Stableford a close contest

By Casey O'Connor

The February end of month medley 4BBB Stableford played in Stanthorpe was a keenly contested affair. Eventual winners, Jake Mills and Casey Leotta, had to withstand a count back to separate them from runners up, Mike McAuliffe and Greg Fraser after both teams returned sores of 48 points for their round.

Nikki Waterworth picked up the ladies’ pin at three and Kay Webb had best approach at 12 while Lorraine Evans held the approach at 1 and Marg Locke the Pro Pin at 5/14.

Not to be outdone, Matt Waterworth collected the men’s pin at three and Allan Accurate at 12. It is rumoured that Ian Pickering’s tee shot at 17 may have hit the flagstick leaving him an easy putt for the birdie and he picked and he collected the pin shot. Scott Constable claimed the prize for the pro-pin at 1/10 and the birdies nest at 15. The pro-pin at 9/18 went the way of Greg Fraser.

The run down went to scores of 46 and better.

The event was sponsored by club members Shaneen and Eric McLellan. Unfortunately, they were unable to as Eric is recovering after a stint in hospital. It is hoped Eric has a speedy recovery and the popular couple return to the fairways shortly.
