Taylor and Cobb swing into form

GYMPIE veterans Brian Taylor and Mike Cobb took advantage of the excellent course conditions to win last Wednesday’s Four Ball Best Ball Stableford event.

Brian, who has just returned from a train tour through Russia, put aside his lengthy lay off from golf to record an impressive 50 Stableford points with his playing partner Mike.

“The course is in the best condition I’ve seen for some time, which certainly makes playing all the more enjoyable,” Taylor said.

The fight for runners up was much closer, with three teams each carding 48 points. However, Jeff Mason and Lester Pettit were narrow winners on a count back.

Trophies for the day were donated by Nev Gilchrist and Barry Bargenquast.

Ball rundown to 46 points: Barry Allen, Col Smith, Tom Siddons, Rod Emmerson, Dave Thomas, George Tompkins, Brian Carroll, Keith Johnson, Doug Cunningham, Barry Maher, John Kerwin, Phil Barry, Keith Stewart, Derek Appleford.

Hole 16 accuracy shot: Bill McTaggart, Keith Stewart, Jeff Mason, Ken Wilkins, Lionel Muir, Ray Dunkley, Don Cappetti.

Members will today play for the monthly medal sponsored by Neals Family Meats.
