Pairs competition sponsored by De Vere

A clear warm sunny evening and the chance to win € 10,000 meant that we had a very good turn out for the competition sponsored, very generously, by De Vere and thanks to David Naughton and his team.

On the evening with the rough now being cut back there were some very good scores. Dave Hopwood and Patch Lowe won on countback with a score of 22 points from Craig Ferrera and Merve. Simon Baker and Tony Nightingale (making a late start to his season) came third with 21 points.

The nearest the pin went to Craig and the longest drive went to Steve Brown who beat our current man in form Johnny Hill. For the putting competition it was again Johnny Hill who had the chance to putt for a €10,000 prize after qualifying by holing all three of his putts. Johnny then unfortunately left his big money putt short just as we were all getting ready to have a big drink on his bar bill. For the drinks it was left to Andrew Paton to kindly offer the beers to celebrate his birthday.

Our thanks to Stefano who was our starter for the evening.

We had two guest pairs both from the Golfaholics and it was the pairing of Pat Hutchines and Yun Min who just beat Andy Ferns and Sean Nevin to the winners rostrum and who proudly accepted their Frogs shirts and balls. The pair of pink balls went to Joe Lister and Tony Whiteman with 12 points.

Next competition is on Tuesday 3rd July at Junglinster where the starter will be Woodge.

Thanks again to De Vere for their generous sponsorship of the evening.

Results from round 7 of Race to Grand Ducal

The weather was wet and windy if you teed off early, from 6pm onwards it was lovely though….hope you early golfers have dried out….

Ernest (our starter) took the big prize on countback from Del Boy with 19pts, and Steve Brown collected third prize on 18 pts. Fantastic scoring, the handicapping agency apologise profusely for this outrage, their cards have been marked!

Longest was Jess and nearest was Steve B…well done to the prize winners, and a big thank you to our starter and our beloved sponsors….all hail Citco!!!

Round 8 is 27th July (YES IT IS A TUESDAY) and Craig Lambourghini Ferrari will be the starter….

Current status at the top is;
Jess leads by one point from Frank Maitry with Johnny Hill a little short of the mark….the rest of us have some work to do (Johan – i mean golf) if we are to catch these boys!

SHRM WORLD MATCHPLAY

Jerry Grbic is thru to the Semis, well done…his 8 points on Wednesday night was more than enough to knock out Johan.

He will be joined by;
Monty or Gillies.
Johnny Hill or Uncle Merve.
Del Boy or Paul Goes.

The SHRM golf balls are certainly producing some excellent scoring, no need for Pro V 1’s next year Bart !

Bart our (quiet, shy and nearly retired) sponsor is offering a chance of a lifetime to the winner, his executive cottage in the wilderness of Newfoundland….suitable for good golfers and flyfisherman, (who have all been knocked out).

The trophy is just a further reward to the all conquering champion, and Monty is bidding for a repeat of his 2009 success.

de VERE PAIRS

Next week sees the FROGS / de VERE Pairs event….we have a strong turn out with some more Golfedoutalcoholics threatening to play (I will ensure society handicaps are adhered to)….still some early tee times available, although watch out for wind and rain between 5pm and 6pm!

Thanks to our new sponsors….WOODGE is unavailable to defend his halve of the title, so who can wrestle the trophy from the 8 times champions Steve the Daddy Kaiser? (Not me, am playing with Merve).
