On the afternoon of Friday 29 May, a small but elite field of seven Queensland Chapter members played a nine hole stableford competition over the front nine at Royal Queensland Golf Club.

The event was won by Arthur O’Shea with 17 stableford points from a handicap of 11. Arthur’s new set of hickories – comprising matching flanged irons acquired from Ross Baker at Barnbougle – immediately repaid his investment in their first competition outing; the nickname ‘Flange’ O’Shea may catch on.

Runner-up with 15 points was former AGHS Queensland Chapter Secretary Rob King-Scott, and third with 13 points was Andrew Baker.

Some of our regular players were unavailable on this occasion due to a programming clash with an inter-club event, while a number of others were enjoying their golf – and other summer delights – in Europe and North America.
