Teresia Odoo Cards Best Score In the Monthly Mug and Medal  

Coastweek -- 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, nett 37.

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 and 16th.

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 Clement’s 34.5.

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.
