LOVE FEST CONTINUES AT 2019 MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

November 24, 2019.  Club President Davidson Love III created history today when he became the first player in 31 years to claim the club's coveted calendar year golf majors clean sweep.

Davidson Love III

A hot favourite entering the Championship Match, Love (picture supplied by ESG&EC Media) gradually wriggled free from the closer than expected challenge to defeat a tenacious Danny White Shark 4 & 3.

As well as the unprecedented calendar double, he now has an imposing 5-0 record in championship matches to add to his 3 World Series titles in the past 6 years.  There's a lot to be said for an early retirement and a new set of metal drivers.

NEWTOWN JETS 2019 NRL STATE CHAMPIONS

Billy Magoulias

October 6, 2019.  Another week, another chip from his own side of halfway, another last minute miracle from the Jets magician Billy Magoulias (pictured).  This time it was Jackson Ferris on hand to gather the bouncing ball and race away to score under the posts as the full-time siren sounded to give the Jets an 18-16 lead over Queensland's Burleigh Bears.  Retiring player Greg Eastwood kicked the conversion and Newtown cult hero and front-rower Toby Rudolf was named player of the match.  A 4 minute highlights package can be viewed on the NSWRL website by clicking here.

NEWTOWN JETS 2019 CANTERBURY CUP PREMIERS

Will Kennedy

September 29, 2019.  It took until the 8th minute of extra time for the Newtown Jets to kill off Parramatta's feeder side Wentworthville 20-15 in the 2019 Canterbury Cup Grand Final and cap off another great season for coach Greg Matterson and the team.  To watch a 4 minute Grand Final highlights package on the NSWRL website and enjoy some Billy Magoulias Magic and the absolute class of man of the match Will Kennedy (pictured), click here.

RESULTS FOR FATCAT'S NRL TIPPING COMPETITION

September 8, 2019.  It came down to the last game of the season to determine the outcome in Fatcat's annual NRL Tipping Competition, "A Competition With A Difference".  Charbel Hatem's epic 19 point final round saw him jump from 8th place to equal first with Peter Escott and they split $3,500.

Marc Taylor finished 3rd ($1,000) 3 points behind the winning duo and 1 point ahead of BJ Malone and last year's winner Chris Ryan ($500 each).

Rounds 17-25 segment winners were Shaun Froggatt (overall 135pts) and Marc Taylor (handicap 53pts).  The inaugural Gilling Legacy "winner" was Annie Mustow who redeemed her $80 entry fee after a thoroughly underwhelming debut season.

The 6 tipsters who gained entry - through a combination of skill and good fortune - to the competition's $250 lucky door prize, The Finals Series, are Charbel Hatem, Peter Escott, Mark Young, Michael Blaser, Connie Spence and John Hermsen.

DATE CONFIRMED FOR 2020 WORLD SERIES

August 27, 2019.  World Series XXXII will be played Monday, May 18 through Friday, May 22.  The first and most important piece in the planning jigsaw, Shelly Beach, has been locked in for Friday's Championship Round.

And following the shocking revelations of money laundering and human trafficking revealed in the Federal Parliament in recent weeks, the club is officially distancing itself from junket operator Blue Sheedy who had aligned his business activities with the popular week-long sporting and cultural festival.

Of particular concern for authorities is the allegation an illegal casino has been operating from inside his rented luxurious waterfront apartment.  The media-shy entrepreneur has been accused of luring drunken and weary high-rollers back to his apartment with the promise of "wine, men and song" plus a few tasty morsels like cheese and crackers, chocolate bullets and salted peanuts.

VALE GAZ PHILLIPS

August 5, 2019.  The club received news this morning of the sudden death of UK-based tipster and past ESG&EC member Gary Phillips.  Gaz suffered a heart attack during a social cricket match and was unable to be revived.

Gary Phillips

This is a very recent photo of Gaz (middle) borrowed from the Pudsey St Lawrence Cricket Club website (hover or tap image to enlarge).  He's with brother-in-law John McGovern (hat), his niece Frances and sister, Lyn McGovern.

Our deepest condolences to Tracy and Liam on the loss of a loving husband and father and to all his family and friends.

Vale Gaz - a great friend to many on these shores.

LOVE CONQUERS ALL

May 17, 2019.  After a near 25 year drought, Club President Davidson Love III (picture supplied by ESG&EC Media) has now strung together 3 World Series of Golf victories (2013, 2014 and 2019) in his past 6 starts.

Davidson Love III

Love finished on 6pts with wins in Monday's teams match play (paired with Notah Kelly) and Tuesday's stableford aggregate (partnered with Hunter Meehan) and seconds in the individual stableford (29pts) and stroke events (net 82).

