Eastlake Round 5

Twenty nine players contested Round 5 of the RMYC Port Hacking Golf Club played at the Eastlake Golf Club. Windy conditions at the long Eastlake course made golf extra challenging for the “half-way” round in the 2018 Club Championship.

 
Graham McWilliam stood tall at Eastlake winning the individual stableford with 37 points. Graham was a convincing winner also scoring a win in the teams event. A relaxing, warm island holiday works wonders!


Mike Barlow has been putting in lots of work on his golf at The Ridge and at Gloucester Golf Club. Mike was runner-up with neat 35 points and also had the Longest Drive (B Grade) on the 7th hole.

He’s really got the golf itch and the extra effort is paying off for Mike.


Dax de Traubenberg had a very successful day at Eastlake. Dax had the Longest Drives (A Grade) on both the 7th & 15th holes.

Dax also teamed-up with Andrew Zuschmann, Damian McGuirk & Graham McWilliam to win the teams event with 126 points.

Following his overall fourth place at Eastlake Golf Club, Dax playing off scratch had another win on Saturday at Woolooware Golf Club.

At the Round 5 half-way point in the 2018 RMYC Golf Club Championship, Dax is on top of the leaderboard with 153 points.

Well done Dax!

 
John Mason teamed with Ian Hillman, Steve McManus & Steven Laws to be runner’s-up in the teams event.

Ian Hillman after making several adjusts to his tee box crease, hit a full toss to win the Longest Drive (B Grade) on the 15th hole.

While golfers were enjoying lunch and refreshments, Golf Club President Vic Raco and Vice Commodore Mark Griffiths were again busy organising “donations” for the 2018 McGrath Foundation. Wannabe Anthony Tripodi was fittingly outed and fined for impersonation.

The golfers are issuing a challenge to all RMYC Sub-Clubs to beat last year’s donations. Come on Fisho’s and Sailors!

         

Graham McApline won the Don, scored a red Bradman cap, and an addition two strokes added to his handicap. Al Wardle and David Gouge were much relieved to see Graham win !
