to score a solid 40 points. These 2 were followed in by Troy Thomson who is gradually working his way back toward his best golf on a 39 point day and Phil Smith again performing well
and returning a 38 point score.
It was unfortunate for some of the golfers but great for the kikuyu when a large downpour occurred late in the day curtailing a few rounds.
The Nearest The Pins on Saturday were –The Idlerite 1 st by Rod Kiley at 459cm, Griffins Leading Edge by Margaret Hogan at 210cm, Parkes Ready Mixed Concrete 9 th by Craig Matthews at 63cm, the Harvey Norman 11th by Troy Thomson, the 17th by Brian Hogan Snr. The lucrative money hole was won by Marg Hogan at 210cm.
Ball winners were Troy Thomson 39, Phil Smith 38, Rob Lea, Jimmy Kuntze 37, Dub Rodgers, Rob Rea, Nym Dziuba 36.
Next Week we have the December monthly medal sponsored by Telescope Tyres / Hankook Masters with the daily sponsor being Kitson Manufacturing Services.
