PLACINGS: Second placed Libby Furner and third placed Bev Pedlar.

THE final women’s monthly medal round at the Mount Gambier Golf Club was conducted last week with the six winners from the competitions held throughout the year.

The winner will be announced at the club’s AGM to be held next.

Played in conjunction with the Medal of Medals was the putting competition final consisting of the six winners of the monthly putting competitions held throughout the year.

The stroke event saw 33 women compete in fine weather and the course and greens were in good condition.

Playing three shots under her handicap off 19, Karen Forster won the day with 89 off the stick.

Her first hole set the tone of the day with a birdie-4 and she finished with 43 on the front nine and 46 on the back.

In second place on a count-back was Libby Furner with 108-36-72 after two consistent nines.

She counted out Bev Pedlar (92-20-72), who had a birdie on the sixth hole and carded 42 on the front nine.

However, the hard, long back nine took its toll and she had eight shots more.

Seven balls were given out in the ball run-down going to Faye Mainwaring, Lyn Hudson, Kerry Pedlar, Carol Smith, Heather Chapman, Jennifer Van Rijtihoven and Denise Harvey.

The Speciality prizes for the second shot into the par 3 16th hole went to A Grade’s Heather Barry,

B Grade’s Di O’Donnell and C Grade’s Chris Morrison.

The Pro Shot on the Par 3 8th Hole was won by Bernie Jennings, earning her 3 balls.

Next week’s AGM will commence at 8.30am sharp, with the election of committee members for the 2021-22 season.

At the completion of the meeting a shotgun start for a stableford 18-hole competition will be played.
