 Ryzak sets the standard The second week of competitive golf and the coming relaxation of the lockdown saw a full turn out in the Powell Brown Stableford Open. Although thunderstorms were on the way Saturday was blessed with plenty of sun. Saying that, there was electrifying golf on offer with the Ramsey course in excellent condition although the Friday night very welcome downpour slowed the greens enough to make putting just a tad uncertain. Again the Ladies were in competitive mode. Following her victory last week and now with a much lower handicap it was always going to be a challenge for Tilly Davies but a very acceptable 33 points was not too much of a disappointment as she just edged the day from Jill Power on 30 with Diana Cowley, Wendy Hogan and Pauline Kennish close behind all grouped in what was a very competitive 4 ball. As for the men, Martin Webb and 10 others shot better or equal par. Martin Kinrade played some ‘Seve’ golf but bogeys on 5 and 8 were costly on the outward half. Coming back the birdie on the 14th was soon cast aside with a disappointing bogey finish on 16 and 18 for a round of 37 points. Also on 37 with a good performance was Mark Skelding but there were also a couple of bogeys that proved to be costly, again on 16 and 18. The finishing holes at Ramsey are deceptively tough and with enough of an easterly breeze to question your clubbing on the closing par 3s the achievement of a par finish was always going to be valuable. Mark Woodhouse came in with 38 points and a pleasing 4th place. A birdie start for him set the tone for the round and all was going smoothly to put him right in contention on the back 9. A fine birdie on the 13th meant the prize was briefly in sight but it all fell apart on the 15th where he dropped two points and a finishing bogey said it all. A close battle ensued for the top 3. Stan Ryzak put in the foundations for an early challenge with a birdie on the 4th and the always difficult 7th brought him another par and 19 points on the front 9. The back 9 was a profitable period for him with an unusual approach to the 15th, via the 14th fairway! Despite a bogey on the 18th he racked up an inward 9 of 22 points, a 41 total and was the leader in the clubhouse. The challenge came from the two Dannys, Arneil and Foulis, both off a 5 handicap. Daniel Arneil played the early par threes very well with birdies on the 3rd and 9th to take a big chunk out of the two’s pot, but his bogey on the 4th proved to be costly. Still 20 points on the front 9 put him in the lead, an excellent score despite not being too happy with the putter. Danny Foulis had a shaky start dropping a shot on the 3rd and again on successive holes from the 7th to the 9th. On the back 9 Daniel Arniel dropped shots on the 13th, 15th and the 18th for 39 points which was not quite enough and an increasingly happy Stan Ryzak kept his place on the leaderboard. The excitement was growing but it was a big ask for Danny Foulis to take the lead. He really went for it though with a back 9 of 2 under gross consisting of birdies on the 10th and 13th and pars on the rest. He said afterwards that “it could have been so much better” and there is no doubt it will be from Danny Foulis this season. Great golf but it was just not enough and Stan Ryzak held onto top spot and a well-deserved victory in the Powell Brown. Next week sees two popular Open competitions with the Okell’s 4BBB on Saturday and the Grand Island and Hydro medals on Sunday. If you fancy the challenge and a visit to Ramsey just contact the Club on 812244 to book your place and take on the Ramsey course. Just a final note, the Juniors will see the return of coaching sessions at 1pm on Saturday 27th June at the practice ground and the Thursday Junior Club night will be on at 4.30pm on 2nd July from the 1st tee. Just check out the Club’s Junior Facebook page for details.
