Darren Bartholomew left
the opposition in is wake after tearing apart Victor Harbor with
42 pts to win from Peter Robinson 36 pts. A massive row
errupted after the Chairman Ray McCard forgot to put out the par
three nearest the pin marker on the 5th hole, and his son Darren
playing in the group behind, ripped an 8 iron into within 3 feet
on the pin and dropped a birdie putt - which would have won him
two golf balls - if only the markers had been put out correctly!
WINTER GOLF GETAWAY
Jamie Hill won the
Winter Golf Getaway Trophy at Mildura with rounds of 37 & 35,
from the Captain Craig Bartholomew with rounds of 38 & 32.
ROUND 15 - PENFIELD
tough at Penfield and four players finished tied on net 73.
But it was Dave Bartholomew who had the best back nine which saw
him win out countback to take out the Car Cleaning Guy trophy
from Chris Kellett.
ROUND 14 - FLAGSTAFF HILL
Robinshon shot 38 to win at Flagstaff Hill from Dave Wilmshurst
with 37. This caps off a remarkable three rounds for
Peter. He won at Willunga, then had a shocker at Barossa
to lose the pairs semi, and then bounces back here for a win.
If we didn't know better, we might think an Indian Bookmaker is
ROUND 13 - BAROSSA (PAIRS)
Brothers knocked out defending Pairs Champions Peter Robinson
and Mark Thorhill in Pairs Semi Final action. In the other
semi, McAleer and McDougal thumped Smith and Larcombe.
Grand final pairs action is on 31 Aug. In the individual
trophy, Peter McAleer won with 39 pts on countback from Darren
Bartholomew. Peter has now taken the lead in the Eclectic
Trophy. >> Leaderboard
ROUND 12 - WILLUNGA
Peter Robinson was
in rare form at Willunga to be the clear winner of the
Chairman's Trophy with 41 pts from Brett Stewart with 35.
Peter was only 3 over par off the stick for the front nine.
Peter made an ever rarer appearance at the after match awards,
which was great to see.
ROUND 11 - TEA TREE GULLY
McDougall, inspired by playing for his own trophy (SP Family Trophy),
shot 42 pts to beat Andrew Belton with 41. Kevin Jackson set a
new club record as the first person to win NTP on 2nd shot, and
then not even scoring a point, when he putted off the green!
ROUND 10 - GAWLER
Colin Hincks won his
first trophy in nearly 3 years, winning the Captain's Trophy at
Gawler with 41 pts, in a dominant performance. Andrew Ciechanowicz
created a bit of club history, recording the clubs third hole in
one, acing the 4th hole at Gawler.
ROUND 9 - THE VINES
Colin Hincks was
the indvidual winner on the day with 37 pts on countback from
Frank Powser. But it was the Pairs results where the real
interest lies. All of the higher seeded teams won, except
for the number one ranked Team Lomac Golf (Ray McCard & John
Lomas) who were spanked 5&4 by Martin Smith & Dave Larcombe.
Defending champions Peter Robinson & Mark Thornhill are through,
along with Peter McAleer & Steve McDougall and the Hincks
Brothers who are vying to become the first brother team to take
our the Pairs Chamionshop.

ROUND 8 - CLARE BUS TRIP
It looks like
the beers on the bus inspired Chris "Bubba" Kellett to victory at Clare
with 43 pts, from Darren Bartholomew with 41 pts.
ROUND 7 - MEMORIAL TROPHY
Ray McCard, brilliantly led his team with the best individual
score of the day (41 pts), to defeat the shambolic Captain's
Team at Barossa Valley in the annual Memorial Trophy, which is
played in remembrance of deceased golf members.
