Last weekend, May 4 and 5, the 2013 Picker Constructions Cowra Golf Club Champions were crowned.
Once again, the Club Champion is Peter Kirwan who comfortably secured his eleventh Club Championship and in doing so, stretched his winning streak to eight consecutive titles.
This impressive record puts Peter in danger of being a victim of his own success; it almost looks as though, “he turns up, he wins!”
This is certainly not the case, proven by the fact that he improved on his winning score from last year by a whopping 8 shots.
Peter scorched around the course on Saturday’s “moving day,” shooting 68 for an impressive 54 hole tally of 3 under-par 210, effectively breaking the backs of the chasing pack.
Mick Haydon finished runner-up to Peter for the Club Championship, 14 shots behind.
Cameron Edgar also comfortably completed what is a fairly rare defence of his B grade Championship title, again with a marked improvement on his tally from last year; this time 11 shots.
Cameron successfully saw off the challenge from runner-up, Dion McAlister, by 10 shots.
In 1972, Kerry Garlick won the Cowra Golf Club’s C grade Championships, a feat repeated by his son, Peter in 1977.
Peter’s son, Greg confirmed his desire to continue in his forefather’s footsteps over a “couple of drinks” two years ago and in fact nominated 2013 as the year he would do it.
Well, it seems that those empty schooner glasses did double as pretty good crystal balls, as Greg romped to the C grade Championship by no less than 19 shots from Championship runner-up John Holmes.
Greg’s four-round tally continued the trend of improvement, some 14 shots lower than last year’s C grade mark.
Sam McDonald completed a “three-peat” for the Junior Championship, while Gary Dolbel was crowned the Veteran’s Champion, carving 19 shots of last year’s winning total.
