Andrew Cowper on the tee at Dubbo Golf Course yesterday.A brilliant one-over-par round of 72 scratch and 68 nett saw Peter Allan finish on top in Division 1 of the Genysis Consistency Pointscore that finished after four rounds on Wednesday at the Dubbo Golf Club.
Club president and principal of Genysis Wealth Advisers, Sandy Dunshea presented the trophies with Alan Tolman claiming Division 2 honours for the second year in succession.
Both Allan and Tolman won $500 shopping vouchers at Brennan’s Mitre 10.
The competition was conducted over four Wednesday events with Allan’s scores very good considering the windy conditions in the latest round.
“I think the four-round competition was a fantastic concept and thanks to Sandy for his sponsorship,” Allan said.
“Last year I was the leader after three rounds and fell away at the last bit, I didn’t want the same thing to happen again on Wednesday.
“One of the main things in my favour was in the recent club championships I had the lead in the seniors championships on the last day and really put my head down – the same aspect of my game was needed this week.”
Consistency was certainly the key to Allan’s success with his round on the 1 to 18 layout made up of just one birdie (on the par-5 7th) and two bogies.
The win capped off a big week for the Allan twins as on Saturday Peter’s brother Grahame won the Tiger stableford with a sub-par round of 42 stableford points.
“I reminded Grahame that he may have had the best round, but I was more consistent remembering that he was also in the race for the Genysis prize but crashed with 80 on Wednesday,” Peter Allan said.
The Division 2 prize for Alan Tolman was also noteworthy having won the event the previous year and like this time, he was three shots behind the leaders before charging home.
On Wednesday he carded a round of 90 scratch and 71 nett to win from overnight leader Tony Geraghty and Jim Oriel.
Geraghty on Wednesday didn’t play up to expectations with a round of 102-80 while John Reynolds who was running second behind Geraghty also had trouble carding a round of 110 and 88 nett.
“I wasn’t feeling all that well after golf on Wednesday so I didn’t hang around for presentations but it was nice to find out that I had won.” Tolman said.
“Thanks to Sandy Dunshea and Genysis for putting on the event and for me to win it again is very pleasing.”
