Great day of golf

What an amazing performance from all the Boorowa golfers who participated in the small clubs pennants golf rounds, involving match play and stableford points competition.

Last Sunday, July 2, Boorowa, as hosts, convincingly triumphed over Bigga by 5 matches to 0 to win the 2017 match play trophy.

Binalong defeated Cloverleigh 4 matches to 1, in a play off for third place, hence Cloverleigh were the unfortunate team to carry home the wooden spoon.

A strong performance each round also enabled Boorowa to hold the stableford side of the tournament trophy with a staggering 125 points to Bigga 60, Binalong 58 and Cloverleigh 21 points.

Boorowa, as host club for the finals, welcomed forty one golfers from the four clubs with some notable performances.

Leader of the pack was Boorowa's Tim Good with his 44 stableford points entrenching him as the top individual prize winner for the day.

Andrew McGrath, also from Boorowa,carding 39 points was more than good enough to earn him the men’s runner up trophy.

Local Boorowa lady golfers, Kate Crisp and Monica Good were too strong for the ladies stableford competition coming first and second with Kate 39 points and Monica 34.

Visiting junior golfers, Jack Patterson, Binalong, 31 points and Wade Picker, Bigga, 24 points were first and second place finishers in the junior comp.

Big hitting Chris Bales from Bigga went home with the men's longest drive trophy while Cloverleigh's Tania Baldwin blasted the ladies longest drive.

Four players displayed the accuracy to earn themselves nearest to the pin trophies.

They were Tania Baldwin from Cloverleigh, Monica and Tim Good, and Russell George, all representing Boorowa.

Thanks must go to all golfers, and there clubs generosity as hosts, for enabling this interesting pennants format to continue.
