Great stuff from the Cheeky Chippie as he powered through the handicap target by a whole 5 shots that are certain to bring the bar down a bit. Good solid scoring over the front 9, finishing with a birdie to make it 22 out. The 6-5 finish must have felt like a bit of a disappointment but 19 points speak for themselves. The Xmas tree is a bit of a give away and Arlo has put on a spurt of growth meantime.
By my reckoning Andy’s birdie on 15 should have been worth 4 points not the 3 recorded, so if true means he should have been joint second with Danie. I’ll leave you lads to sort that one out. Back to Andy, a slow start of 1 point on the first led to a barrage of 20 on the next eight holes. Pity about the 11th otherwise the top spot beckoned.
As for Danie, well, a level par round of 70 is just fabulous, not a 6 to be seen on the card, one-over going out, birdies on 17 and 18 to make it one-under back, 40 points total.
Then Gary with 21 points on 7 holes from the 7th, including a birdie on 9 to match playing partner Martin’s. That gave a share of what now seems to be 4th place with Simon B, whose 22 out was 5 x 2 and 4 x 3.
Colin is the only mover in the eclectic, knocking another 1 off with a well aimed birdie at 7. Mark moves one further ahead just to show who’s boss …
… and in the handicap eclectic too, with Colin moving into clear second place.
Best front nine : Martin and Simon with 22 from Andy with 21
Best back nine : Danie with 21 from Martin, Arlo, Gary and Andy with 19
Best gross : Danie with 70 from Mark with 78
And remember, just 4 rounds to go for this summer league.
