Probus members and guests,


          It was good to see Stan Hegarty back with us after a long absence due to the Lockdown in the UK.  He tells us he hasn’t played golf  since he was last in Spain.  This explains why he was the winner this week!  Yes, while we have been busy practicing our ‘Bad Shots’ Stan has forgotten all about those and it showed today.  After a very normal first hole he scored 10 points on the next three holes and continue to score well except on the 8th where he found the water and failed to score.  But he managed a fabulous 20 points to take the winners honours from John Bark who again came a very creditable second place on 17 pts.  Well done Stan!  Your Captain tells me he is very pleased with you. YOUR CUT two shots!  I have to say I have never seen a guy so pleased to be cut.


          The bottom trophy this week went to last week’s winner, Steve Smurthwaite.  It was just not his day. Commiserations Steve…. I still think you’ve got a great swing.  As someone once said ‘Just the right swing but not necessarily in the right order!’


          Nearest the pin on the 8th was Chris Cock but then that man John Bark came in with a shot, just a tap-in away, to grab his birdie.  And unlike last week, this time he was clearly nearest the pin, so taking a nice bottle of ‘Guvnor’ vino tinto.  Congratulations John!


Here are all the scores:-


Stan Hegarty 20 pts winner, John Bark 17 pts. John Kiddle 16pts. Gus Drake 15pts. Chris Cock 13pts. Tom Sharp 13 pts. Sid Owen 12 pts. Martin Butler 9 pts. and Steve Smurthwaite 9pts.


          Tee times next Tuesday are 09-30 & 40. 

Thursday is 09-30 & 40hrs


Happy Golfing


Vice Captain
