Weekly Update Friday 1 September 2017

1-SeptemberNEED-TO-KNOWKade StrokeplayCongratulations Kade McBride

Sanctuary Cove Member, Kade McBride, has won the Queensland Men’s Stroke Play Championships which was finalised at Pacific Harbour Golf Club on Tuesday 22 August.

Kade won by an impressive 9 shots over his nearest competitor and was the only player in the 156 strong field to finish under par for the tournament with his 4 round total of 6 under 282.

After 36 holes, Kade led by 9 shots but at the start of the final 36 hole day, he started double, double, triple bogey to have his overnight lead cut to 1.

Some serious soul searching and a stern talking to himself steadied the ship and Kade clawed his way back to 2 over par for his final 36 holes to take the convincing win.

Kade’s serious talent was on display this week with his 72 holes including 20 birdies and an eagle in his Strokeplay win.

Moving into the QLD Amateur Matchplay as the No.1 Qualifier, Kade continued his good form and moved through his first round winning convincingly 5 and 3.

After progressing through the quarter finals with a 2 and 1 win, Kade was narrowly beaten by the eventual winner, Douglas Klein, by 2 and 1.

Congratulations Kade on a great week’s performance and good luck on your upcoming professional career.

HOME-LAWN-CAREPaul McLeanMulching vs Catching

Your home lawnmower offers two options when mowing; mulching is when the grass is cut finely and put back on to the lawn and catching is when the cut grass is stored in a catcher on your lawnmower.

It is important to catch your grass during the cooler months rather than mulch it because clippings left on the lawn may cause fungal problems throughout your lawn.
