Saturday saw the hosting of the Tooheys 2 Ball Worst Ball Stableford under tough conditions with strong westerly winds, a few morning scuddy showers and very cold conditions with 58 fearless golfers heading out.
The conditions did not stop the regular golfing buddies Rob Lea and Richard Hamilton putting in a strong performance to win the novel event with a score of 31 points, winning by a clear 4 points from Jake Thompson and Josh Kearney.
Rob Lea had a solid all-round day picking up the individual honours with a particularly good 37 points.
This score was very good considering only 3 of our best A-graders could shoot in the 70s due to the conditions and the recent renovations of the greens thus indicating how tough it was.
Rob was also the only individual to square or better par in the individual stableford event.
Five players trailed Rob in with a score of 35 points.
The Nearest The Pins this week were:
Idlerite Tyrepower 1st won by Warren Blatch at 120cm, the Griffins Leading Edge 4th by Phil Bishop at 280cm, the Dirt Doctor Landscaping 6th by Peter Magill at 200cm.
The Parkes Readymixed Concrete 9th by Brett Cowling at 605cm, the Harvey Norman 11th by David Stevenson at 158cm, the Westlime 15th Peter Magill at 214cm and the Central West Glass 18th by Aaron Huppatz at 247cm.
So that meant that Peter Magill won the lucrative 6th hole this week.
Ball winners were:
Garry Phillips, John Boyle (visitor), Luke Clarke, Riall Harrison all on 35, Aaron Drabsch, D.Miller (visitor), David Stevenson all on 34.
