HS Roberts Foursomes – August 17
With the smell of spring in the air, a healthy field tested their skills in the toughest game of all, straight Foursomes. The well credentialed pairing of Dan Jolley and Stuart Harry won the day’s event with a nett score of 72.5, narrowly pipping Rod Mackenzie & Matt Bowey and Winton Knop & Malcolm Legge, both pairs with a nett 73. Norm Hughes & Craig Hutchinson rounded out the top 4. The top 4 pairs now move into the matchplay phase of the HS Roberts Foursomes board event.
Craig won 2 golf balls for both him and his partner with his nearest the pin shot to 4.30 metres on the 14th.
Peter Walsh did the business on 16 to earn 2 golf balls for himself and partner, Andrew Smith.
A separate stableford competition was run for those left without a partner and a group of visitors, largely from Wonthaggi GC. Scott Williams took to Leongatha’s fairways and greens like a seasoned local to shoot 38 points to annihilate the rest of the field.
