Tropical Golf 30/09
Barry and Dick Big Monthly Winners
It was Big Friday for the Topical Golfers. As happens sometimes, the Monthly Mug and Golfer Of The Month results came on the same day. Some people want their team to win the Ryder Cup, but more important is to hoist your own cup, er, mug in front of all your playing partners. And its also no small matter to say “I was the best this month”. Both were up for grabs this day.
Playing Greenwood B/C courses from the whites, 23 Tropical Golfers headed head out to test their skill at stroke play. Count them all folks, and if you pick up you give up. Patience and course management are more important than usual. Greenwood is in good to very good condition. The only caveat is a few barrels of weed killer would greatly improve the fairways. Dick Warberg had a large GOM lead going into the final day and basically needed a pulse to win, but mathematically the door was open. As for the Mug, its always wide open to the best.
The winning scores were a little higher than usual for so many players at Greenwood, and Barry Elphick (c/h 29) came out on top with a net 70, and found himself the owner of a brand new mug! Congrats to Barry E! Henry Wong (24) was close with net 71, followed by Dave Nicholson (18) with net 72. Maurice Roberts (14) won the net 73 countback group over Dick Warberg (22) and Tom Herrington (20) made last call.

Golfer Of The Month: Dick Warberg basically had to show up to claim the prize but he wasn’t taking any chances with his fifth place finish easily earning his second Golfer Of The Month prize! Give Mr. Warberg a hand. A special thanks goes to Lek and BJ’s Holiday Lodge for sponsoring this event. We all thank you!
