Men’s Pennant – Round 4 wrap – April 7
Three great results for our three pennant teams today.
Division 1 got their season rolling with a 4 matches to 3 win against ladder leaders Lang Lang. In an exciting finale to the day’s battle Leroy Sharrock went down the 19th hole with the teams locked at 3 matches all. Nursing a crook back but still cool as a cucumber Leroy made a par to remember on the first to give Leongatha victory a red hot chance to make the season final. A special call out to new member Dean Kellett pulled on the Leongatha shirt for the first time. Welcome aboard Dean.
Division 3 held their spot on top of the ladder with an exciting 4/3 victory over the strong Woorayl team. Gordon Morrison played his first match in many years and bolted home with an impressive 7/6 win. Garry Rotteveel and Chris Indian were unlucky to lose on the 20th and 19th holes respectively so, all in all, it was a very strong performance by the team.
Division 5 made it 4 wins after 4 rounds with a 4/3 win. With two rounds still to go the Division 5 team have now booked a place in this year’s final. Tim McCarthy won a tight match on the 18th and is now the only player from all three teams to have won his match every week. Andy Bassett was solid when the pressure was on to also secure victory on the 18th whilst the Blencowes both starred with Scott winning 7/5 and Ian coming back to the clubhouse after 15 holes with a convincing 4/3 win.
