Zac Kelly's game clicked into gear nicely on Saturday as he fired four under par to run out a convincing A grade winner in the S & K Mann Carpet Cleaning August monthly medal sponsored by Peter Woods and Associates Chartered Accountants.

Making the most of the calm conditions, Kelly blitzed the field to claim the A grade double, winning both the scratch and handicap awards.

His 67 off the stick equated to 67 nett in a very fine performance.

Those at the club whom have played with the young star have been expecting a performance like this since he arrived from Mudgee.

Tony Lock put in a very strong performance to claim the B grade double.

Lock fired 79 off the stick to win the scratch.

His 79 gave him a nett score of 67 to also win the handicap.

C grade was also taken out with a double.

Chris Goodie shot the best scratch round in the division with a solid 89 off the stick.

Playing off a handicap of 20, Goodie recorded a nett 69 to take the handicap prize as well.

The fact that six other players either bettered their handicaps or played to them was testament to the calm conditions.

Rod Kiley scored 69 nett, while David Stevenson, Brian McGee, Kyle Hutchings and Richard Hamilton all scored 70 nett.

Warren Blatch played to his handicap with 71 nett.

John Pearce, Rob Lea, Mick Kelly (Mudgee) and Joe van Opynen each had 72 nett.

Mitch McGlashan finished nearest on the harvey Norman 11th hole at 215cm to win the nearest the pin and the money hole awards.
