Men

Sunday’s Par event produced plenty of good scores with the winning score being +5 coming from a determined Phil Neville after brother Doug won the monthly medal the previous month.

Phil wanted to put right who is the family’s second-best golfer.

Runner-up was hard to find with four players returning +4 but after an exhausting count-back Dave Fullager was awarded second place, others on +4 were Joe Labas, Jeff Mills and Jock Mundy.

The nearest-the-pins went to Alan Anderson sneaking one onto the third, the day’s winner Phil Neville making the eighth and Dave Fullager taking out both 13 and 16 with two solid strikes.

Next week’s golf is the fifth and final round of the summer trophy, stroke play; on office duty is G. Bow and in the bar J. Lodding.
