Victorian Open Masters Invitational Tournament, June 2022

Date: 12/06/2022
Course: Growling Frog, Yan Yean, Victoria

The Bloke

Winner on nnomads GC handicap

‘The Bloke VOMITs’

So, the 3rd nnomads Golf Club major event for 2022, was the Victorian Open Masters Invitational Tournament, again run at the Growling Frog, in horrendous cold and rainy conditions. And again, eight vaccinated and unvaccinated competitors stepped onto the tee to contest the event, which excluded a couple of wimps who bailed out at the last minute with questionable excuses.

And again, The Bloke (95,18,77) easily won by 6 strokes from 2nd placegetter The Cardinal (108,25,83), with TJ (107,23,84) a stroke behind.

This meant The Bloke again took the major Bladder points (see - Year to date Bladder), and remains in top spot on the club championship leader board (see YTD 2022 championship results).

The committee congratulates The Bloke on another sensational win and indeed all winners on the day. The committee reminds members to book early for the next major event being the Swan Island nnomads Cup (SINC), to be run on the Bellarine Peninsular in August. (See Full VOMIT event report)

‘Blessed are the Big Nose’ Cup, April 2022

Date: 16/4/2022
Course: Yarra Bend, Fairfield, Victoria

The Bloke

Winner on nnomads GC handicap

‘Bloke is good on Friday’

So, the first nnomads Golf Club major event for 2022, was the ‘Blessed are the Big Nose’ Cup run at Yarra Bend on Good Friday using the new course format. Originally there were 8 double vaccinated competitors booked into play. However, after a COVID intervention and an own goal from Pup, an elite group of six members ended stepping onto the tee to contest the event.

It has to be said there was some good golf played on the day. Within that context, The Bloke (88,17,71) was a standout, winning by 1 stroke from 2nd placegetter Stavros the Greek (95,23,72), with The Cardinal (103,24,79) a few strokes behind. Note: The Cardinal made a mistake when adding up the card which resulted in Slugger being awarded 3rd place at the presentations, including the prize ball, instead of The Cardinal.

This meant The Bloke took the major Bladder points (see - Year to date Bladder), and moved into top spot on the club championship leader board (see YTD 2022 championship results).

The committee congratulates The Bloke on a sensational win and indeed all winners on the day. The committee reminds members to book early for the next major event of 2022, the ‘ANZAC Day Medal to be run later in April. (See Full BBNC event report)
