Lloyd’s ‘Fairley’ brilliant

Up next for the Men’s Club is the MacDermotts Insurance Agency Waltz which takes place this coming Sunday, May 3.

Well we got away with it boys, another Alberni Golf Club men’s day without rain. Although the numbers of men were slightly down there was some great golf.

First low gross, a 73, was shot by Mike Pechor; second low gross was recorded by Lloyd Fairley, shooting a 76. That was three out of four days that Fairley has been in the money. It must be his playing partner that’s spurring him on.

On the net side of the day Bob Matlock was the low, carding a 66. An investigation is underway on that one. Second low net was Jacques Giovetti with a 67 followed by Don McGowan shooting a 67 (lost on a countback).

Closest to the pins were recorded by Bob Matlock on No. 2 Preben Rasmussen on No. 4, Art Fowler on No. 13 and Gary Korven on No. 17.

In the skins competition on the gross side worth $22.50 each were Mike Pechor on No. 4 and Brian Tall on No. 9. On the net side worth $12 each were Brian Tall on No. 3, Bob Matlock on No. 4, on No. 5 it was Clarke Crowe, No. 12 was Matt Mesic, No. 13 was Art Fowler, and No. 15 was Bill Bjornsen.

Up next for the Men’s Club is the MacDermotts Insurance Agency Waltz which takes place this coming Sunday, May 3. This is a four-man team event. The format is as follows: on hole No. 1 you count the best net, on hole No. 2 you count the best two nets, hole No. 3 you count the best three nets. Then you start over again until all 18 holes have been played.

For example, if you start on No. 11 you would count the two best nets and carry on from there.

Please sign up in the pro shop in your own group or as a single and Preben will place you in a group. The shotgun takes place at 8 a.m. Please try to be there a few minutes before.
