SOME great golfing weather brought a field of 27 out to contest the Alexander Galt & Co Stableford event.
Competition was fierce in both grades with countbacks needed to separate those vying for the minor places.
It was pleasing to see the sponsors were able to play on the day and the club thanked Wade Longmuir and Dane Tulley for a successful day.
A-grade was won by the consistent Brent Barker with a score of 37 points; who has been cleaning up lately and is well stocked with golf balls.
Second on a count back was Phil Sprigg with 33 points, narrowly beating Greg Stephens and Brian Patterson with the same score.
B-grade saw Ken George continue his recent form and win the day with an excellent 41 points, with Locko Ballantyne runner-up with a creditable 36 points.
Just missing out were Jeff Riseborough and Dave Hill, both on 35 points.
Nearest the pins was won by Wade Longmuir on Nos. 3 and 8 and Fe Thompson on No. 16.
Thursday scroungers had 10 players with Brent Barker narrowly taking the win from Geoff Cheriton, proving that practice at scroungers pays off in the Saturday competition.
Next Saturday will be a stroke event and the third qualifying round with the Golf Downunder/Aussie Stockyards Wagin Open on the Sunday.
