Perfect weather for golf prevailed on Thursday for the annual Wendy Phillips Trophy Day. Wendy was feeling a little kinder this year, sponsoring an aggregate competition in place of a multiplier of the previous year. Many thanks Wendy on that count and also for your generous sponsorship of this popular day.
The event is essentially a Single Stableford in a team of two ladies where on each hole the stableford points of each pair are added together to determine the score of the team.
Anne Newton and Sandra Rigney were the outstanding pair of the day scoring an aggregate of 71 points. The competition was hot between 2nd and 3rd places with only one point determining the result. Jill Downie and Betty Tucker came in with 65 points closely followed by Linda Trusler and Jenny Brown who recorded 64 points.
Eagle on the 6th
Patricia Austin put in an stunning performance on the 6th hole by scoring an Eagle, the first we have seen in a while. Unfortunately, Patricia didn’t have the satisfaction of actually seeing the ball roll in. She decided to try her number 3 wood from 131 metres out in an attempt to reach the green. The pin placement, however, was in the “dip” and the base of the flag not visible. On approaching the green there was no ball to be found until she looked in the hole. Eureka!! Well done Patricia. Captain Jenny Brown presented her with an Eagle Badge which she will wear with pride.
