Armstrong Motor Group Twilight – Night 2

38 players braved cool, breezy conditions on Tuesday for night 2 of the 6 night series 2. The scoring on the more difficult back 9 was still pretty hot in both comps.

Going back-to-back for the ladies was Lydia Pomeroy with 22 stablefords ahead of Lynley Gainsford who took 2nd place on countback over Jill O’Neill, both on 20 points. Barbara Ford took away the NTP prize on #15.
The Men saw some great scores recorded with 23 points from Hamish Hodgson, winning on countback from Nigel Paterson with Ben Potter (22) in 3rd place. Hamish also took out NTP on #13.

The COVID-delayed Twilight series 1 also concluded on Tuesday night with both comps going down to the wire. Series 1 was an 8-week series with the 5 best stableford scores counting. For the Ladies a score of 20 points on the final night gave Lynley Gainsford (98) the win over Victoria Webb-Smart (95) with Jo McNicholl 3rd (92).

It was a nervous night for some in the Men’s division but Andrew Vickers held on to take 1st with 102 points over Neville Bamford (100) and David Ott (99).
Winners enjoyed over $1,100 in prizes so a huge thanks again to Armstrong Motor Group and Merivale Fresh Choice for their generous support of our Twilight.
We take a break next week due to Cup Day but will resume on Tuesday Nov 17th for night 3. Bookings in the pro shop are essential please so we can be organised on the night and please make sure you are here in plenty of time to get to your starting tee.
