Sat 15th June – First round of the president’s trophy sponsored by Doug Savarese.
67 players including 17 Visitors played in the stroke event. The president’s trophy is a 36 hole stroke event played over 2 weekends. Craig Klumpp is leading after the first round with a Nett 71 to be leading Kevin Wooltorton also shooting a 71 Nett on a countback, Ming Yap, Alan Cope, Trevor Piggott and Stewart Jones are all a further shot back on Nett 72. Klumpp who has been in great form and fresh off a win at scroungers continued his run of success. His round was highlighted by shooting par on the back nine including a birdie on No 11. His new clubs are certainly helping his golf and will not be long before he is playing off single figures. Wooltorton started his round strongly on the front nine but faltered on the back nine with triple bogies on 13 and 14 not helping his cause. He sunk some great putts during his round and could count himself unlucky not to be leading. It is going to be a close finish next week with 12 players within 3 shots of each other.
One of the visitors Rob Buck had the best score on the day with a Nett 68.
