The month of July was exceptionally busy with golf fixtures
which took precedence over the normal monthly mug and medal at
Nyali Golf and Country Club which were therefore postponed and
finally played on Saturday 11th of August 2018,
reports THE MARKER.
The best score of
the day in the entire field came from a lady, one under handicap
score of nett 70, carded by Teresia Odoo playing in Silver
Division and who took the top spot in her division.
It was not the best
start for Terry, going off the traditional ladies start on the
10th which she bogeyed and although she followed up
with a par on the 11th, things did not go her way
with another bogey on the 12th and two more, on the
14th and 15th, worse a double on the 13th,
16th and 17th, with just one par on the
closing hole to end the nine with 45 shots, two over handicap,
Her back nine, the
first nine, produced a much better result, nett 33 off 41 shots
with pars on the 1st, 3rd, 6th
and 9th, one over on the rest.
Next best after
Terry’s score was one over handicap nett 72, shared by Susan
Stokes in Silver Division which placed her in the second
position, Pia Swatton in Bronze Division which earned her the
top place in her division and two gentlemen, Evance Manono and
William Kaguta playing in A Division.
The tussle between
the two gentlemen had to be resolved on a count back over the
last six holes, both having posted identical total score of nett
36 for the back nine.
With the difference
of six in their handicap, Evance’s total of 26 shots over the
six holes containing pars on the 13th, 17th
and 18th netted to 22.6 giving him an edge over
William’s 23.6 off his 25 shots.
Beaten into second
place but William had the big consolation of claiming the Best
Gross of the day with his five over par knock of 76, made up
with two even nines of 38.
He dropped two shots
to par in the first nine off a double bogey on the 2nd,
the rest being pars, equaling nett 36 for the four handicapper.
On the back nine he
dropped more shots with bogeys on the 10th, 13th,
14th and 17th but a 2 club birdie on the
15th reduced the loss by one to three over par 38,
one over handicap 36 nett.
There was a tussle
for the three top places on the same score in B Division as
well, all three scores being nett 74, carded by Clement Agina,
Sanjiv Dhutia and the Captain Taib Bajaber.
Of the three the
Captain lost out to both Sanjiv and Clement with his count back
of 37, a result of double bogeys on the 10th, 13th
Playing off the same
handicap of 17, the tie between Clement and Sanjiv was resolved
in favour of Clement, with his back nine total of 43 while
Sanjiv took a shot more with 44, finishing nett 35.5, against
In the entire field,
William’s was the only score in the seventies, with six scores
in the eighties recorded in A Division and one in B Division,
carded by none other than Bwana Captain.
On the ladies side
there were three scores in the eighties, the winners of the
first, second and third prizes in Silver Division.
The strong wind
combined with some tough pin positions, particularly on the 8th,
10th, 14th, 16th and 18th
made scoring difficult for majority of players.
Well done the
winners and thank you Johnnie Walker for the continuing
sponsorship of the mug and the medal, as always.
