Gary Wins Medal!

At Royal Yea Saturday 20 men contested the Monthly Medal under grey skies and a cool southwesterly wind. The rain held off to allow “The Prez” aka Gary Pollard (10) to salute with a great round of 79 nett 69. Brendan Chenhall (10) finished with the same score but was relegated to second place on countback. Bill Dredge (19) took out 3rd with 72 nett and the very consistent Brian Simmons (10) 4th with 73 nett. 
Gary Pollard also collected NTP on the 2nd hole. The putting competition was award to Brendan Chenhall with 23 putts on countback from Gary Pollard with the same total. There was a keen tussle for the Club Award with John Tanner, Brian Preistly and Phil Armstrong all posting worthy scores but Greg Clements won the the day with 109 nett 93. 
The Ladies Par event saw Judi Newman return to form with -3 to win from Christine Simmons on -5. Christine didn’t go home empty handed winning the NTP on the 2nd hole
To cap off a very successful day The Prez not only won the $2 off the Captain but also won the $100 Chooklotto leaving everyone in awe of his ability to salute under all circumstances.

President Gary Pollard
