Super Steve Slays ‘Em 

at Bangpakong Wed  July 11  S/ford

 

Bangpakong Riverside has lived up to it’s reputation of a high (stableford) scoring course, with nineteen of the twenty one starters having 30 points or more on a golf course presented in very good condition.

 

But the most exhilarating display came from Big Steve Truelove with a fantastic 46 points to leave daylight between him and the next two places.

Playing off handicap 9 makes it even more impressive, with a gross of 71. Great stuff.

 

We had to go back through the records for this calendar year to see if this was the highest. Only Derek Phillips’ 47 at Phoenix was better, but Steve joins Colin Service on the second rung on 46 points.

 

Then the next two were no less impressive with 40 points each, which needed a countback between Colm O’Donovan (h/c 20) and Paul Smith (h/c 2) with Colm having the better back nine, to take second.

 

Paul Smith himself is no slouch around a golf course, and his score meant a gross 70, the best for the day, and he came third!!

 

Bob Britton, in a rare appearance at Links ( he lives up the road aways), came in with a very handy 39 points to fill the final place on the podium.

 

Once again one “near pin’ went begging as no-one got onto the fourth green in regulation, but the other three were won by:

 

Jim Galendez (7), John Pierrel (13), Bob Britton (16)

 

Winner …………….Steve Truelove (9)……………46 pts

2nd Place……………Colm O’Donovan (20)……..40 pts c/back

3rd Place……………..Paul Smith (2)…………………40 pts

4th Place…………….Bob Britton (12)……………..39 pts

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)………Colin Smith …..21 pts

Best Back Nine (non winners)………Steve Baker……23 pts

 

With no complaints about the weather, no hold ups on course and a trouble free drive, all were back at Links Bar nice and early.

Presentations seemed much louder today as Steve Truelove was a popular winner and received loud cheers.

Even louder when Phil teased Wayne Peppernell with the “wig”, and he was sure, with his score this was no joke, but slumped in his chair when Phil took it away. Phew!

Gotcha ! Phil came back and Wayne DID wear it…

 

Then it was time for many to turn to watching the State of Origin rugby from Australia.
