Hyland Cup, McCaughan 4BBB Par Championship, A win at Moe, Pennant Player of the Year.
On a busy Sunday we have three new entries to make on our Honour Boards.
Lachlan Thomas put in a top notch performance to defeat Chris Indian in the final of the Hyland Cup. Lachie was hitting them long, chipping in and putting like a single figure marker. Congratulations Lachie, it is great to see one of out younger members prevail in this prestigious event. Congratulations, too, to Chris for winning six matches to get to the final and coming within an whisker of winning this event.
The popular 36 hole event, the W McCaughan 4BBB Par Championship, was completed today too. The scratch event was won by the hot duo of Michael McGrath and Terry Lund with gross 138 (69/69). One under par on both days was great going. They had to play hard to nudge ahead of Michael Thomas and Ryan Thomas on 144. The handicap eent was won by overnight leaders, Stuart Harry and Daniel Jolley, with +13. They added a cool +7 to yesterday’s +6. Champion effort to post +7 when the rest of the field was trying to chase them down.
Last night the 2019 Pennant break-up was held at the Inlet Hotel. Chris Indian was announced as the Pennant Player of the Year after winning 6 of his 7 matches and leading his Division 3 team to the final. Scott Blencowe also won 6 of his 7 matches to come agonisingly close to winning this prize. Special mention to Andy Bassett in 3rd place and Tim McCarthy 4th. Bryan McCorkell and Mark Lafferty also rated a special mention for winning all of the matches they played during the year.
Scott found another way to the winners dais when he teamed with Ian Blencowe, Tony Gedye and Richard Comerford to win the Moe Plate event. This is the first win in the event for Leongatha GC, so thanks to these gentlemen for doing it for the ‘Gath.
