Heavily scarified greens still failed to curb
the spree of high scoring at the Loxton Golf
Andrew Hume backed up his personal best round
of 69 late last year, with another great round of 70 on
Playing off a handicap of three, his round included
five birdies and an eagle.
Hume started by just missing an eagle on the first,
settling with a tap in birdie.
He birdied the second and birdied the ninth to go
out in 21 points.
On the tenth, his four iron approach shot finished
on the edge of the green, which he followed up by
sinking a fifteen foot putt for eagle.
Sadly, he came unstuck on the eighteenth. Going for
a personal best of 68, he putted too aggressively and
dropped two shots with a 'scrubbed' hole.
It was still a fine round, and continued the trend of
low scoring over the past two months.
Since October 21, there have only been five win-
ning scores below an adjusted stableford score of 40,
with the average winning score being 41½.
Kerrin Williams took Saturday's women's event
with 38 points. It was a remarkable result, given that
she plays infrequently.
Williams makes a habit of playing well, despite
spending little time on the course -- she also won last
year's Loxton Open after limited practice.
Mid-week golf saw Alan Ling score a comprehen-
sive victory. His 42 points was all the more remark-
able, as the event was played on greens that had been
heavilly scarified the day before.
Jenny Patching was the best of the women with 27
points, while Tom Edwards and Tim Pannell were the
best pair in a two-ball ambrose played on Sunday.
Saturday stableford -- Men: A. Hume 41, P. Richardson 40,
T. Arndt 40, S. Harris 39, W. Skinner 36. Nearest the pin: 2nd
P. Moller 21 cm, 12th S. Harris 405 cm, 15th J. Sawade 840

Sunday two-ball ambrose -- T. Edwards and T. Pannell 30
and one eighth, Y. Tatt and S. Patching 31 and one eighth, P
and D Harman 32 ¼.

Cyclists vie for crit race
A small field of cyclists competed in the
Monash criterium last Tuesday.
Lower numbers, due to members being at the
Tour Down Under in Adelaide, meant that the
handicapper had a challenging task and the grades
were not the same as usual.
Matt Benson and Lee Rasheed were first in the A
and B grades respectively, while Ruth Strout was the
C grade winner and Tyler Stevens was the victor for
the D grade.
Gordon Lawton gave his younger D grade
opponents a generous handicap, with Stevens getting
a two and a half lap headstart and Lachlan O'Brien
a one and a half lap lead.
A grade -- M. Benson, S. Pitman, K. Ridley, A. Boase.
B grade -- L. Rasheed, L. Stevens, D. Robinson, G. O'Brien
C grade -- R. Strout, A. Ylia, T. Ridley.
D grade -- T. Stevens, G. Lawton, L. O'Brien (DNF).

They are now equal on points
with Waikerie and Loxton RSL at
the top of the table.
