Thank you to all who ventured to the magnificent golf facility that is Magenta Shores Golf and Country Club. It was a cracking day, a complete opposite to the conditions that we played in on our first visit nearly 4 years ago.
Thank you to my group of Peppas, Snorkelguru and newbie Halfer5, who passed the "BarnEsy test" with flying colours. Like some others, his first time at Magenta and early on it looked like he was going to rip it apart...starting with 5 straight pars, but as happens to most here, the course won on the day. We all look forward to you joining us again Halfer, and seeing how the h'capper treats you. It was obvious to see that the 5.5 you used to play off will be well achievable again.
Peppas was looking the goods late in his round after a very shaky start...3pts after 3 holes, 3 points after 5 holes, a magnificent "blind" birdie on 6 getting him back on the rails. 3 straight pars to begin the back nine and he was steaming to back to back wins but a final run of three one pointers saw his challenge fade to finish 2nd.
The ball knew it was hit when Snorkelguru took to the tee...man he hits it hard. Unfortunately when the direction was wrong, it was really wrong and he relied on his short game to pull through. A few putts that actually stopped short of the hole...these were fast greens...put paid to his attempt at a maiden WBT.
Moi...well, if I could have played my driver or three wood anywhere from 130 out or from bunkers..actually anytime an iron was required...I would have shat it in. They were the only decent clubs in my bag today. After parring the first I thought this is it...it certainly was..all downhill from there. Desperately Unlucky.
Congrats to Schmuck on his win and making it into the 2018 ISG NSW COC field. Nice birthday celebrations for Greywolfe taking home the mula from 2 NTP's.
Our next round is the Live4golf Memorial game on TUESDAY September 18 at Long Reef, followed by a dinner at the casa of renowned ISG party animal, Birdie Killer. Details will be up soon and we hope to see a good turnout to support a worthy cause and to celebrate a great mates birthday.
