South Gippsland Men’s Pennant – Rd 1 Summary & Rd 2 Teams

Rd 1 Summary

The South Gippsland District Pennant Association Pennant season kicked off on Sunday 15 March.

Division 1 @ Woorayl GC – Lost 1-6 Vs Phillip Island

Woorayl GC in Leongatha hosted the day for division one with our opponent being Phillip island. As always the host club presented the course well with freshly rolled greens and bunkers raked before play began. Needless to say the fast rolling greens took some getting used to with ours being freshly cored.

Team Captain Peter Rayson had the pleasure of welcoming three new faces to the team, representing our club for the first time were Nick Barrack, Rod McKenzie and Anthony Sparkes. After winning the toss our pennant manager Dan had the honour of striking the first shot of the season for us.

Nick had the unenviable task, tackling Jeremy  Westaway at the No. 1 position, with President Chris playing regular country week representative Paul Wagner at No. 2. Putting up a great effort on the tight fairways the Island came away with a 6 -1 win with evergreen Rod Brown being our sole winner on the day. A couple of matches could have easily gone either way and we look forward to next Sunday playing Woorayl at Phillip Island. Thanks Dan and Browny for filling in, your efforts are greatly appreciated by all.

  • Dan Poynton Loss 6&5
  • Rod Brown Won 3&2
  • Peter Rayson Loss on 20th
  • Anthony Sparkes Loss 4&3
  • Rod Mckenzie Loss 3&2
  • Chris Leaver Loss 6&5
  • Nick Barrack Loss 5&4

Division 3 @ Wonthaggi GC – Lost 3-4 Vs Lang Lang

Our Division 3 team took on the always strong Lang Lang at Wonthaggi GC.  This contest was extremely tight all day, with 5 of the 7 matches going to the wire.  There were no new faces this season in Div 3, with each player being experienced in pennant.  Dean Brown made a very strong come back to Pennant after 6 months out of golf with various injuries, he’d be most happy with a 7&5 win up front.  The team lost 3-4 with close matches lost on the 19th, 18th & 17th.  It easily could have fallen the other way.

  • Dean Brown Won 7&5
  • Chris Indian Loss 1Dn
  • Brendan Simon Won 1Up
  • Tom Williamson Loss 19th
  • Al Adcock Won 5&3
  • Denis McDonald Loss 5&4
  • Colin Bear Loss 2&1

Division 4 @ Leongatha GC – Won 4-3 Vs Korumburra

Our Division 4 team had the pleasure of hosting against Korumburra.  Thanks to our ground staff who presented the course so well for the other clubs, thanks also goes to Ian Murchie from the Golf Committee for being the starter for the morning. Some new faces presented for our Div 4 team, welcome to Pennant – Peter Jaspers, Mark Anderson & Ian Barlow.  Mark Anderson had a first pennant round to remember with a solid 3&2 win.  Round of the day went to Mark Boler who exclaimed “I dont know what happened!” but scored a massive 8&6 win.

  • Mark Anderson Won 3&2
  • Mark Boler Won 8&6
  • Ryan Thomas Loss 4&3
  • Andy Bassett Won 5&3
  • Ian Barlow Won 2&1
