Lynwood Country Club - March 21st

27 players teed-off from 8.00am for our second event for 2019 in fine clear conditions and following a bacon and egg roll plus coffee which was part of the club’s deal. It was unfortunate the club could not confirm availability of carts until 6.00am on the day of play which did impact our numbers slightly. The course in very good order which was reflected in the scores.  Our lefties winner Peter Aroney playing off 14 had 7 pars on the back 9 for a remarkable 23 points.

Prize winners for the day were;

Lefties Winner                 Peter Aroney                         41 points
Runner-up                       Warwick Stanwell                38

2Ball Winners                  John Gallie and Martin McGhee               45 c/b
Runners-up                      Craig McHatton and Paul Meyer               44

Nearest the Pin:              Terry Williams

The Tony Barr annual point score event:

Mangrove Mountain V Rest of the World Trophy

Marshall White has kindly donated a putter to be mounted as a trophy for what is potentially our most prestigious event outside the Championships, Mangrove Mountain V Rest of the World. Accordingly, we are looking for a creative name for the trophy. I therefore appeal to the membership to come up with something suitable. We look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Something to ponder

Four old men went into the pro shop after playing 18 holes of golf. The pro asked, "Did you guys have a good game today?"

The first old guy said, "Yes, I had three riders today."
The second old guy said, "I had the most riders ever. I had five."
The third old guy said, "I had 7 riders, the same as last time."
The last old man said, "I beat my old record. I had 12 riders today." '

After they went into the locker room, another golfer who had heard the old guys talking about their game went to the pro and said,
"I have been playing golf for a long time and thought I knew all the terminology of the game, but what's a rider?"

The pro said, "A rider is when you hit the ball far enough to get in the golf cart and ride to it."
