Yes we’ve been experiencing a heat wave here in Fuerte with temperatures reaching over 42ºC. Although it didn’t do my computer any good, it didn’t deter our members and guests on our Stableford comp on the 24th July. We had 30 of us braving the heat, 2 of which were playing their 1st round matchplay game, Billy Seaforth and Steed Ansell. It transpired that Billy, who just scraped through the qualifiers after losing 3 + 2 to me, beat Steed 5 + 4 and made it through to the quarter finals, only to be drawn once again against me after I’d just scraped through round 1 by beating Paul Benham on an extra hole! It’s all very close on this year’s matchplay and is really anyone’s game. I’ll keep you informed of matchplay results as they come in, but back to the game in hand.

The rest of the players on the 24th battled it out through the heat. I had my worst game for over a year scoring just 20 points! However, the winning scores were also not that high with only one player playing to their handicap. Tied in 3rd place were Tony Fawcett and Mike Thurman with 33. Runner up and at long last making it into single figures was Gordon Gilhooley with 34. But our winner of the day, who had the biggest smile on her face I’ve ever seen, was Little Eva, Eva Krivacska with 37 points. Guest winner of the day was my playing partner, Wayne Waugh a 7 handicapper, scored 29 points, a popular score on the day. Nearest the pins were won by Dud Tanton on the 7th, he also scooped the sweepstake, and guest Pete Grimes got nearest on the tricky 15th hole. No one managed a 2, so the 2’s comp was rolled over to our next main comp on the 7th August which was held at the Salinas Golf Club, and what a day that turned out to be!.........
