Last Saturday, 30 players were treated
to a hand-eye-co-ordination demonstration
which required measurement in femtosec-
onds (a millionth of a nanosecond, which in
turn is a billionth of a second - in a femto-
second a jet fghter fies less than the width
of an atom, but then you knew that). Such
was this neuronal instantaneity byAgrader
Tate Michael that his 38 Stableford points
inched his pater Ian off top spot, aided by
the good Count. Cousin Callum chimed
in with a very handy 36 points to claim
3rd. place. Callum also used the Count to
crush W. Lokan’s bid for glory, then came
D. Hannaford (35), R. Hart (34), R. Lawson
(31) and W. Nagle (28).
In the B grade the letter B reigned
supreme, B for (David) Barnett (40) that
is, who also called upon the good Count to
ruin Rob Veitch’s day. Murray “Smudger”
Smith, despite being a whole year older,
still managed to club a respectable 37
points and claim 3rd. place (and more...).
Left awestruck but reasonably coherent
were G. Ackland (37), R. Carney (32), G.
Sonntag (30), S. Michael (29), J. Michael
(28), Tania Matz (28), R. Hahn (27), D.
Rodgers (26) and A. Leaver (21).
Freshly returned from a leech-salting
expedition in Tasmania, Malcolm Liptrot
(39) was king of the C grade, leavingAustin
Henstridge (37) to belt and bash his way
into 2nd and Dean Trickett (36) to cruise,
sedentarily, into third. There followed a
conga line of the conquered: M. Smith (34),
P. Friedrichs (33), D.Addison (30), M. Keast
(24), Noah Barnett (23), G. Anderson (15)
and Joan Anderson (DNF).
Birdies were struck by Ian Michael on
the 10th and Malcolm Liptrot on the 8th,
while Nearest The Pins were hit and held
by Ron Carney (3rd), Malcolm Liptrot (8th),
Ian Michael (10th), Graham “Emu”Ackland
(15th) and for his second missile to smash
into the 13th. green, Robert Hart. Golfer of
the Summer points were dumped into the
laps of David Barnett (6), Rob Veitch (5),
Malcolm Liptrot (4), Austin Henstridge (3),
Tate Michael (2) and the rest of the feld,
This match was also the second and
fnal round of the Michael Trophy, which
was won by birthday boy Murray Smith
with a total of 75 points. In second place
was Austin Henstridge (75), in third Peter
Friedrichs (70) and in fourth, Malcolm Keast
(40). This weekend we’ll stage a Stableford
from the white tees, waved off by Bill Lokan
then drug-tested by Rob Lawson. On this
day also, the mighty Merv. Hameister will
heave his hurtful hamstring around the
greensward in a desperate battle with a
fully-ft Rob Veitch for the fnal round of our
Summer Cup, while on the next Sat. we’ll
wind up the search for our Golfer of the
Summer. Those of us rushing to the Riv-
erland that weekend will meet in Waikerie
at precisely 11am on Friday 22nd., then
play 18 in the afternoon before heading to
Loxton on Saturday, then Berri on Sunday.
Rob Lawson is still taking ‘phone calls for
this Green Jacket spectacular, so if you
can make it (and we manage to track down
the damned jacket), call the man on 8862

Kapunda hosts Veteran golfers
Thursday March 7 saw 58 players of
the Adelaide Plains and Barossa Veteran
Golfers tee off in a Stableford Competition
generously sponsored by Thorn-Clarke
Wines. The display of Thorn-Clarke
wines was appreciated by all present. An
outstanding play by Brian Lee of Kapunda
scored an eagle for him.
A grade and overall winner was John
Ball of Two Wells with 42 points from J Ryan
(Kapunda) on 39 and D Butler (Penfeld)
with 36. Ball winners in A grade were S
Morey (Gawler) 36, R Volraat (Gawler), A
Kopania (Gawler) and G Jones (Kapunda)
all 34, L Grafton (Two Wells), N Heinrich
(Gawler) and R Hogg (Two Wells) all 33.

each with 39. Ball winners in B grade
were T Dowling (Gawler) 39, D Trickett
(Balaklava) 38, H Jeske (Gawler) 37, M
Reynolds (Barossa Valley) 36, and R Jones
(Kapunda), B Stewart (Balaklava) and G

Nearest the pin winners were J Pengilly

Kapunda (B grade) and V Cozzitorto of
Kapunda (C grade). The winners were
plased to each receive Thorn-Clarke
“Sandpiper” wines as part of their prizes,
and expressed appreciation of the sponsor-
ship. The next competition of the Adelaide
Plains and Barossa Veteran Golfers will be
held at the Gawler Golf Club on Monday
April 8, with players teeing off at 8am.
The closest of the four matches played
was between Alice Parsons’ Worms and
Mary Heslop’s Gnats, with the Worms
scraping through to win 4-25 to 2-24.
Scores were level after two sets, with Alice
and Michelle Williams winning their set,
and Kym Woodroofe and Mary winning
theirs, but the Worms won the middle two,
one being a crucial tiebreaker win to Fran
Henderson and Michelle over Kym and
Sue Nicholson. Gnats’ Sam van Kleef and
Kym won their last set, but so did Worms’
Warren McRostie and the handy Michelle.
The other division two match saw Bec
Houston’s Grubs give Cherie Cleary’s
Slugs a shellacking, 6-39 to 0-9 . Slugs’
Danielle Murphy featured in two 3-5 sets
against opponent Peter Rohrlach, which
were the highest two scores for the Slugs
all night. Slugs David Northcott had a
good hit against Wade Hudson all night,
but won’t mention David’s score with Viet
Nguyen against Wade and Henry Lane!
Viet was horrifed he had to reveal his
briefs! Captains Cherie and Bec were pit-
ted against each other all night and Cherie
tried valiantly, but Bec and her super team
were just too good.
Division one’s Darren Scholz and Jar-
rad Thiele had revealed their daks to Helen
Barry and Julia Hoskin. This was in their
Gators match against Scott McDonald’s
Turtles, and needless to say, the Turtles
won overall 5-34 to 1-14. Well done to
Gators Tanya Greenshields and Darren
who won a tight 5-3 over Jordan Taylor
and Helen, which was a good win. Scott
and opponent, the “Don” as in Veitch, had
a consistent score of two in every one of
The fnal division one match saw Chris
Curnow’s Crocs defeat Pauline Hill’s
Newts, 5-32 to 1-17. Angela Battle flled in
for Where’s Wally Treverton. Angela and
Pauline played a cracker of a tiebreaker set
to defeat Marty Brice and Kirsty Williams, in
one of the sets of the night. But the Newts
jubilations were shortlived, as that was their
only win! Christopher and opponent Paul
McBride had their usual long rallies, as did
Gary Wilson and Colin Mutton.
Only one more minor round match to
go and then fnals. Remember supper and
presentations will follow so please make
an effort to stay that night.

for a comeback this year with
