Lindner and Everett win back-to-back, Ko wins first time out
by Golf Australia
Monday, 16 March and the SA Senior contingent ventured to Tea Tree Gully to take on the might of the fabled locals. At the end of the day, it all came out even with Bruce Lindner (Kooyonga) following up his Seniors win at Mt Osmond with an even par 71 and Chris Everett (tea Tree Gully) also repeating in the Super Seniors. Michael Hogben (Blackwood) was a popular winner of the combined Men’s nett but Mike is a former Tea Tree Gully man so, arguably, had a foot in both camps. A number of new players from North Adelaide Golf Club added to the women’s ranks with Young Ko taking out both the gross and nett events. North Adelaide also fielded some female players in the 2020 Senior pennant season so are leading the way in this aspect. Tea Tree Gully Golf Club is located at the foot of the Adelaide North-Eastern Hills and features couch grass fairways and tricky bent greens. Conditions were perfect for scoring – white tees, mild weather and the course excellent after a freshen-up from some recent rain. The men’s field consisted of 59 aspirants complemented by 16 women. Sponsorship was provided by long-term member and sponsor, Brian Meakins and his excellent Rusticana Wines – a product perfectly suited to senior golfers! Other noteworthy performances included John Davey making a welcome return after being sidelined with health and injury issues; local Diane Biebrick returning the day’s best women’s Super Senior score and Malcolm Sangster (West Lakes) continuing to his consistent handicap play and matching Hogben and Lindner’s nett 69’s. Lindner is establishing an early lead in the Senior Order of Merit from Craig Gordon who again went well at home. Other contenders include Glen McGough, Nigel Turner and Richard Payne. The Super Seniors is open with Lindsay Elliott, Phil Smith, Everett, Parker and both the Richards in contention. Event Results > Click Here
