Simpson Cup Round 6 at Royal Adelaide

Glenelg 2 ½ lost to Grange 4 ½

  1. Kade Bryant halved with Alex Hendrick
  2. Harry Burner lost to Ross Steedman 4/3
  3. Michael Munn lost to Darren Baynes 4/3
  4. Zac Bray def Andrew Nakone 3/2
  5. Josh Hayes lost to Michael Coleman 4/2
  6. Jack Leonard def Matthew Wilson 6/4
  7. Nick Wake lost to Mark Demasi 4/2

We expected Grange to be a tough opponent and at the end of the day they proved too good for us on the day recording a comfortable win.  They had their noses in front for most of the day and we were not able to make any inroads on the back nine.  Only one match went past the 16th hole with the other results relatively decisive.  At one stage it looked like we might be able to salvage a half but it was not to be.

Going out first at no.7 Nick Wake got things off to a good start to be 2 up after 3 holes.  Unfortunately things started to unravel from there with an uncooperative putter!  By the turn he was 2 down and then 4 down after 12.  He managed to win the next two holes to get back to 2 down but that was as close as he could get before the match finished on 16.

Jack Leonard continues to impress in his debut Simpson Cup season this time against the experienced and long hitting Matt Wilson.  Jack won the first hole and was square after the 5th but from there on it was all one way traffic as he reached the turn 3 up and going on to record an impressive 6/4 victory.

Josh Hayes had a close match on his hands early against Michael Coleman to be square after 6 and 1 down after 10.  At this stage he was in with a chance but the next few holes would prove vital as Michael was able to win 3 more holes and close out the match on the 16th.

Zac Bray had a battle on his hands early to be square thru 5 holes but he was playing well and after 10 holes he was 3 up.  After that the margin fluctuated between 2 and 3 up.  An excellent tee shot into the difficult par 3 16th set up an easy par for a very solid 3/2 win.

Michael Munn couldn’t get anything going in his match against Darren Baynes.  He was 2 down after 5 holes and then 4 down at the turn.  After a loss on the 10th things were slipping away but he won 2 of the next 3 holes to get the margin back to 3 to give himself some hope with 5 holes left to play. Unfortunately it would prove to be a bridge too far as Darren closed out the match on the 15th.

Harry Burner found himself 2 down early against Ross Steedman and despite his best efforts he could not make any dent in the margin. He was 3 down after 6 and 4 down after 12.  As they went down the reachable par 5 15th Harry was 3 down and still some sort of chance with his length.  Both players reached the green in two.  Harry’s eagle putt slipped past the hole a little too far and he had to settle for par whilst Ross made his birdie to win the match.

In the no. 1 match Kade Bryant and Alex Hendrick fought out a high quality affair in the only match to go the distance.  It was a game of two halves with Kade dominating the front nine to be 4 up and Alex holding sway on the back nine which he played in 3 under.  This match provided some late drama with Kade’s 4 hole margin evaporating by the 14th thanks to Alex’s strong play.  Kade then birdied the par 5 15th to go 1 up.  He hit an excellent tee shot into 16 but Alex hit a better one to 6 feet.  Kade’s birdie putt missed but Alex made his to get back to square.  On the long and difficult par 4 17th Kade hit a solid tee shot and Alex found the fairway bunker.  Kade hit a good second from a long way out to reach the front of the green but he was left with a devilish birdie putt up and down a big right to left slope.  Alex had to lay up out of the bunker but then hit the shot of the day when he wedged it past the hole and spun it back to tap in range for par.  Kade hit the best putt he possibly could to 8 feet.  He made the par putt to go down the last all square.  Both players hit good tee shots but Kade missed the green left with his approach.  Alex hit another stunning iron shot to 5 feet with an excellent birdie chance.  Kade had to get up and down to have any hope.  He chose the ‘scrape’ shot with his 3 wood to run it up the hill and onto the green.  He executed it to perfection and came within millimetres of holing it for birdie but had to settle for par.  Alex had the chance to make another birdie to win the match but his putt just slid by the hole.  A half was probably a fitting result!

Thanks to the caddies and our loyal band of members and sponsors who came out on a frigid winter’s day to support us.

With one minor round match to go against Royal Adelaide at home we still hold a 0.5 point lead at the top of the table over 2 teams who are tied for second.  Our fate is in our own hands with a win securing top position going into the finals.

Bonnar Cup Report

Sunday 23 June 2024

The Bonnar boys returned to their winning ways this week with a solid hit-out against Thaxted Park at a well presented Kooyonga GC. 

We hit off at 9:40 with a Cold northerly assisting the 1st drive and, making his well deserved return, James Bridgen lead the way at no. 7. Unfortunately James found a very steady opponent hard to overcome and eventually lost 3&1.

Matt Jacquier also found himself having to dig deep at no. 6, eventually returning a very strong 3&2 victory.

Max Jericho then returned to some great form quickly finishing his match on the 12th 7&6.

Harry Edwards got off to a quick start at no. 5 including 3 birdies early but then was disappointed to eventually loose 4&2.

That was 2 matches all but with all ongoing matches trending our way.

David Brand then finished off his match 4&3 which was a great win for the team.

Ben Winton then maintained his winning form with a great 3&2 victory.

That left Mick Phillips to complete a 5 matches to 2 victory for the team with an impressive 5&4 win at no.1.

