One golfer stands above the pack

By Ron Hottes

Well, it finally had to happen – a breakout performance from one of the Warburton Golf Club members.

At the club’s 24 June stableford, it was a fairly new member, Jim Rhodes, who amassed a stunning 44 points to take the top prize. His round was breathtaking.

Another ‘newbie’ to the club is Flynn Cousens, who could count himself very unlucky not to have won that top prize.

He had 41 points, in a superb display of consistent golf.

Balls only stretched to 34 points.

The best Front-9 was won by Kevin Bargar, with 20 points.

Jim Rhodes had two good nines in a row, but his stunning Back-9, where he amassed 24 points, won him his second voucher on the day.

A run of really good weather always brings out the best in most golfers.

Certainly, the best at the club’s 27 June stableford was Michael Batten, who took out A Grade, by scoring 41 impressive points.

The B Grade voucher was taken out by M.Parker, scoring 38 points.

Shane Campbell was the daily runner-up with 38.

Two young tyros shared the spoils for the best Front-9. Angus Smith and Seth Spencely both had 21 superb points.

Jason King continued his good recent form with a 20-point back nine. Those last three names are very promising young players at the Warburton Golf Club – a real positive for the future!
