• Men’s Golf Column for week ending 20/3/2016

  • The March Monthly Medal was fought out on Saturday with a smaller than normal field taking to the course however the scores were still impressive.  Sibling rivalry was rampant as the two Sheahan brothers, Dion and Dennis, were battling it out for the top honours. It was a close call with Dennis winning the medal with an excellent net 67 score. Dion fell just a couple short on net 69. The Division 1 winner was Stephen Daykin (17) with a net 69 with runner up Dion Sheahan (13). Medal winner Dennis Sheahan (21) topped the field and Division 2 holding out Bill Taylor (20) with a net 72.

    As mentioned last week the overnight sensation, twenty years in the making was Bob Speed who this week on Tuesday absolutely blitzed the field shooting his best ever score of 81 off the stick to win with a net 62. Everyone at the club knew about this score, mainly because Speed made a point of telling anyone nearby. Alas the lofty heights achieved meant that the feet were no longer firmly on the ground and scores on Thursday and Saturday were more mundane. Second to Speed on Tuesday was Brendan Egan (22) whose Net 69 score, although good, was no match.

    Thursday, the traditional Stableford competition continues to push players to achieve high scores. Last Thursday was no exception.  Division 1 was won by Stephen Daykin (17) with a great score of 41 points on a count-back from Roger Eddy (8) also on 41 points. Division 2 was taken out by Mike Irwin (26) with an impressive 42 points from Adrian Smith (21) who continues to perform with 41 points. Gold course winner for Thursday was Ron Britton (33) with 39 points.

    Pro-Pin winners for the week were Bill Taylor and Ian Clarke and the multiple nearest the pin winners for the week were Rod Sargent and Freddy Rogers.

    The first round of the NEDGA Pennant season was held at Yarrawonga/Mulwala with the Mansfield Scratch Pennant Team playing Chiltern. Unfortunately Mansfield went down 2 to 3 with Mark Bettany and Brad Grant picking up wins.  Special mention goes to debutantes Rod Sargent and Oli Pearson, together with Tony Pridham who all put up a good fight on the day.

    The US PGA Tour is preparing for that spellbinding final day shoot-out at the US Masters.  So too is Mansfield Golf Club.  A “Masters Monday” event is being held at the club starting at 6am on Monday the 11th April 2016.
