Lower Great Southern Hockey
Lakeview Golf Club
It was a challenging day and at the 36th hole Stephen landed a 20 footer to win the Championship for the 2nd year in a row. The men's B Division, played over 27 holes was won by another even younger gun, Lee Smith defeating Bob Hannah 4/3. Bob, gallant in defeat, after driving Lee around the course in his buggy - next year Bob may wear him out and make him walk!
The Ladies followed the men as all good women always do (so the saying goes) and the score after 9 holes saw Tamara 7up. Davina, the wildflower expert of the course, just didn't want to miss any wildflowers in the bush and on all but 2 holes achieved this feat. Things quickly changed with Davina deciding that if she was going to win this comp she need to lift the standard and this she definitely did, by only being 7 down after 18. After a nice lunch, with husband Eric supplying Pizza for his wife, Davina continued to burn the course rarely going off the fairway with her drives with the 3rd 9 holes seesawing with many chances going begging by both players. Davina actually having a 46 off the stick for this 9.
The final score saw Tamara winning on the 12th hole - 8up. Congratulations to all players and thank you to Eric who came to watch everyone hit off and took the photos. The afternoon competition was won by Ronnie Ball, runner-up Liz Dare and Gross Cheryl Snell. The men by Howie Ward, runner-up making another appearance George Bartram and Gross Eric Gossage.
Next week 17 September will be a Combined Stableford with players vying for the Wagin Meats sponsorship - Meat packs which are proving very popular. And last but not least the following Saturday is our Closing Day.
