Hubbard’s only getting better

On a day when the Warburton Golf Club course was giving up yardage and therefore low scores were common, the grand old campaigner of the club’s Wednesday set came out on top.

Allan Hubbard qualified for the bag play-off later in the year, with a bogey-free nett 66 in the Wednesday 6 February stroke competition.

Hubbard is a living example often used to refer to good wine – he gets better with age.

Craig Brown can consider himself unlucky as he snared the runner-up prize also with a nett 66.

Balls extended to 71 and the nearest the pin winners were Hubbard on the third, Ian Garside on the 10th and Kevin Conway on the 15th.

The Patrick clan was to the fore again in this week’s Twilight results, this time with Adam accruing 22 points.

This was helped by not one but two eagles, on the 11th and 14th.

The runner-up was Andrew Gill with a point total of 20.

Balls went down to 18 only.

Nearest the pin winners were Ash Hall on the 12th, Tony Bickley on the 15th and Clint Toohey on the 17th.

In the Saturday 9 February stableford contest, more good scores were the order of the day.

Ossie McClay scored 43 points to easily win B-grade and the day.

Word has it that McClay shot a par-34 on the front nine, for 27 superb points.

A-grade went to President John Hall with 40 points, also an impressive score.

The daily runner-up was Captain Noel Cross with 37 points.

Balls got down to 34.

These nearest the pin winners can collect a ball: Kevin Conway on the third, Peter Fox on the fifth, Adam Patrick on the ninth, Michael Pinkster on the 12th and J Martin on the 15th.
