Golf: Men scoop big cash prizes

A rainout the week before led to some sizable paydays for competitors in last Thursday men’s league golf competition at Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club.

John Kozik was the big winner, as his birdie 3 on the second hole won him $270 in the gross skins category.

Net skins of $133 each went to Dean McCann (#3), Drew Porter (#6) and Darryl McCrossan (#8).

That all overshadowed a 1-under 35 by Mark Derbyshire to take low gross honours.

Jim Ricci led the field in modified Stableford scoring, with 22 points. He topped John Reynolds, Bernard Marlow and John Sobil (21 points each), and John Thomson, Glenn Young and McCrossan with 20  points).

In July 13 WOOFs league play, Derbyshire had another 35 to win low gross. Glen Murray won low net (34.5) and John Reynolds was closest to the pin on #4. Jim Meszaros won the hidden hole prize and Randy Busbridge took home 455 iin the 50/50 draw.

On July 6, Drew Porter’s 40 was the leading WOOFs score, while Todd Watson won low net with 35. Ray Rempel won the hidden hole with a birdie on the seventh hole and Ric Blouin was closest to the pin on #4 with a shot that was “inches from an ace.” John Thomson earned $70 in the 50/50 draw.

Women’s results: Martha Cruikshank’s 91 was good for a one-shot win in 18 hole ladies league play on Tuesday. Yolanda Henry was second (92), followed by Margot Richardson and Robin Foster, tied with 96. Low net winners were Janice White and Foster (72), followed by Marlene Sibbald and Jennifer Meszaros (74). Cruikshank had a birdie on the par-5 third hole.

The top three finishers in a chipping contest were Yolanda Henry, Margot Richardson and Gayle Tanner.
