ROUND 21 - SINGLES FINAL CLASSIC
Darren McCard is the 2016 Singles Champion after a thrilling and
epic final against Randy Wallace at Murray Bridge. Both players
struggled on the front nine, but lit it up on the back nine in
an intense battle that could have gone either way.
7th hole, both players hit great drives, but carried too far
into the hazard running across the fairway. Whilst both
players were able to play their ball out, but Randy forget it
was a hazard, removed a twig covering his ball, and after
realising he called a penalty on himself. This cost Randy
the hole and he should be commended on his sportsmanship.
Darren got it to 1 up after nine, after Randy's ball
unluckily hit a tree and could not be found. Althoug
Darren did all he could to scrub the hole, he luckily scored a
point to win the ninth hole. Holes ten and eleven were
halved. Randy got it back to all square after he played
well on the 12th and Darren did not score. Both players
played pretty well on the 13th and 14th for halves, for the
score to remain all square standing on the 15th tee.
15th hole turned out to be decisive. Randy hit a nice
drive on the fairway, but Darren went way right (he says
intentionally) and finished on the 16th tee. Randy's first
chip was not good, but his second was brilliant to set up an
easy par putt and put him in the box seat to win the hole.
Darren was faced with a difficult chip of about 25m. He
had to hit under trees and over a small mound with thick grass,
that was sure to catch and stop the ball before it got to the
green. Darren announced to his playing partners that his
only option was to intentionally chip the ball on to the cart
path, so that the ball would take a hard bounce, and then up and
over the mound on to the green. Captain Dave Wilmshurst
openly laughed at this suggestion and said "Who the hell do you
think you are, that is ridiculous". Well, just like the
priest in Caddyshack, the gods were smiling on Darren as he
chipped his ball into the air, it bounced on the paved cart
path, bounced over the mound, and on to the green 6ft from the
pin. He drilled the birdie putt to go 1 up.
Darren had a par putt on the 16th to go 2 up, but the downhill
put shaved the hole and just kept rolling. He
missed the return putt, but still
halved the hole, leaving Darren 1 up going to the 17th.
No player had been more than 1 hole up all day, and the
final had already turned into a classic.
par 3 17th the pin was placed behind a bunker, making the tee
shot very important. Darren hitting first, hit a 5 iron
that sailed way up into the air, and somehow it managed to just
carry the bunker, ending up 14ft from the pin. Randy
played a poor tee shot ending up 10m short of the green, but his
chip on was magnificent, rolling just past the hole, leaving him
a 9ft par putt. Darren's birdie putt to win was not great,
finishing a foot and half past the hole. Randy's par putt
to pressure on Darren was very good and looked in all the way,
but it just moved a little right at the end to just miss.
So, it came down to Darren's short putt for par and to win.
Darren did not look confident and it looked like the final might
go down to the 18th. Battling nerves and mosquitoes,
Darren's putt found the centre of the hole, and that was it,
Darren winning 2 and 1.
The best overall
individual score of the day, was Geoff Rigby with 44 pts, a
remarkable 11 points ahead of the next best scores of Martin
Smith with 33.

ROUND 18 - VICTOR HARBOR
Peter Robinson chipped and putted brilliantly, to shoot 39 pts
and win the Fourth Ave Deli Trophy. In the only singles
match play semi final, Darren McCard played solidly (for a
change) to defeat Campbell Sutherland 7 and 6, to move through
to the final and he will play the winner of Colin Hincks v Randy
Wallace, who will play their rescheduled semi final at Penfield.
In breaking news, the committee has just received reports that a
member smashed his pitching wedge against his buggy in
frustration, after a terrible approach shot on 18, and his golf club
snapped in half. We can't reveal the identity of the
alleged player at this stage, but we have let Drummond Golf know
that Colin McPhedran may be paying them a visit during the
ROUND 17 - MOUNT BARKER
Miserable conditions greeted golfers at Mount Barker and play
was called off only after handful of holes. No
results were awarded. The singles semi finals will be
replayed in the next round or so.
