“No new toys for Christmas. Thank you.” Could well have been the thought this week of the 2013/14 and 15 Club Champion, Nico Jacobs. Hotter than the days he completed his last two rounds in eleven under par. His Boxing Day gross 66 (eight birdies and two dropped shots) fittingly produced a winning 42 individual stableford points. A bump at the final turn saw Nigel Page finish just a nose behind on 41 points. Three players returned 39 points – Ian Crozier, Alan Doherty and Adrian McLaren. Mclaren slipped into third place by virtue of the big nine in the count out.
On Christmas Eve Kevin Doherty posted a six pointer on the last hole to return 21 points and a win in the Thursday KWV Powerplay Niner. Gasson Williams was the runner up on 19 points on a count out. Daryll Alexander, who lost the count out, was third aided by a six pointer at the fifth. Outside of the prize winners Ant Crozier also recorded a big six and another entry into the Roodeberg and Rump draw. Although, he did admit, that his interest lay a little less towards the solid stuff.
Wednesday’s competition produced somewhat mixed results. 45 points was the top score in the betterball stableford. A count out deemed Bernie Bennett and Dave Jacobs first and Johnny Cloete and Deon Klopper second. In the IPS section the top score was 42 points. The count out placed Johnny Cloete first and Nico Jacobs second. Nico Jacobs matched the mid-morning heat as he scorched his way two a five under par gross 67, that included five birdies, one eagle and two drops.
The winners in Tuesday’s Cleveland Golf sponsored Super Six Tournament were Christiaan Voight (14), Conrad Fortune (13) and Ramon Barlow (12).
