The final summer Monthly Medal was
played at Loxton Golf Club on Saturday,
with Andrew Giles crowned the runaway
winner, carding an 85 for net 68.
Giles’ nearest rival was Matt Maczkowiak, with 89
for net 72. Giles and Maczkowiak played in the same
group and both played exceptional golf.
Consistent throughout the day, Giles went out in 42
and came home in 43. His round included five pars
and he was able to avoid any double bogies.
It was a solid all-round performance, comprising
accurate driving, excellent approach shots and fine
chipping and putting.
Giles managed to get up and down because of his
touch around the greens.
Playing off the same handicap as Giles, Maczkowiak
was slower to get going, taking 47 on the front nine.
However, he made a charge on the back nine, par-
ring the first four holes and finishing with a fifth par
on the eighteenth. He came home in just 42 strokes,
but was unable to peg back Giles.
Sabine Grein continued her run of form, winning
the women’s event comfortably with 95, net 77. She
has been a regular winner over the past 12 months
and Saturday’s win followed her success at Riverside
(Mildura) last week when she was runner-up in the
handicap section of their Summer Open.
In mid-week golf, both Steve Coombs and Marlene
Tyler enjoyed one point wins.
