Mon 28th Sept – Pattavia
The first game of the week was played under grey skies at the Pattavia course. Despite heavy overnight rain and into the morning the day remained dry until the closing few holes. The course was damp and with the air heavy, it played long. The greens were slow by Pattavia standards which is not a bad thing as when they are quick they are sometimes impossible. As is the case at most venues lately, the course was empty.
Since he joined the Bunker Boys Jeff Crossthwaite has driven the ball consistently. Well, Monday he brought his full game to the course and took first place with thirty-seven, a very good score any day at this course. It could be that his handicap of twenty may get an adjustment very shortly.
Only two near pins were taken with one each to Jeff Crossthwaite and Dave Ashman, who is becoming a bit of a master of the near pins.A long way back in second place, Geoff Parker edged out Kevin LeBar on countback. It could be that Kevin’s caddie proved too much of a distraction for both of them.
1st Jeff Crosthwaite (20) 37 pts
2nd Geoff Parker (17) 31 pts
3rd Kevin LeBar (12) 31 pts
Near pins: Dave Ashman & Jeff Crosthwaite.
