Moore Park Golf Club – Round 10

  • November 23, 2017

Final Golf Round for 2017

Round 10 of the RMYC Port Hacking Golf Club was played at the Moore Park Golf Club. The Thursday evening forecast for Friday’s final round of golf was 99% chance of rain with possible thunder storms. The Bureau of Meteorology got it wrong. Overcast, cloudy with patchy sunshine conditions greeted the 37 golfers assembled at Moore Park.

On the 1st tee, top of the leaderboard and odds-on favourite for the 2017 Club Championship, Bruce Crosby, was somewhat nervously deflecting talk that he was a certainty to win. Bruce needed to get his driver working off the tee to win. Also on the 1st tee, second on the leaderboard Andrew Zuschmann, a definite contender for the coveted Club Championship, looked very relaxed. The weather improved as the round unfolded and the golfers focussed on scoring Stableford points.

Competition was tight on the well manicured Moore Park course. Thirteen golfers scored 33 or more Stableford points. Jeff Green had an in-form round and was the Individual Winner on the day scoring 43 Stableford points. Jeff teamed-up with Brett Chipperfield for an outstanding 4BBB win with a combined 50 Stableford points.

Jeff Green  Brett Chipperfield

Graham McAlpine  Al Wardle

Runner-up in the Individual Stableford was Graham McAlpine with 40 Stableford points.

Graham started the golf season well scoring 39 & 32 points in the first two rounds of the competition, then finished with a last round of 40 points. Mixed form in the middle rounds of the competition cost Graham a high place in the overall competition.

Al Wardle teamed-up with Graham to be runners-up in the 4BBB with a combined total of 48 Stableford points.
