Hervey Bay Golf: Lyn is the Bay's leading light
CONGRATULATIONS to Lyn Bretherton who was Hervey Bay's leading light in the Bargara Classic last week.
Lyn's first round 69 nett earned her the Nett runner up prize for Div 1, and she followed up with a 74 the second day to be the 36 hole Nett runner up.
Although she returned a steady 73 on the final day, she was narrowly edged out of the major placings to finish Third overall.
Lyn's fine form continued when she arrived home and she took out the Ladies event last Saturday with 36 points.
Our annual Breast Cancer Day was the usual sea of pink on the fairways and in the Clubhouse.
Di Mason and Jan Isbel rattled the pink tin around the tables and a good amount was raised for Breast Cancer Research.
On the golfing side, Masi Taylor claimed A Grade with 38 pts from Carol Springer 37, Cherrie Staunton took B Grade with 37 from Ann Grant 36, and the C Grade winner was Isabel Tapp 38 from Janice Andrewartha 37.
While an eagle on the 13th hole earned me five pts recently, it was not enough to match the good scores which are continuing to come in.
39 pts proved the winning number for Judy Foy last Tuesday and for Fran Lacey on Wed in Div 1, while Di Keeton's 38 pts gave her the Wed Div 2 event.
36 points was enough to secure the top position on the leader board for Yolina Deverge last Thursday, Lyn Bretherton on Saturday and Hildegard Hennes on Sunday.
The Palm Lake Resort Matchplay is now down to the Final play offs.
In Div 1 Regina Schaerer will battle Tracey Moore, while Fran Lacey will go into combat against Penny Rowell in Div 2.
Good luck to all 4 ladies as they are sure to be tough matches.
Today we will play a Single Stableford, with the putting somewhat tricky on recently cored greens, and it is also a Single Stableford for men and women on both Saturday and Sunday.
