BRG Handicap Day - February 9 2008 - Gallery & Results

The first Bushranger Golf Handicap Day for 2008 was held on the Gunnamatta Course at The Golf Club St Andrews Beach in slightly testing conditions, with a couple of squalls threatening to dampen proceedings. In a thrilling contest, The Boominator prevailed with a virile 40 stableford points on a day when many well-credentialled Bushrangers struggled with the course and the conditions and posted some very low totals. He was able to hold off the fast finishing Big C and Sammy who stormed home together in the final group to jump on the podium in 2nd and 3rd place on 39 & 38 points. The final results are below and the standings for the new player of the year award are on the BRG POY page.
