Another great day on the links. Sunny and warm conditions make for some good golf.

Another great day on the links. Sunny and warm conditions make for some good golf.

Cory Nielson had the game of the day shooting a 75 to capture 1st low gross, second low gross was carded by Brian Tall coming through with a 78. Great games gentlemen. On the net side of the day Bob Matlock shot a 66. Some, find it strange that Bob keeps winning on the open days. I hear there is an investigation under way. Second low net was Don McGowan shooting a 69.

Closest to the pins were recorded by Darrell Van Os on No. 2, Hans Gaelsloot on No. 4, Cory Neilson on No. 13, on No 17 it was Jim Proteau. Doug Grears pocketed $ 32 for the Charity closest to the pin on NO. 7.

In the gross skins competition worth $15 each were Brian Tall on NO. 2 and 7, with Jim Proteau winning on No, 11

In the net skins competition worth $20 each were, Tom Hennesey on No. 13, and 16 Gord Unger on No. 2, Phil Anker on No. 4 and Brian Tall on No.7 There were no money pot winners on Sunday as all par 3’s were halved.

Next Sunday is the Pacific Chevrolet Stableford competition.

The format is as follows.

Better than an Eagle you get 4 points, 3 points for an eagle 2 points for a birdie, 1 point for a par, 0 points for a bogie, and minus 1 point for a double bogie or worse. This is an individual net event, every man for himself. The shotgun start happens at 8AM try to be there by 7:45 so you can get to your assigned tees on time. Please make up your own foursomes or enter as a single and Bruce or Brian will put you in a group.

Just a reminder gentlemen, make sure your card is completely filled out and   you enter your score after every round played. Ensure that the ball is played down, no improvements.
