Morris Definitely not a Minor Player!

Andrew Morris continued his good form in his return to competition golf in Stableford played in Keith on Saturday. The weather was warm and the numbers were up as Players turned for the Stabelford, sponsored by Good Country Physiotherapy. The result was a high standard of play as more than one player threatened to take the prize on the day.

The level was set as scores of 36+ occurred in most grades, demanding something special to win the day. Morris continued his consistent style of play, avoiding too many issues to card a day high score of 41 points, taking the day by 3 strokes. The honour for second place in the end went to Willy Little, winning courtesy of a count back from Simon Leek, who went out with 24 points and came back with only 14 to result in 38points. Leek despite the setback of two contrasting nines, won the A Grade from men’s captain Tony Richman, finishing on 36points, while Little took out the B Grade, ahead of Daniel Rayson on 37 points and Mark Wachtel on 34 points. In the C Grade, apart from the Morris effort, Don Cook on 35 points and Bob Standley on 33 points filled the major positions on the scorecard. A good contingent of Ladies also turned out, with Carol Miller taking on the contest with 35 points, two ahead of Gill Brook.

The sharpshooters were on target as well, Bradley Sherriff hitting the closest on the 4th and 9th holes, while Barb Little hit the 11th and Bob Dicker the 14th holes. The fast greens proved no major challenge for putting with a number of players rolling in the birdies on Par 3 holes; Steve Gurr on the 4th, Willy Little, Pete Rivett and Bob Standley on the 9th and Shane Cleggett on the 11th hole. To top it all off, Tony Richman also got in the prizes, via the best second shot on the Par 4, 7th hole. The club also welcomed in two visitors on the day in David Leek and Ian Borchard.

Coming up in the next couple of weeks is a Stroke Round on September 5th, followed by a Par Round on September 12th. The Padthaway 18 hole tournament is played on the 6th of September and players also have the chance to go to the Robe DiGiorgio / Coopers Ambrose day or the Holden Scramble at Lucindale on September 18th. In the meantime for the Ladies sees the playing of the Annette’s Home Beauty Stroke Round, followed by the Wagenfeller Honey Stableford Multiplication on September 9thmorris minor.
