The rain decided to have a day off today but the recent storms made the course very wet in parts which did not allow any roll on the fairways and, on reflection, preferred lies might have been a good idea. Inspiration from watching the Ryder Cup did not permeate down to the Billabong regulars for the scores, overall, were less than impressive. Unusually, the ladies did not set the world alight today with Miss Kran, a name that appears regularly in the credits, losing out in a head to head with Miss Da for 2nd place with 32 points but looking back, 3 blobs and 3 one pointers did the damage whilst Miss Da made a big improvement with 19 points coming home. Miss Porn had 19 points on the front nine which was good enough to win the plaudits with 34 points. Greg Ritchie won a countback with Mikael Anderson on 35 points for 4th place but might have climbed the ladder of success had he not failed to score a point on the last hole. John O came 3rd with 36 points losing on a countback to William Macey who played with Wayne Cotterell but lost the battle for the top spot to him over the first 4 holes after the turn with Wayne recording two pars and a birdie to burst William’s balloon finishing with 38 points and also recorded the only 2 of the day.
