One wonders whether all those clubs we take in
our bags to play golf just serves to confuse us when
on Saturday, 16 players competed in a Stableford
competition only being allowed to use three sticks!
Club bar manager, Barry Schwartz, won with 40
points from John Bell, 37, with both players being
first to admit they have had far worse scores on
many occasions with a full bag of clubs!
Results of the Hamley Bridge Open Day will be
reported next week.
Another all-star lineup as the Owen Towers Golf
Resort hosted the first round of the Captain’s Trophy
on Saturday. Seven sporting legends made the cut
in hope to advance to the second round and for a
chance to reign supreme in this prestigious event.
Players were mobbed with spectators and a
strong media presence, with the Plains Producer’s
gorgeous photographer, Lisa Redpath, keeping a
close eye on proceedings. Lisa caught all the action-
packed play on camera, shooting some amazing
images that even David Attenborough would have
been impressed with. Treasurer, Ian Freebairn, said
the club has always welcomed press coverage and
appreciates the ongoing support the paper gives to
our local sport week in and week out.
With captain Brett Fitton out with injury and Club
Champions, Peter Freebairn and Bazz Light-Year
Harkness holidaying in the Bahamas, the field was
wide open. Congratulations to president, Peter Sul-
livan, who has taken the lead in the first round with
41 points with an upset win over Champion golfer,
Magic Merv Hameister, with 39 points. The snappy
dressing Merv was leading on the 17th hole but had
to take a penalty for a lost ball, which ultimately lost
him the match. Bad Boy Beaty came in third with
33 points after crushing his handicap last week with
a net 67. Then came King Michael the First, with
a smooth sailing 18 points after playing 9 holes,
winning on a CB from treasurer, Ian Freebairn.
Disappointed club captain, Brett Fitton, had to
retire due to ‘man flu’ complications, but had this
to say, “I tried my hardest, but when your nose
runs further than the ball it makes play impossible!”
Brett will undergo surgery in a few weeks but is
determined to continue playing despite how serious
‘man flu’ can be!
There was no sign of Superman, but the crowds
were thrilled to see self-acclaimed local legend,
Mark ‘Lois Lane’, play his final handicap round.
Not even kryptonite could throw ‘Lois’ off his game,
the long-driving opal miner drilling an easy buck ‘0
five off the stick, what a gem!
Longest Men’s Drive went to the Balaklava
Bentley, Merv Hamiester, with a heroic whack on the
first tee. With course manager, Les Hean, away the
Veterans Longest Drive was left wide open, another
long ball by Merv the Magnificent secured the win.
The mighty ‘Hamster’ wasn’t finished birdying the
treacherous 11th hole and took the nest for the first
time this season. Hameister hit his famous one-iron
down the shaft, leaving it a few feet from the cup.
Merv later said in a press conference, “The shot
was pretty handy, careless though, it didn’t go in.”
President Peter Sullivan and vice captain, super
egg-laying Glen Chooka Ince, did Owen proud by
competing in the Hamley Bridge open last Sunday.
Congratulations to the Hamley club for holding yet
another fantastic 27-hole event and for their terrific
Next Saturday Stroke round, tee-off at 12pm,

Results from Saturday, July 6 – Stableford com-

Apparently it rained everywhere in the metro
area other than Two Wells. Players were greeted
with a fine sunny day and plenty of grass. Stuart
Grigg, playing off his new single digit handicap,
played a beautiful round to come in with 41 points
and a win in A Grade, from the Silver Socceroo
Bobby Hogg’s 39 and Russell Grigg’s 36. B Grade
saw four players all finish with 38 points, with Smiffy
triumphant from Paul Shields, Tim Clifton and Ian
Clark. Steven Kelly was waxing lyrical, you knew
where he was on the course, but this did not stop
him from carving out an exceptional 44 points to
narrowly defeat Garry Farr, also on 44, and James
Weir on 41 in C Grade. Steve had apparently re-
covered from the stress of picking up the slasher
on Tuesday, with the help of his dad and Hoggy.
