Andrew and Greg Hutchesson have combined well to score 46 points and win the four ball better ball stableford competition at Penola Golf Club on the weekend.
In the strangely named competition that has teams of two competing, the competition was very strong, with good scores coming from most of the field.
A solid field of 20 players competed in the event and were met by very pleasant conditions and lightning fast greens that were in the best condition in memory.
But the Hutchessons didn’t have it easy, taking out the competition by just one point over the team of Mark Edwards and Curt Evans, thanks mainly to Greg’s 38 points, which included four birdies, three of those on the Par 5’s.
Edwards and Evans formed a last minute team and combined well to finish on 45 points.
Evans again played well for his 37 points with Edwards adding a few good holes of his own to ensure a good spread of points.
But only a single point on the sixth hole may have cost them the win.
The team of George Kidman and Sam Hill finished third with 45 points after starting strongly with six three-pointers on the first six holes.
Naracoorte visitors Brad Davies and Mick Pannell enjoyed the course to score a combined 44 points for fourth place.
Pannell looked in ominous form and once he gets a few more cards in, his handicap might be down somewhat.
Nearest the pin were won by John Wilkinson (7th), Edwards (9th) and Davies (16th) and the best second on the 11th was taken out by David Boyd.
