The Growling Swan 06/07
Gerri and the Place-getters!
The Growling Swan welcomed back Peter Soerensen and Bill Steinman, whilst the fully recovered Stuart Rifkin was delighted to be sledged after his enforced layoff.
Our destination was Bangpra, the affectionately named ‘Monkey Course’. Sadly, we hadn’t played there for some time, but it was worth the wait. We played off the white tees. The course was in great nick and the undulating slick greens were immaculate.
As per recent times, it looked like rain would intervene, but it held off and a gentle breeze kept playing conditions very pleasant.
Whilst most combatants struggled in vain on the ‘lightning fast’ greens, the inimitable Gerri Crilly was the surprise packet. Gerri flourished and his golf game was like trying to find fault with Miss Venezuela. He powered to a convincing win with 40 pts. 8 pts clear of his nearest rivals. An amazing effort!
They say you should never reward mediocrity, but the place-getters were very grateful, with 4 players separated via countbacks. Don Richadson was the unlucky one to miss the podium on 32 pts.
1st Gerri Crilly (27) 40 pts
2nd Kevin Waycott (9) 32 pts c/b