We remain on top of the ladder and will look to retain this spot when we take on 6th placed TTG bright and early next week at RA. This will be our final minor round match.

As always, we would like to thank caddies, Glenn Sterrey, Keith Barnard, Dave Rosie, Steve Jacquier, Leanne Edwards (who again came through with warm quiches for the managers) and our loyal band of supporters who are also really appreciate.

Sharp Cup Team Round 4 – Geleng vs Country District at Tea Tree Gully 23/06/2024

Kyle Feltus – 5/4
Indie Danger – 1/0 
Johnny Peers – 5/4 (down)
Jayneil Rudrappagari – 3 / 1
Cooper Lessue – 8/7

The Sharp cup team had their fourth round at Tea Tree Gully. The Sharp Cup team maintained their winning momentum, defeating Country District 4/1.  Despite sunshine peeking through, the day remained chilly with a touch of wind throughout the match.

The Sharp Cup squad got off to a flying start, dominating the early stages. Even when Country District threatened a comeback, each player displayed remarkable resilience, keeping their opponents at bay to secure the team victory.

However, Johnny deserves special recognition for his valiant effort. Still recovering from Covid symptoms, he battled hard until the 14th hole before ultimately losing to his opponent.

This is a great result from the Sharp Cup Team, who are clearly playing with a lot of confidence at the moment. They will be looking to continue their winning ways in their next match at Willunga on 30/06.

This week seen us playing at Tea Tree Gully.

Getting to the pointy end of the season we where looking to keep the winning streak going but being a player short made it a hard day and in a very close match we went down 3&2.

Levi Ashton was our captain again this week.  He was 4 down by the 9th with his opponent playing well. Lisa Muadz jumped in helping by pushing his buggy for the last 9 which allowed him to focus on closing the gap. Still 4 down with 5 to play Levi found his A Game sinking a 10 footer winning the 14th and 15th holes.  A chip in out of the bunker on 16th closed the gap some more and following that by winning both the 17th & 18th holes to snach the win by 1 up. 

Gareth Thien played in the 2nd spot and like always Mr consistent got the lead and continued to build on it winning his game convincingly by 5&3.

Mia Chinner playing in the 3rd spot got off to an awesome start being 1 up through 5 and square through 9. Going in to the 18th being 1 down she was looking for the squared match but unfortunately not quite getting there going down 2.

Darmia Muadz was in the 4th spot keen to get the win. She got off to a great start being 2 up through 5 and holding her lead at 2 up through 9, but her opponent finding some form on the back saw her all square going into the 18th  unfortunately losing the last to go down 1.

Ben Yin’s game was a forfeit losing 10&8

You all played your hearts out on Sunday and you should all be very proud of the way you have played and conducted yourself for the season so far. You are all super stars!!!

Monday morning brought a cold and ominous atmosphere as we faced our crucial final minor round match against Blackwood. A victory or at least a draw was imperative to secure our spot in the finals.

Benefiting from home ground advantage, our team was eager, and all five players made an impressive start in the modified 16-hole competition.

Wendy Vaughan, playing at number five, continued her strong form, racing to a 4-up lead after seven holes. Despite a spirited comeback from her opponent, Wendy held on and closed out the match 2/1 with an excellent approach shot on the 14th green.

Fiona Eblen, at number four, showcased her best golf of the season, dominating her match from the start. She was 5 up after six holes and maintained control throughout, winning decisively 6/5.

Jo Ricourt, at number three, delivered a stellar performance, starting with a commanding 6-up lead after seven holes. Despite her opponent’s efforts to rally, Jo’s precise iron play and putting secured a 6/5 victory.

Having secured the team win early, our final two players could finish their matches without pressure.

Jo Rawson, at number two, played consistently to maintain a 4-up lead after nine holes. Although her opponent made a comeback attempt, Jo held steady and closed out her match 4/3 on the 12th hole.

Tonia Ross, playing at number one, had a closely contested match but maintained her early lead. She was 2 up after nine holes and continued strong play on the 11th and 12th to win her match 5/3.

This outstanding 5-0 victory lifted Glenelg to second place after the minor rounds. Next week, we tee off in the second semi-final against Mt Osmond at Royal Adelaide from 8.30am.  Come out and support the team!

A big thank you to our caddies who braved the chilly conditions – Anne Hooper, Juliet Culley, Jill Gehling, Lou Pike and Oscar Vaughan.

Cleek Report round 7

This week the team played Kooyonga at The Grange and it proved to be a very tough encounter.

All matches went to the 18th hole with all team members fighting hard throughout the day.

Julie Gobbie at number 1 was 5 shots down on the front 9 but then settled to claw her way back to square on the 18th.

Similarly, Frances Macpherson at number 2 was 6 shots down on the front 9 but she also fought her way back into contention. Sadly, Frances lost her match 1 down.

Both players had to give 4 strokes to their opponents as did Sally Sechser at number 3. Sally’s match was a much closer affair but again the final result was a squared match.

Our 4th  and 5th players (Jo McCarthy and Lynne Rainey) also finished square, both playing very tight matches throughout the 18 holes.

The final result, a 3/2 loss to Kooyonga, was still good enough for our team to finish 3rd on the ladder and make the finals next week. Fortunately the team had some very good wins earlier in the season as the final 4 were decided on the total number of individual games won.

We will play Grange at Royal Adelaide in the semi final next Monday.

Thank you once again to our hard working caddies and to our number 1 team supporter, Peter.
