Saturday Ladies Report

Firstly a huge congratulations to Nicole Mancer scoring her second hole in one this time on the 11th.

Using a hybrid 4 club, it was a straight shot that looked good all the way but unfortunately her playing partners did not see it once it landed but it was thought that it would be bloody close. No sign of the ball when they got to green, a check over the back, nope!. Maybe check the hole - yip here it is! The yell out from one of her playing partners did not give too much away to the rest of us who carried on merrily thinking someone had chipped in for a two! Well done Nicole was good to see you back on the course on Sunday, keeping your head down!

Again lucky with the weather with the rain holding off.

We played LGU and Home Pennants, the third round of Bleakley Tray and first round of Foreman Trophy. Winner of the first division was Andrea Fraser with Nett 74 and Kath Alvis took out the second division with Net 76. No twos but the $10 voucher went to Nicole after her hole in one on the 11th.

Winner of the Bleakley Tray was Lesley Elliott on count back from Joy East.

Next week if the first round of Strokeplay and the starter is Fiona.

Mixed Top Dog Another day without rain, we have generally been pretty lucky with our weekend golf.

Six pairs playing in the newly revamped mixed top the year where rather than matches played against each other, the format is variations ambrose golf with nett score counting each week. This week we played Foursomes. Let's just say some of the players were having to play shots they would never normally ever play in their own rounds so made for some interesting moments all round.

The Mita's and the Mancer's kept if a family affair sharing the best nett's of the day. Still three more rounds to go where the lowest combined nett will decide the winner.

This Sunday we play Canadian Foursomes.

To write down your personal notes is a very good way of improving. The previous Lesson on Pitching, when you are learning your gears, write down the distance of each gear.

When you practice hitting 20 balls with your 8 iron find the average distance, then write it down. This becomes your standard length. Do the same with all your clubs. When you play a strange course, having your list of distances will be a great help in club selection.

When-ever I give a Lesson I write it down for my “Rising Stars!!” for them to take away & hopefully add to. Every week watching the world stars the first thing they do when they are walking after the tee shot is pull out their personal notes & say “what do I know about the next shot ??”

Keep Well & Stay Safe

Good Luck & Good Golfing.

Professional John Garner.
