NGC Men’s Championships – 2nd Round Review

Qualifiers, Winners Decided.

Moving day is over and it’s now down to the Championship rounds. Round Two played in near winter conditions was highlighted by outstanding sub-par rounds by Harley Cindric and Matt Clements, who both shot 71 in the most trying conditions. They have closed the gap at the top in Championships with Harley joining Dan Wright in the lead after round two. Zac Wood’s consistent play has him in fourth place a shot behind Matt Clements. Harley is well placed to take out the Senior-Junior double but the Championships still have 36 holes to play and James Lavender might yet regain his form of recent weeks and feature on the last two days.

Josh Creasey didn’t seem to notice the conditions that affected everyone else and his round of the day in the Northern Cup has shot him to a two-stroke lead over George Lymbouris with the first round leaders, Michael Hooke and Peter Pugliese, a further three shots behind. The final could be a match between Josh and George but it’s a stroke event and much can happen on the final day.

Vic Ristovichis holds a one-shot lead in the Glenroy Cup ahead of Frank Mott with Michael Church also in a tight contest for the C Grade title. A wide open event as six shots covers the field and only Nick Aspiridis has managed consistent scores in the qualifying rounds.

The final rounds will be played next weekend.

Qualifiers: 8 plus ties (scores after 2 rounds)

Winners have already been decided in the James Lavender Cup, Junior Championships, A,B & C Nett events, Veterans and Super-Veterans Championships, all 36 hole events. These will be advised by the Club.

Hope to see a crowd on the course and in the clubhouse on Sunday 2nd December when the Mens’ and Women’s finals are played and the winners are presented with their trophies
