Big Field for Thaxted Park Masters
by Golf Australia
Big Field for Thaxted Park Masters The field of 112 players entered for the Thaxted Park Masters was a great effort by the Golf Club, Adelaide’s furthermost southern suburban club. Monday, 29 March 2022 was a perfect early-autumn day, 27 degrees, little wind and a well-presented course with the breaking greens presenting a challenge to the visiting players. An excellent day was had by all with the usual Thaxted Park hospitality for the presentation. The Thaxted Park Masters is proudly sponsored by Lion Brewing and On Fire Racing. Local players handled their course well by dominating the Nett – Peter Mueller (68), Michael Bolton (68), Malcolm Williams (70) and Roger Hoper and Rino Boffa (both 73’s). Senior Men With three of the main Order of Merit contenders in Paul Gregory, Mark Potter (both from The Vines) and Mt Osmond’s Andy Edwards grouped together, an epic battle ensured. Gregory did not record a bogey for his round however his five birdies were off-set by three doubles. Similarly, Potter and Edwards also made critical double bogeys with Paul’s up-and-downs on his 17th and 18th holes winning him the day. Potter took second with Nigel Turner (Links Lady Bay) edging out Edwards on a Count-Back. This was Gregory’s third win from his five starts so far – he will take some beating for the Season’s honours. Super Seniors Men Bob Baird always puts in a good performance in his home course event and did not disappoint in winning both the Gross and Nett. Lindsay Elliott (Blackwood) was second on a count-back in the Gross, picking up OOM points on Tea Tree Gully’s Jim Richards and Mike Richards (both with 80’s). Bob’s win in the Nett was also on a count-back from Robert Greenwood (also Thaxted) – in fact, local members filled the next six places. Senior Women Mi Park (North Adelaide) is becoming a consistent performer in the Senior Women’s section, winning both the Gross and Nett. However, both wins were on a count-back from Kathryn Hender (the Vines) (85/74) in both the Gross and the Nett. Amanda Heapy took third in the Gross and Sarah Russell (North Adelaide) was third in the Nett. Super Senior Women Angela Masters (Blackwood) continued her domination of this section (Angela has won every round) with her 83 being the best round from all the ladies. Other members of the dedicated Blackwood contingent filled the next three places – Paula White (90), Pam Withers (93) and Rosemary Underwood (96). Thaxted’s Judith Henley (75) won the Nett from Masters (76) and another local, Helen Barber (77).
