There is a thought around the Lithgow Golf Club that hole in ones come in threes.

This was again the case when Brett Scanlon and Greg Guest scored aces following on from Jeff Geddes’ hole in one all in a matter of weeks.

There has not been any recorded for a long time but since Geddes holed out two weeks ago, Brett Scanlon scored his first hole in one when he swung truly on the fourth during last week's Friday competition.

Greg Guest then followed suite scoring his ace a day later during Saturday's competition on the second hole.

Guest had previously scored a hole in one on the ninth.

Saturday's event was a two ball best ball and a relatively newcomer two competition golf Peter Thompson blitzed the field when he combined with Anthony Oldfield to score a massive 56 points.

Thompson also won the singles event with a person tally of 46 points and had best scratch score in C grade with 20 points.

Other scratch winners were Andrew Burton in A grade 36 points and in B grade Ryan Bannerman with 27 points.

Runners up in the two ball were Damien Marjoram and Brad Gordon with the very good score of 50 points that would usually be good enough for a win.

Balls cut out on 46 points neat.

Nearest the pins were Greg Guest, Michael Bennett, Frank Mantle, Brad Gordon and Anthony Oldfield.
