Putting Competition Finals – Friday 9th October 2015


Perfect weather conditions greeted contestants in the 2015 Putting Competition Finals this evening. On a night where quarter finals, semi-finals, and the grand final were played, it was Trish Owen who powered her way to victory with an awesome display of putting. Trish proved too good for the fellas that stood between her and victory, firstly dispatching Norm Hughes in her quarter final, then John Payne in her semi final, before overcoming a gallant John Eabry in the final. At one stage during her semi-final match Trish knocked in 6 consecutive 1 putters!

In direct contrast to Trish, John had a much easier run to reach the “granny”, not even having to get his putter out of the bag! Unfortunately Julie Howard (injured) had to give John a walkover in the quarter final, and neither Barry Stevens (ill) nor Oscar Harry (on school camp) were able to front for the semi-final. So after winning his first round match only, John found himself fighting it out in the Grand Final!

Congratulations to Trish, she put on a stunning performance!

Results of the finals were as follows:

Quarter Finals:

  • Trish Owen defeated Norm Hughes 3 & 2
  • John Payne defeated Tom Sorrell 2 & 1
  • John Eabry won by walkover

Semi Finals:

  • Trish Owen defeated John Payne 5 & 4
  • John Eabry won by walkover

Grand Final:

  • Trish Owen defeated John Eabry on 18th.

Thanks to Josh for running the event, it was a lot of fun. Next year we plan to run the competition on a single day – probably a Sunday – with all rounds and finals completed on the day. It promises to be a great fun day!

Thanks also to those (Pam, John, Lynda etc) who helped Ros in the kitchen, and to those who made the effort to come along and lend the contestants support.
