Last Saturday’s final qualifying Stroke round in
the Club Championship, combined with the second,
determining round of the Eddie Dennison Putting
Trophy, drew a slightly more respectable field of 22
tearaways. Least busy with the slow iron was Peter
Friedrichs, whose total of 56 puts over 36 holes won
him immortality, immolating the imagined majesty
of Greg Anderson’s putting prowess, courtesy of
On this day, the A grade ensemble was mon-
stered by Mark Loy (79/67), irked by Ian Michael
(83/72) and bothered by Wild Bill Lokan (82/74).
Those so thwarted were W. Nagle (86/75), P.
Thompson (85/78), B. Michael (94/82) and M.
The popular putting publican Peter Friedrichs
continued his reign of terror over the B grade bunch,
founded on the false syllogism that “practise makes
perfect”, with his unassailable 89/69. That son of
the soil Scott Michael (85/70) claimed second spot
while an apparently re-emergent Bill Berry (91/71)
thundered into third. Left to smell the cape weed
were A. Manuel (91/73), the “welcome back kid”
Digby Addison (98/80), R. Hahn (99/81), M. Smith
(96/82) and D. Taylor (99/84).
Martyn Bell (96/65) crushed the C grade cadre,
leaving John Michael (99/76) to slide stealthily into
2nd and Austin Henstridge (101/77) to claim 3rd
spot. Looking on with heads bowed were J. Boon
(113/78), J. Wilson (1112/84), M. Liptrot (111/87) and
G. Anderson (116/87). Of the 5 Birdies struck on the
day, just those of John Boon and Mark Loy, both on
the 3rd, raised the Captain’s eyebrow.
Nearest The Pins were held by Mark Loy at
both the 3rd and (2nd shot onto the) 13th, Greg
Anderson at the 8th, Scott Michael the 10th, Peter
Thompson the 15th and Ian Michael for his soaring,
spectacular slingshot onto the 2nd green. Golfer of
the Winter points were awarded to Martyn Bell (6),
Mark Loy (5), Peter Friedrichs (4), Scott Michael (3),
Bill Berry (2) and we, huddled in our moth-eaten
dung smocks, just one each.
This Saturday we’ll put on a two-man Pinehurst
punch-up, before The Big Event! Our Club Cham-
pionship 27-hole spectacular, which involves both
those who clubbed their way into the thing plus any
who would care to take advantage of an organised
Sunday round and get some much-needed exercise.
The A grade contestants will tee off from 8.30am on
the 1st tee, the B grade from 8.42am, also on the
1st tee and the C graders, from 9am off the 10th tee.
In essence, we’ll see this: at 0830, Mark Loy,
Peter Thompson and Ben Michael will hit off, fol-
lowed six minutes later by Bill Lokan, Wayne Nagle
and Merv. Hameister. Then come the B graders, at
0842; Scott Michael, Peter Friedrichs and Bill Berry,
followed by, at 0848, Murray Smith and Doug Taylor.
The Ladies A graders then step into the limelight at
0854 – 0900, their B graders at 10.30 and 10.36
and the C grade girls, at 10.42 and 10.48, all from
the 1st tee block. The Mens C grade stoush will
start at the 10th at 0900, when Austin Henstridge,
John Michael and Greg Anderson hit off, followed
six minutes later to the second by Dean Trickett,
Malcolm Liptrot and John Boon.
The ladies competed in a pairs competition,
the Shylie Rhymill foursomes, along with Sports-
Winners of the Shylie Rhymill were the two
blonde bombshells, Cherie Taylor and Josie Thomp-
son, with nett 73, streaking away from their nearest
rivals, Jill Taylor and Moya Hayes second on 76.
The other pairs were close, but no cigar.
Gross winners, thus winners of the Sports-
women’s 4s were Tania Matz and Sue Friedrichs
on a countback from the unlucky runners up yet
again, Jill Taylor and Moya Hayes, both on 103.
Nearest The Pin number 3 went to Louise Mi-
chael, and number 10 second shot, Julia Hoskin
and Joan Anderson.
This week will see the fourth (and final) Par
round, with starters Fay Williams and Chris Hahesy.
New and nine hole players welcome.
Club Championships are on this Sunday, so
please check your tee time on Thursday. BYO lunch
to have after 18 holes, and a barbecue tea will follow
play. All members welcome to play 18 holes and/or
come out for tea to support this event. Men please

The ladies AGM is on September 25 so please
keep this date free.
BALAKLAVA MID WEEK
Fifteen fearless fighters fronted for the tray last
Wednesday but only only one was not wasting his
valuable time and that particular one, sports fans,
was the ever-youthful John Michael who smashed
‘em with his fearsome 44 points. Dennis Goudie
(41) put up some resistance but we must observe
that Dean Trickett’s 38 somewhat lacked vim, verve
Sounding the death-knell of all self-help golfing
videos were the collective, ineffective efforts of the
following would-be auto-didacts: W. Delvendiep
(37), G. Sonntag (35), R. Campbell (35), D. Taylor
(34), W. Goudie (33), B. Stewart (32), W. Berry
(29), Cathy Redpath (28), P. Button (20), J. “Crook
as a chook” Boon (DNF) and Joan Anderson, with
yet another DNF...
Birdies were struck, but none were kosher,
while NTPs were held by Bill Berry at the 3rd, Cathy
Redpath (8th) and Wim Delvendiep (10th).

PRESIDENT of the Bowling
Arm Players Association of South
Australia, Rodney Egge, brought
several of his committee to Clare
Bowling Club last on Wednesday,
so they could demonstrate the
different types of bowling arms,
after the weekly triples tourna-
ment was completed.
They visited early enough
to enter the competition, and
enjoyed the Pie Floater lunch
which is a tradition of this weekly
Rodney explained how many
bowlers, including them, who
were still playing bowls, and
would not be able to without us-
ing an arm.
With Bowls SA authorising
the use of bowling arms without
now having to have a “Letter of
need” from a medical person, it is
anticipated many will continue to
play bowls to a later age by using
It will also save embarrass-
ment when playing on synthetic
surfaces, and dropping the bowl
during delivery causes damage to
the synthetic carpets.
Several bowlers from other
clubs accepted the invitation to
the demonstration, and many
showed interest in their use.
Each of the three types of arm,
approved by Bowls SA, were
shown and any bowler adopting
their use will be entitled to wear
the Association shirt, which was
worn by those demonstrating the
arms. Interest was also shown by
some who hoped they would not
need to use them for another 20
