The Killara Occasional Cup
(or KOCUP)  

Killara Golf Club, Thursday 11 March 2021
TD Peter Thornton

The Event

It proved to be a good day for golfing cool and overcast with just a little bit of drizzling - which, of course, contrasted with the banter which included a fair bit of grizzling but that’s normal and the course was in very fine condition.

The objective of the KOCUP was to try give everyone a chance to score 36 points, even if they didn’t end up the winner. Four managed to exceed 36, while three others got right on 36. The remainder of us, as it turned out on the day, needed more handicap help than I had given us! But that’s golf – always variable for we high handicappers. In the end, Burnsie scored a stonking 44 points off 32 with a margin of 4 back to Alan Waddington on 40 off 28 – if only he’d been able to keep his front nine form of 25 points going.

Worthy of mention was Declan O’Donovan’s round of 40 points off 2 which included one wipe. Those who saw it said it was inspirational – well done Declan.
