Pick on fire at Attamurra

TOP ROUND: David Pick was pleased with his win in Saturday's stableford competition at the Mount Gambier Golf Club.

ANOTHER excellent field, just shy of 100 players, took to the Attamurra golf course last Thursday.

Jim Pegler claimed the $100 pro-shop voucher on 42 points which included an impressive nine three-point holes, while Tony Klug claimed the $50 second place prize on 41.

David Millard, Peter Gardener and David Cameron shared third place on 40 points.

The ball rundown extended to 35 points with a good back nine, the unlucky David Boyce being bubble boy to just miss out.

A special mention goes to club legend Neil Richardson who claimed 38 points, including a four for four on the second hole.

Nearest to pin on the eighth hole went to Mike Atwell, while Paul Kenny put it closer than anyone else on the 16th.

Meanwhile, 116 players gave lined up on Saturday in a stableford competition.

David Pick claimed the round of the day with 43 points.

After getting off to a slow start with three bogeys on the opening three holes the 11-marker then played the next 14 holes square with the card and stood on the 18th tee with an impressive 43 points already in his pocket and the easiest hole on the course to come.

Unfortunately the golf gods are harsh and it was a triple-bogey seven on the last and Pick was unable to add to his tally.

However, 43 points and 78 off the stick is still good golf and Pick claimed the A Grade win as a result, ahead of Tim Driver on 39.

In B Grade Bryce Whicker claimed first place on 42 points, with David McPherson second on 38.

Whicker’s 42 points was a 79 off the stick with a triple on the second and a double on 12.

In C Grade Paul Braithwaite posted 43 points to claim the winners voucher comfortably from Charlie Finch on 38.

Other notable scores on the day included Barry Brook, Mitchell Handford, Stacey Fiegert, Roger Davis and Jack Peacock all on 38 points.

Nearest to pin belonged to Kevin Lennon on the eighth hole and Grange visitor Lyndon Goldsworthy on the 16th.

Most importantly both players rolled their respective putts in for twos.
