Club Championships: The final round of our 2016 Club Championships was played last Saturday 26th November. Congratulations to our new 2016 Club Champion and A Grade winner Tyson Finn on taking out this year’s title (his first) with a 4 round total of 310. His win was set up with an opening round of 70 and whilst he failed to get near that score again over the next 3 rounds, his rivals found it difficult to bridge the gap. Runner up was a previous winner — Andrew Parker who finished five strokes back on 315. Jye Tillack was the next closest contender 7 shots back.
There were some tense moments on the back nine when the margin was narrowed by Andrew Parker, but Tyson held his nerve and managed to get the job done despite having to take an unplayable on his last drive on 18. Well done Tyson, a most deserving winner! It was also great to see past champions Troy Kincaid, Mick Tyers and Darren Cook there to watch Tyson on Saturday along with his own family.
The B grade Championship was won by evergreen Bob Bates with a gross score of 353 while veteran John Morrissy took honours in the C grade Championship with a four-round total of 384.
The Junior Championship was taken out again by Tom Hanson who has in the space of a year moved from C grade to A grade. Look out for him in the future!
The net result winners played over 54 holes were as follows:
A Grade — Tyson Finn (net 212), B Grade — Peter Kerr (net 217) and C grade — John Morrissy (net 219)
