ROUND 13 - SINGLES QTR FINALS
It was quarter final action in the Singles Match play event at
Wirrina. In the first match, Randy Wallace easily
accounted for Dave Bartholomew 6 & 5. Match 2 saw a
titanic struggle between Geoff Rigby and Darren McCard.
Darren led all day, with Geoff making a late charge to win the
18th hole and make it All Square at the end. But, it was
Darren that goes through to the next round on superior ranking.
In match 3, Dave Wilmshurst lost the first four holes to Colin
Hincks and he never recovered. Colin winning 5 & 4.
Match 4 between Frank Poser and Campbell Sutherland has been
postponed to a later round. There was one Pairs Match
played between Ray McCard and Chris Kellett versus Warren Smith
and Peter Robinson. The self titled team of
"KellMac" was simply no match for Warren and Robbo, winning 5 &
3. The best individual score of the day was by Kiwi Clem
Bennett who shot a remarkable 42 pts to leave the rest of the
field in his wake. Clem looks like a future super star!
ROUND 12 - SP FAMILY MOTORS TROPHY
Dave Larcombe won his second trophy round in row, winning the SP
Family Motors Trophy at Barossa with 35 pts on countback from
both Peter Robinson and Colin Hincks. Frank Poser had an
ordinary day despite 32 pts and finishing in 4th place.
His golf umbrella was runined and ended up a bin half way around
the course, meaning that he got soaked.
ROUND 11 - CHAIRMAN'S TROPHY
Dave Larcombe won the 2016 Chairman's Trophy with 40 pts at
Murray Bridge, from Darren McCard one point back on 39 pts.
Standing on the 18th tee, Darren had a two shot advantage over
the field, but failed to score on the last hole whilst Dave
recorded a rock solid par and the victory. Sort of sums up
Darren's day. Darren drilled his drive on the long drive
hole, only to see the ball cannon into the long drive flag and
rebound 9 inches behind the flag. Lucky Randy Wallace held
on to win the long drive award. In a sensation, Ray McCard
almost won the NAGA in his own trophy round, only to be saved by
count back to Chris Kellett as both had 22 pts. In the
delayed Pairs quarter final, Dave & Darren Bartholomew got out
to a 3 up lead over Peter Robinson and Warren Smith, but they
could not hold on, with Robbo/Smith winning 2 up. This
sets up two classic semi final matches.

ROUND 10 - PAIRS ROUND 2
In a massive upset, Defending Pairs Champions Dave Wilmshurst
and Jamie Hill have been bundled out of the Pairs Championship
by Ray McCard (Raymond Floyd) and his partner Chris Kellett
(Bubba Watson). The defending champions simply had no
answer to the relentless onslaught, especially when both Floyd
and Bubba get 2 handicap strokes each, on a par 3 ! More
pairs results to come.

ROUND 9 - PAIRS SINGLES ROUND 1
Darren McCard had his best round in three years, shooting 39 pts
to record the best score of the day from Dave Larcombe with 37
pts. Chairman Ray McCard was a late withdrawal due to a back
injury, and one has to wonder, why Darren McCard had his best
round in 3 years, on the same day he did NOT have to take his
father Ray to Golf? Could it be all that golf talk on the way to
the game is having a detrimental impact on Darren's game? You
can draw your own conclusions!
ROUND 8 - PINEHURST AT THAXTED PARK
It was something different for round 8, with golfers put into
random teams of two, to compete in a modified Pinehurst format.
Brett Stewart's fine form continued, combining with Jeff Pike to
win from Warren Smith and last round winner Peter Robinsion.
ROUND 7 - KELLMAC TROPHY
Peter Robinson won the Kellmac Trophy played at McCracken with
41 pts from Brett Stewart who had 40 pts. Brett probably
let it slip, scrubbing the par 3 17th and only scoring one point
on the 18th. The best play of the day belonged to
Marty Smith. Noticing that Dave Larcombe had left most of
his beer on the table (Crown Lager), Marty polished it off
before discreetly existing the building before Dave even
