Round 6, The Ridge

  • August 6, 2017

The Ridge LogoRound 6 of the RMYC Port Hacking Golf Club was played at the Barden Ridge golf course.

 

At 6:45 am, before sunrise, thirty cold golfers huddled at The Ridge for Round 6. In chilly 8°C conditions with a bitter winters westerly blowing, “Bbbbrrrrrr “ …… was a common gggggrrrreeting among the assembling golfers.

Rnd 6 Indvid Winner Steve Mac  Bob Lay R-up Rnd 6

Rear Commodore Steve McManus, playing off an extremely, staggeringly generous handicap, was an apologetic individual winner of Round 6 at The Ridge, scoring 40 Stableford points.

The handicapper was quick to correct the situation, swiftly advising the deduction of 5 points from Steve’s overly generous handicap.

Steve, who was no doubt keen to get back to the warmth of the Club and perhaps a glass of red, also had the B Grade longest drive on the 18th.

Individual Stableford runner-up for Round 6, was Commodore Bob Lay with a solid 39 Stableford points. On the overall 2017 RMYC Club Championship leaderboard, with two rounds dropped and four rounds remaining, Commodore Bob is well placed in 4th position.

Bob Lay and Steve McManus partnered to win the 4 Ball Best Ball with 49 points.

Round 6 runners-up in the 4 Ball Best Ball were Greg McClure and Anthony Tripodi, scoring 43 points. Greg was third overall in the Round 6 Individual Stableford with 37 points and this places Greg in 6th place overall on the 2017 Club Championship leaderboard.

Flying just under the handicapper’s radar were several of the top contenders for the 2017 RMYC Club Champion. Bruce Crosby, who is a firming $1.50 favourite, scored a well managed 35 points in the Individual Stableford for Round 6. With four rounds remaining, Bruce’s round catapulted him to the top position on the leaderboard.

Vice Commodore Mark Griffiths demonstrated his stamina in Round 6. Griffo, with very limited sleep after a late night business flight from China, also scored 35 points in the Individual Stableford. Mark Griffiths jumped to 8th place on the 2017 Club Championship leaderboard and is a strong contender.

Rnd 6 Mike Barlow

Current Club Champion Mike Barlow and Damian McGuirk both had strong Individual Stableford rounds.

Tail wagging Mike lucked a wipe on the 18th and fortuitously managed to score 35 points. Barlow, who is in 10th place overall, will therefore be
untouched by the handicapper.

Rnd 6 LDrive MacGoo

Damian McGuirk, who sits on 5th place on the overall leaderboard, scored 32 Stableford points.

Dammo also had nearest-the-pin on the 11th hole.

McGuirk remains confident to progress up the leaderboard from his fifth position to challenge 3rd placed Vic Raco and 4th placed Bob Lay.

Rnd 6 Dax

Talented Dax de Traubenberg, playing off a seriously challenging handicap of +1, again had a competitive round.

Dax had a double win, scoring the A Grade’s longest drive on the 7th hole and nearest-the-pin on the 5th hole. Dax’s loves winning those Sixon’s !

Andrew Zuschmann after leading for four of the six rounds of the 2017 RMYC Club Champion has slipped down the leaderboard to second place.

Rnd 6 Don Andrew Z

Although he remains in strong contention for the Club Championship, Andrew’s round had more wipes than you’d see in a paediatric nursery.

Zuschmann, sorely missing regular playing partner Dax’s knowledgeable and insightful mentoring, was The Don winner for Round 6 with 15 points.

Rnd 6 Justin Ressler

Welcome back to Justin Reseller. Justin just missed the prize cut scoring 29 Stableford points.
