Young Lithgow golfer Nathan Marshall could not have started 2022 in a better way after he again blitzed the field in the monthly medals and picked up two monthly medals in one swoop.
The medals sponsored by Henry's Plant and Equipment Hire saw Marshall (12) play off for the January medal and also last November's medal that was held over to December.
He returned a 66 nett to tie the B grade medal in December and then minus a couple of shots from his handicap, again returned a 66 nett to pick up the medals.
Living next to the golf club, Marshall, who excels in a number of sports, will no doubt continue to cut his handicap down towards single figures over the school holidays.
Runner up to Marshall was Bradley Gordon (12) with a score of 71 nett on a countback. Best B grade scratch score went to Greg Jackson (12) on 27 points.
The good scoring by all the grade winners was exceptional as although the fairways and greens were in great condition the majority of the field had all sorts of trouble finding and playing their balls out of the thick rough.
A grade winner Damien Marjoram (2) had no such worries when he took out the voucher and medal with a score of 69 nett. His round included 5 birdies and an eagle. Runner up on 70 nett was Frank Mantle (8) and the best scratch score went to Andrew Burton (+1) with a one under par 37 points.
The C grade medal and grade winner was Hayden Wren (30) with a score of 71 nett. Runner up was Rob George (21) with a nett score of 73 while the best scratch score went to Brad Preston (21) on 12 points.
Vouchers went down to those with 73 nett and better; Justin McCann, Leo Murnane, Greg Giblett, Rob Hawes, Geoff Wheeler and Anthony Boza. Nearest to the pins went to Michael Saville, Mark Seckold, Troy Luka, Greg Jackson and Steven Hall.
Wednesday nine hole competition (Dec 29): winner was Brian Judge with a score of 23 points. Runner up was Juan Farmer on 21 points counting out third placed Rick Cohen.
Vouchers went to Brett Quick, Rob Hawes, Craig Pugsley, Michael Casey, Graham Dean, Phil Rooke and Wayne Morris. Cut off was 19 points ocb. Nearest to the pins were Ken Durie and Rick Cohen.
Friday nine hole competition (Dec 27): winner was Tallan Egan with the score of 22 points. Runner up was Juan Farmer on 21 points with third place going to Travis Cameron on 20 points.
