Winter Competition Rd 5
Louise Williams’ score of 31 points won the Stableford competition, beating the Lady Captain on the back 9, and putting her in third place overall in the Princes’ Eclectic.
With one round to go, Lia Donath maintains her lead in the Princes Eclectic on net 72 with Julie Smith in second on net 74Â½.
This was a non-qualifying competition for handicap.
After two months the Winter Competition resumed and following Sunday’s round, Gurpal Sekhon is the new leader, four ahead of Julian Diamond.
But the undoubted star on Sunday was Osman Chaudry who scored an astonishing 45 points, 7 points ahead of 6 competitors on 38. Well done to Osman.
Another non-qualifying round but the handicapping committee will take note and employ Clause 19 adjustment should such form continue.
In the associated Eclectic on Prince’s, Toby Hunt decided it was time to declare his hand, jumping straight to the top of the leader board with 61, just one ahead of Kerry Sergeant with Dave Williams and Ian Smith strategically poised a point further back.
Four ball Better Ball
Clubhouse curiosity was raised when at least three pairs posted 37 points on the makeshift â€˜leader-board’. Processing of results confirmed via back 9/6s Ian & Julie Smith to be victors from Peter & Sheena Harrington, Jon Cooper & Richard Owen and John Ahad & David Keen.

Stableford Sweep & Team Event (L)
Consecutive Sundays saw the ladies playing another team event. This time where one score counts on holes 1-6, two scores on holes 7-12 and three scores on holes 13-18.
The team consisting of Trish Mulhall, Jan Oliver, Maureen Slade & Julie Smith scored really well (according to Julie Smith) and won with a total of 77 points. In 2nd place, on 68 pts, were Doreen Dolby, Lia Donath, Jayne Maxwell & Cheryl Woodhouse.
Playing in the same early game, Vic Wadley and Stan Potts spurred each other on to take the first two positions recording 43 and 40 points respectively. Stanley Hunt continued his new found 2007 form, piping Peter Harrington into 3rd place with a count back 23 point back 9 and 39 points.
Students of the Rules of Golf will observe Phil Flanagan’s Rule 6-6d infraction and resulting disqualification via the hyperlink.
The competition of the day was a “yellow ball” team event Stableford. Players play in teams of four and, within each team, player A’s scores count at holes 1, 5, 9, 13 & 17; player B’s scores at holes 2, 6, 10, 14 & 18; player C’s at 3, 7, 11 & 15 and player D’s at 4, 8, 12 & 16.
The winning team was Doreen Dolby, Jayne Maxwell, Di Jackett & Trish Mulhall with 31 points. In second place on 29 pts were Jan Oliver, Lia Donath, Rosalind Lake & Jayne Maxwell. Please note that Jayne did not tear herself in two to play in 2 teams – Jan & Lia were only a 2-ball so two players were chosen at random for their scores to count in that team.
Consistent fine play saw Richard Owen the winner with 40 points, one better than Messrs. Bennett, Hunt, Wright and Smith. John Bennett finished strongly with birdie, birdie, and Stanley Hunt struck New Year form.
