Masa’s Green Jacket…..At Last

 

Masa Takano has had some very good and consistent scores in his six weeks or so this trip and, even though scoring forty points a week ago, has often been beaten to the Green Jacket

But, on his final game before heading home, he’s snared his prize for a very good score on a tough day.

When you mention Treasure Hill and it sends shudders through golfers of all abilities, believing it to be a difficult course.

Most of the 36 starters today set out to prove the point with all but three players returning scorecards they would rather forget.

This course is always in very good condition and so it was today. However, the greens are still not settled in after recent sanding, so tended to be slower than we normally expect here and some tee boxes are still re growing.

Fairways are very good and the rough has been cut. A good and, at times stiff breeze helped to cool things and make for a pleasant day out.

 

“A” flight saw Masa Takano with a great 38 points beating Maurice Roberts, 31 points, into second. Then two of the travelling “Brexiteers”, as dubbed by Maurice, went to a countback on 30 points, with Liam Bennett nudging out Tony Inman for third.

 

“B” flight winner, John Anderson, came in with the second best score of the day scoring 35 points. He rarely wins anything, but the odds shorten substantially when he tees up at Treasure Hill.

Stan Stewart provided the other good score of 33 points for second spot ahead of Paul Chesney on 31 points and filling the fourth place on the podium, Iain Jones won a countback on 30 points.

Our only Lady golfer today had an unfortunate accident with a golf cart, or a part of it, receiving a nasty gash to her leg. Treasure Hill staff took her to nearby Bowin Hospital for treatment. The doctor also discovered she had sustained a broken wrist.

Thank you to Treasure Hill staff and Margaret’s caddie, also to our very patient and helpful bus driver, who took us to hospital to pick up Margaret and husband, Vic, and to Maurice and our fellow bus passengers who managed to occupy themselves while waiting.

We wish Margaret a speedy recovery.

Oh! There was a “wig’. Martin Annable, a “Brexiteer” had a very low score.
