4th Hole


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.

On the 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.

The 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. 

On the 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.

Peter Robinson and Warren Smith are the 2016 Pairs Champions after defeating the Hincks Brothers in the final at Willunga.  It is the second time Peter has been pairs champion.  Third place was won by Randay Wallace and Frank Poser after easily accounting for Ray McCard and Chris Kellett.  Best individual score on the day was Waye Best with 37 pts.

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 week.

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.
