Moore College Golf Day #6

April 14, 2011

The MCGC returned to its home course for the latest installment of Moore Golf. The recently cored and sanded greens were made up for by the glorious day that greeted us. The crème de la crème of Moore golfers turned up to play, including the four previous champions. They didn’t disappoint, with half the field play to their handicap or better.

The singles competition was extremely close. Ben France took the early lead with 22 points (-4) on the front nine, two shots ahead of Anton Marquez. However, after France stumbled on the back nine the lead changed multiple times. After 14 holes only 2 shots separated the top 6 players. An Augusta-style finish was on the cards. Oram and McCorkindale both came home strong with 21 and 20 points respectively on the back nine. But it was Overhall and Pass that finished on top, both with 39 points (-3). Chris Overhall received the Scott/Day award for coming second on a countback despite a back nine of 22 points. But it was Bruce Pass who claimed his second Moore College Golf win with 23 points on the back nine – 14 on the last four holes! He was also the only person to shoot two birdies on greens that made holing putts difficult.

Here are the scores and some photos:
