2021 MBS Insurance Golf Day - New South Wales Golf Club
The MBS Insurance Golf Day took place at the spectacular New South Wales Golf Club on a perfect day. The course was simply stunning and even for those who had played there before, it truely was a great experience. Scoring was extremely close with only 10 Stableford points separating first from last and a count back required to seperate both the winners and third placed teams.
Midway through the round the third placed team of Chris MacKenzie, John Fisher, Tom McDonald & Martin Fowler were last on the leaderboard but a stellar back nine of 58 points ensured they would beat the other team who finished on 106 points on a count back. The runners up, in contrast, were on top of the leaderboard for a great portion of the day, but in amongst all the good play - three 8 point holes and four 7 point holes - they also had a 3 and 4 point hole that ultimately stopped them from taking the victory. Well played Evan Miller, Ed Bassingthwaighte, David Dossetto & Emma Clark. Our winners were extremely steady throughout the day, recording just one 4 point hole and a back nine of 54 points to win the count back by 2 when both teams finished on 109 points. Congratulations to Brent McCullough (0), Simon James (13), Brendon Vade (21) & Andrew Fotheringham (17). For the list of results, click on the 'Download All Results' button below.
Ashleigh was on the 10th hole measuring each guest's ball speed and club head speed. The relationship between the two develops a 'smash factor'. The optimum smash factor is near 1.5 and we had a reading of 1.54 from Ben Norval - who interestingly plays with his hands the reverse way on the club! See the video below for all the swings...
Thanks to all who attended and made it into such a great day.
