Robert "Blue" Kuhl was cool as a cucumber as he racked up 39 points in arctic conditions at the Penola Golf Club last Saturday.
With widespread rain and strong winds forecast, the planned Koonara Mixed and Men's Aggregate Stableford was postponed until the following weekend.
However, 13 brave souls took on the conditions, that fortunately, were not quite as bad as expected.
"Blue" led the charge home with 19 points on the front nine, before storming home with 20 points on the homeward run.
He had five pars and could have had a few more if his nerved hadn't got the better of him on a couple of short putts.
His playing partner, Dean Moore, finished runner-up with 38 points, in what would have been a hard team total to chase down.
Moore was experimental as ever, using a driver on the par three seventh to nudge one along the ground into the wind.
Moore scored on every hole in an unusually consistent performance and is just starting to get form right as the championships approach.
Paul Harmer finished third with a steady score of 37 points.
Although striking the ball well, Harmer failed to capitalise on the greens, and was left ruing a great opportunity to score well.
He still had seven pars for the day, and was unlucky not to convert a few of these into birdies.
Allen Meyer finished fourth with 36 points.
Meyer was on fire early as he had 21 points on the front nine.
A poor patch on the back nine cost him vital points and a chance to win the day.
However, he still finished with a commendable score.
Nearest the pins went to Andrew Hutchesson on the seventh and Shane Anderson had the best shot into the ninth and the best second into the 11th which he birdied.
John Wilkinson took home the chocolates, although in a bunched up field, he wasn't far off the mark.
