Any day you shoot a net 65 is a very good day indeed.

Both Michael Savage and Craig Barron did so in the third round of the Stubberfield Cup on Saturday, tearing round a parched course to record among their best rounds ever.

Michael - playing off a 17 handicap from the white tees - carded an 82, while Craig shot an 84 - which included an eagle on the par four 17th- off a 19 handicap.

Unsurprisingly, they blitzed the large field even though the format was net plus putts.

Michael - who had just 26 putts - topped the standing with an outstanding 91, four better than Craig (30 putts) on 95.

Their efforts propelled them firmly into contention with just one round remaining in the four-round competition, with the best three counting.

They weren't the only ones to shine on a day of generally good scoring. Mick Leggett secured third after recording a net 68 to go with 30 putts for a total of 98, just ahead of Garth Jameson (69+29) and Jack Denton (70+28) on countback.

Next were James Campion - whose 73 was the best gross of the day - and Jonathan Tuheke who both had net 71 and 28 putts for 99.

Neil McLaren's net 67 was one of the best but he blew out to 100 with 33 putts. He shared that total with Steve Russell (70+30).

Making up the top group were the foursome of Andrew Craig (71+30), Graham Galt (73+28), Andy Isle (74+27) ad Lewis Wilson (74+27) on 101.

Craig and Aaron Kotua shared the twos money.

Heather Carey and Paul McCrae shared the 9-hole net plus putts honours with a total of 49. 

The club welcomed back former club captain John Hornby and his partner Julie Davis for the day. Also in the field were Nigel and Frank Kotua.

Next Saturday (Feb 24) we play the second and final round of the Cap-it-all Trophy, which is a four ball best ball with selected partners. It also doubles as Beat the Pro where pairs take on a Total Golf team which is a lot of fun. Please report by 9am for a 9.30am start.
