Fellow bandits Percival and Wreaves end year on a high at Pine Ridge Golf Club

The golfing world must have been looking the other way this weekend as no reports of the final round of the year for the Fray Bentos Tour members have emerged.

Seven players took to the course (Pine Ridge Golf Club) on a wet and windy day after one bailed (Rob Young) at 1am the morning before…. rumours that heavy drinking was a big influence in this, mix that with an early tee time and that was enough for Young to bail out.

So how did it go….. Well, let’s just say it was a mixed bag for the players.

Price Struggles Off The Tee

Price several times did not make it past the women’s tees, in fact, one time ending up 20 yards behind where he teed off. Unfortunately, he did not play to the pants down rules…..the board are greatly disappointed and will be reviewing this, and will provide a statement later on. Price declined to comment on the matter.

An image of Joe Holt has emerged with his 7 iron snapped in two. Percival, Foulis & Holt are sticking to their story that it happened during a shot. Holt not known for his anger outbursts. “I’m not Ben Foulis” claimed Holt, “I don’t go round snapping clubs out of anger. I got stuck behind a tree, didn’t want to take a drop, so I went for it, unfortunately, the tree won.”

There were however 2 standout performers on the day. Playing in separate groups they had no idea that the other was having an absolute blinder. That is until this picture with the message “King Bandit” was received by the second group as they approached the 18th.

“King Bandit”

It is thought the message was meant to throw Wreaves off his game as the rumours of an excellent round had leaked to the first group.

“Jonny had been quietly knocking in pars in all day, hitting chips to inches away from the hole, by the 14th I thought…. shit he must for on for a good score here” claimed Chris (who 3 putted 9 times in his round, and was not in the mood to comment on his round).

And he was right, Wreaves was having a blinder, his best ever round in fact, finishing on 42 points!

“Everything just came together today, the swing felt good, my chipping… fuck knows where that came from, everything was just going exactly as I imagined it.“ said Wreaves. “I can’t believe I haven’t won today, to walk off the final hole with 42 points and come second is just ridiculous.”

That’s because Percival, with his new irons, had also had his best round ever, coming in with 45 points. Yes, 45 points… King Bandit indeed! He was 11 over par, carding the lowest gross score of any Fray Bentos tour player in 2017!

With birdies all over the place, even an albatross chance, Percival absolutely dominated the course and in such horrible conditions too.

“I’m not going to lie, I am delighted. To finish the year like that is incredible, ” said Percival.

Both players have obviously had the handicaps cut as they go into 2018!
