Golf: Jenkins has career day but Derby scoops top spot

Steven Jenkins posted a career low 1-under 35 in men's league play last Thursday and collected 24 points for tops under the modified Stableford scoring system.

But his round wasn't quite good enough to win low gross as 30-time men's club champion Mark Derbyshire went one better with a 2-under 34.

Derbyshire's day included a spectacular eagle 3 on the long par-5 fifth hole.

Current men's champ James Grigjanis-Meusel also had a 35.

John Read and Keith Dexter tied for second with 23 Stableford points, followed by Earl Shore and Ian Rutherford with 21 each.

Roman Mamalyga was closest to the pin on #4 and Dan Regan was closest on #9.

Derbyshire collected $65 in gross skins for his eagle on #5 and Grigjanis-Meusel won a skin for a birdie on #8.

No net skins were won, so the $200 in prize money carries over to this week.

In WOOFs league play on Aug. 17, Drew Porter led the way with a 39 while Grant Williams took low net. Brock Sansom's birdie on the par-5 third hole won the hidden hold. Darryl Fry was closest to the pin on #4 and Ken Burr is $66 richer thanks to the 50/50 draw.

On Aug. 10, Jim Maszeros and Ralph Rickard shared low gross honours and Gerry Sibbald was low net. Rick Janes had a birdie on #7 to win the hidden hole and closest to the pin on #4 was Dean McCann. Randy McCartney was $50 in the 50/50 draw.

The annual WOOFers Cup tournament will be played on Aug. 31, league co-ordinator Bill Katrynuk announced.

Golfers will compete for the cup, which has been newly refurbished by club member and wood craftsman Todd Watson.

To make things interesting, all players will tee off from the forward blocks, so some really low scores are anticipated.

WOMEN'S RESULTS: In the nine hole women's league on Tuesday, Margot Hickson and Lynne Heaman tied for low net with 32. Ria Rosenberg sank the longest putt while Trish Anthony had the longest drive.

The 18 hole women's league held a “fairways hit” competition Tuesday and club champion Yolanda Henry took first-place prize money of $20  by hitting it straight and reaching six fairways. Marg Ketcheson and Judy Mantle hit five fairways and won $15 each.

Henry also won low gross with an 85, followed by Mantle with 92 and Barbara Ahluwalia with 93.

Low net of 71 was shared by five women: Donna Lailey, Sharron Marlow, Christine Earl, Mantle and Ahluwalia.

Peggy Larder had a chip-in on #9 and birdies were recorded by Maria Townley (#3), Shelley Sansom (#7) and Henry (#11).