Shire resident Hunter Meehan showed a welcome return to form with only his second podium finish in the past 15 starts.  Meehan's results were a 2 & 1 loss in the teams match play (Rich Kent), a win in the stableford aggreagte (Love), a fourth and fifth in the individual events to finish on 13pts.

Brookvale Oval NRL interchange official Peard Fulke rounded out the placings on 16pts after a win in the teams match play (Romero), a fourth in the stableford aggregate (Strange), and a third and eighth in the individual events.

EARLWOOD SECURITIES EXCHANGE

Beercoin

Beercoin's listed price is underpinned by the cost of a schooner (425ml) of Resch's served in the public bar of The Entrance Hotel during the World Series of Golf (1 schooner = 1 Beercoin).  In the 12 months to May 2019, Beercoin's market capitalisation rose 4.5% to $1,035.  Hover or tap Beercoin image to enlarge.

TOUKLEY ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER

Tubby Waldorf was accused of failing to observe the rudimentary protocols of golf handicapping.  Opposition leader Alexander Downer said, 'The annual Match Play Championship is one of Australia's premier sporting and cultural events, combining the pomp, ceremony and tradition of a British royal coronation with the appalling drunken behaviour of Munich's Ocktoberfest patrons

BATTLE FOR ESG&EC PRESIDENCY

and I say to them today, I will not hand control of the ESG&EC over to Davidson Love III, Edwardo Romero and Big Jack Daley.  The old regime will never again dictate the fortunes of our club, nor will they regain control of what they covet most - access to the potentially lucrative Dickworth-Lewis golf handicap algorithms

THE FATCATSSON REVIEW

the evidence is that the player's basic golf skills are diminishing in key areas; in particular driving, long irons, short irons, steam irons (Jose-Mumma Olazabal being the sole exception), chipping, sand play and putting.  General athleticism, game sense/match awareness and golf expertise has fallen markedly in this period

SATURDAY MAY 16 - THE 20/20 PERFECT VISION TOUR

Like every May for the past 31 years, the ESG&EC will pack up it's bag of tricks, golf sticks and 1. Scanlen's footy cards and travel up to the NSW Central Coast to conduct it's week-long festival of sport and provide solace and cheer to the 2. good burghers of The Entrance.

To assist players with their preparation, the club offers voluntary but popular pre-tournament 1, 2 or 3 day sea-level acclimatisation and hydration programs run by the self-accredited industry leader in hydration theory (but certainly not practice), The Shearman Institute.

MONDAY MAY 18 - WORLD SERIES OF GOLF XXXII

The feature tournament of 'The 20/20 Perfect Vision Tour', the World Series of Golf is the ESG&EC's premier event.  It is played over 4 rounds (2 teams and 2 individual days) at accredited courses on the World Series rota - Gosford, Wyong, Kooindah Waters, Morisset, Everglades, Toukley and the traditional home of Friday's Championship Day, Shelly Beach (formerly known as Tuggerah Lakes).

Three-time winner and defending champion Davidson Love III will headline the expected international field of *Seve Hemosteros, Rich Kent, *Kipper Parnevik, *Peard Fulke, *Garry Mize, *Java Haas, Kenny Crenshaw, Sir Dick Faldo, *Hunter Meehan, *Edwardo Romero, *Cavey Pavin, *Soldier Montgomerie, *Notah Kelly III, Trent Strange, *Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson and *Tubby Waldorf (*past champion).

NOVEMBER - MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

Dating back to 1989, The Championship is the ESG&EC's second golf major.  Once famously described in Federal Parliament as ".. combining the pomp, ceremony and tradition of a British royal coronation with the appalling drunken behaviour of Munich's Ocktoberfest patrons ..", the tournament continues to draw record fields and healthy crowds to the challenging Cooks Peninsula links course, the R&A Marrickville.

The tournament is a handicap match play event spanning 3 consecutive weekends and, with the possible exception of the semi-finals, competitors must walk the course and comply with the nominated playing schedule.  The start date will be confirmed mid-June after consultation with R&A officials and the ESG&EC astrologer.

Five-time winner and defending champion Davidson Love III headlines the expected international field of Seve Hemosteros, Garry Mize, *Java Haas, *Grantief Goosen, *Dick Faldo, *Peard Fulke, *Bourkie Baird, *Soldier Montgomerie, Karrie White, Hunter Meehan, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson, Danny White Shark, Lewis Oosthuizen, *Notah Kelly III and *Tubby Waldorf competing for the prestigious Stephen Angry Anderson Trophy (*past champion).  All members are welcome to compete in the Don Lane Invitational Qualifying Round even if they are unable to participate in the match play rounds.
