Saturday December – Monthly Medal, Stroke & Putts
A strong field teed up for the final Monthly Medal of 2019. With the expected temperature well into the 30sC the club’s Extreme Heat policy was activated and play began at 8.30am. The warm air saw all players gain good distance off the tee and the hard fairways meant shorter than usual approach shots; correct club selection proved vital and many players found themselves “over the back” facing very difficult chip shots to get back on to the green, With a few irrigation problems solved during the week the greens were again in good nick and putted with good speed and little movement. On a warm, sunny morning the results were;
Winner and December Medalist; Chris vanDerVliet – 93/28/65 from Mick Nicholls Jnr – 84/17/67, Keith Hocking – 99/28/71 & Andrew Laing – 94/19/73
Women’s Winner; Pam Drummond – 107/32/75
NTPs; 15th – Liam Hocking
Least Putts; John Laing – 28 C/B from Mick Nicholls Jnr.
