Monash Country Club July 25th

36 Players (19 lefties) teed-off at Monash at 9.00am shot-gun start on July 25th in what turned out to be a bright and sunny winters morning. It was great to see the 8 players from Newcastle make the effort to come down for this event.

The course was turned out in great order with the greens typically hard and fast. Based on the scores the course was the winner. However, the two ball team of Mike Simon and Darren Mason (both from the Wakehurst Club) whom I played with put together a fine 47 points.

Prize winners for the day were;

  • Lefties Winner - James Tyson - 35 points
  • Runner-up - Dennis Allen - 34
  • 2 Ball Winners - Mike Simon & Darren Mason - 47
  • Runners-up - Rod Osland & Adam Holland - 41 c/b
  • Righties Winner - John Gallie - 34

Nearest the Pin               Doug Bennett

However, when we collected the NTP pin it included the name J Tedesco. Realising there were a group of footballers playing on the course I approached them explaining that the event was exclusive to the Lefthanded Golfers Association members. James advised that he played golf lefthanded. The group included the Trbojevic brothers, Beaver Menzies Brandy Alexander etc. The boys were still there during our presentation so I presented James with a ball suggesting he might like to join our association.2
