Stanthorpe golfer Lyle Bryant claimed the September Monthly Medal at the Stanthorpe Golf Club last Saturday. After shooting 84 off the stick Bryant finished the round with a winning score of nett 64. The proof may be in the pudding as the saying goes but in this case it was in the putting. Bryant recently sought advice and tuition from some of the best putters at the club and on Saturday reaped the rewards with an improved performance with his putter.
Junior, Billy Webb, had a good front nine of 38 and not so good back nine but still finished with a score of nett 68 which was good enough to earn the runner’s up spot.
Mick O’Brian had the best putting performance in the men’s competition finishing the round with 26 putts to claim that honour.
The Ladies medal event went down to the wire. Nikki Waterworth and Lyn Ludlow both finished on nett 78. The count back went the way of Nikki Waterworth. Runner up Lyn Ludlow did not go home empty handed. She returned the best gross result, least putts and claimed the approach at 17 for the ladies.
The September medal event was sponsored by Aqua Rural Supplies Remo and Cameron joined players on the course. My spies tell me Cameron took the driver out on the first tee but it then spent the rest of the round in a dark corner in his bag.
Players are reminded that the time sheet for Sunday’s club foursome is on the board. Players should be arranging partners and opposition and entering their nominations.
