The Sydney Opera House (SOH) has enthusiastically agreed to host a 'Long Drive' competition on Sunday, November 4, in the lead up to the Earlwood Social Golf & Euchre Club's revitalised match play tournament, The Pinnacle™.
A SOH spokesperson said, "Sunday mornings are fairly quiet around here so we don't mind having a group of elite golfers teeing off from the front of the Opera House and hitting towards Kirribilli House, home of that coal toting cultural philistine and Prime Minister ScoMo.
"We've even offered to fund a week long 'Nearest the Toaster' competition where players can practice their short game from the forecourt by aiming at The Parrot's apartment, a good 7-iron along Macquarie Strret. If we are forced to have sports desecrating this UNESCO World Heritage listed site, they'll be sports of our own choosing."

The international golfers whose arrival into Australia was delayed by flight problems last weekend will now be available to play the qualifying round (aka The Don Lane Invitational) at The Pinnacle™ after the federal government granted the ESG&EC's appeal to allow them out of quarantine on November 11.
Problems had arisen when a large shipment of top-flight Pinnacle contenders were stranded on the tarmac in Sharjah because of a cracked windscreen on their plane, delaying their arrival in Australia by 24 hours. The delay meant the players could not leave their Bexley North quarantine until Monday November 12, a day after the tournament's qualifying round. The government's decision means golfers like the Bedouin yak shoe salesman, Big Jack Daley, Dick Faldo's svengali Trent Strange and Muzzy Zoeller, a shady Middle Eastern goat exporter, can now compete in The Pinnacle.
ESG&EC President Davidson Love said in a statement, "The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources has confirmed that golfers currently stabled in the garage at Tubby Waldorf's Shaw Street Bed and Breakfast are eligible for release from quarantine on Sunday, 11 November 2018. DAWR’s approval is subject to all quarantine conditions being met by the golfers, including negative equine influenza tests and satisfactory final medical examinations."

ESG&EC President Davidson Love III is pushing for The Pinnacle™, a slots event that tee offs at the R&A Marrickville on November 11, to be the first nomination in a new category of global "elite" tournaments.
Love believes the likely field for the second edition of The Pinnacle is even stronger than the line-up Java Haas beat last year and he expects it to be this country's highest rating tournament of the year. "You look at the field and there are multiple major winners from across the globe," Love said.
The Pinnacle is also transforming the sporting landscape in Australia, and the intrigue around which 8 qualifiers will be secured by which slotholders is taking much of the attention away from the traditional football grand finals. Love couldn't have imagined the interest in the slots would be so high when he came up with the concept last year. "I'd like to thank our 8 slotholders for their collective belief in my unique vision.
"If you don’t innovate, you don’t move forward. We have been doing things the same way for the past 30 years and golf was getting smaller. This event is making golf bigger. The Pinnacle has marched golf into the 21st century - it's making golf great again!"

President Love has confirmed dates for next year's "31 Unlucky for Some Tour".
World Series of Golf XXXI will be held the week of May 13-17 with Shelly Beach already locked in for Friday's stroke round.
This early confirmation will allow for better planning and hopefully eliminate the possiblity of members being double booked by their household guardians.

Chris Ryan has won the club's 2018 NRL Tipping Competition after selecting a perfect round (10 winners) on the last weekend and pocketed $2,000 for his efforts.
Chris tallied 304 pts to finish two points clear of 2014 winner Jemima Todd ($1500) with a further point to Peter Escott ($1000) who lamented a last minute try off a forward pass in the Gold Coast-NQld game cost him a share of the winner's spoils. 4th ($600) and 5th ($400) went Vanessa McCoy (298 pts) and Mark Adams (296 pts).

Seve Hemosteros (pictured), the man primarily responsible for the creation of the Earlwood Social Golf & Euchre Club, has won the club's milestone 30th World Series of Golf.
Entering the final round at Shelly Beach as one of 3 co-leaders, the big-hitting sometime Blue Bay resident saw off their title aspirations and then repelled the late challenge of Peard Fulke to record his 4th Central Coast victory (previously won 1989, 1996 and 2003).
Fulke's late run was a welcome return to form for the veteran NRL Interchange Official and he was joined on the podium by 3rd place-getter, the uber-consistent Kenny Crenshaw.

The World Series of Euchre was played on May 16 at The Entrance Hotel Euchredome during the week-long '30 For 30 Tour'.
The knock-out event was held after Wednesday's races and began with the all important draw for partners conducted by "Six Card" Sheedy B.Eu (Hons), the Earlwood Euchre University's professor emeritus. According to the wily old matchmaker last year's winners, Tubby Waldorf and the good professor himself, started at long odds to team up let alone go back to back.
