CLUB DENIES RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER (Part 1)

May 20.  ESG&EC officials have been questioned by Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) investigators over the befoulment of Budgewoi Lake last Thursday.  Even at this early stage, the situation has been described by authorities as a looming ecological disaster.

The EPA has identified an area just out of bounds on the 14th hole of Toukley golf course as the source of the contamination, a spot where human stool types 6 and 7 were found in abundance, along with a few soiled baby wipes and some discarded imodium packaging.

EPA cleanup

Investigators surmise there maybe some interlaced toilets sheets yet to be uncovered in the surrounding areas although they remain perplexed as to why any individual would attempt to smuggle used toilet paper from the heavily polluted scene.

story continues in Part 2 ...

CLUB DENIES RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER (Part 2)

A despondent EPA spokesman said, "What we are truly struggling with is the absolute indifference shown towards this pristine waterway and it's marine life.  Can you believe it?  Not more than a 100 metres away from where we stand is an on course toilet !"

Hazmat team setting up hydrojet

Earlier the same day, police cordoned off a 10 metre exclusion zone around the mens toilet next to the Toukley pro shop after the discovery of a bubbling faecal time bomb.  After using industrial fans to disperse the sickening fumes, a fully-kitted Hazmat team (pictured) was eventually able to enter the crapper to decontaminate and breakdown the human waste through a combination of chemical retardant and 30 or so flushes from a high pressure hydrojet power washer.

Authorities contacted the club after reports suggested our members were playing a turd round that day but they've since been assured it was just a regular Day 3 of the World Series.  The club is fully co-operating as the search for the culprit, one very sick hombre indeed, continues.

LOVE CONQUERS ALL

Davidson Love III

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

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.

CRENSHAW WINS 2018 THE PINNACLE

Kenny Crenshaw

November 25.  Kenny Crenshaw (pictured) won his second match play title after defeating Notah Kelly 5 & 4 in The Pinnacle's championship match.  The final never reached any great heights after Crenshaw cruised to a lead of 4 up after only 7 holes.

So complete and one-sided was the victory, former President Seve Hemosteros left the presentation area early to attend the Sydney FC v Melbourne Victory soccer match.  "It couldn't be any worse than the crap served up today," opined the harsh critic of the club's playing standard.

Crenshaw's win comes on the back of a remarkable run - this was his third consecutive final.  He played off 9 when he lost to Grantief Goosen (2015), 6 when he lost to Java Haas (2017) and 3 in this year's final.  His 2019 handicap, +2, reflects that success.

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

NEWTOWN JETS REUNION DAY
SATURDAY AUGUST 31

Newtown's final home game of the season against the Newcastle Knights doubles as the Jets (nee Bluebags) official reunion day.  A dwindling number of the stars from the 60's, 70's and 80's will be there - or at least those who:
a) reside in a nursing home with a courtesy bus;
b) nearing the end of their custodial sentence, have been granted weekend release; and/or
c) are still on the run from authorities.

Henson Park Hotel

The ESG&EC is always well represented at this annual gathering, meeting at hipster heaven, the Henson Park Hotel (pictured), for a pre-game aperitif and watching the match (3pm kick-off) from the Lee Harvey Oswald grassy knoll adjacent to the King George V Memorial Grandstand and kiosk.

If you want to catch up before, during or after the game, let me know and we'll get it organised.

The Jets have two other home games before Reunion Day.  On Saturday, July 27, Henson Park hosts the Beer, Footy, Food Festival and the Jets play the Bulldogs (3pm start).  On Saturday, August 24, the Jets play the Wests Magpies for the Tom Raudonikis Cup (12.45pm start).

CATHOLICS vs. CONVICTS
30 Tales for 30 Years

Those few words printed in jest on a t-shirt by an savvy and opportunistic member took an already bitter rivalry and lit a blazing fire under it.  In October 1994, Per-Ulrik Fatcatsson (Christian Brothers) battled Seve Hemosteros (Canterbury High) to the death in arguably one of the greatest games in Match Play history.  It was sheer determination vs. swagger, Irish Catholic vs. Protestant, humble public servant vs. corporate heavyweight.  The outcome shocked the sporting world and it's taken nearly 25 years for the players to sit down and tell their stories.

SILLY LITTLE GAMES
30 Tales for 30 Years

Few of the thousands of players who make up today's multi-million dollar Earlwood Euchre industry know anything about the game's origins, nor do they pay any respect and, more importantly, dividends to it's founders.  That's about to change.  The ESG&EC, a joint custodian of the game, has engaged one of the country's greatest strategic and legal minds, Tack Nicklaus QC, to protect it's commercial interests.

I HATE TUBBY WALDORF
30 Tales for 30 Years

He had money, butchery smarts, a reverse golf grip and became the first player to achieve the club's coveted home and away double after winning the 1990 Match Play Championship and the 2002 World Series.  So why has Tubby Waldorf been disliked so intensely, by so many, for so long?  Maybe it's the much maligned Saturday morning horse tips or a wardrobe of striped shirts.  But sometimes, perception isn't reality.

DICK FALDO - ALL BY HIMSELF
30 Tales for 30 Years

He was The Beatles of golf - a charismatic, handsome and slender figure from Engadine who worked wonders with the ball and thrilled galleries wherever he went.  But Dick Faldo was also the lead in a Shakespearean tragedy fuelled by alcohol and the fading memories of old sexual conquests.  We'll talk with the neigbours who nailed a bottle opener to their wooden fence to facilitate his afternoon drinking sessions and meet the only woman from the 'Lender of Last Resort' who spurned his advances - his sister - and ask her the big question:  Does she now regret that rash decision?

FOUR 'DOG' DAYS IN NOVEMBER
30 Tales for 30 Years

The streak began when he defeated hot shot 6th seed Kenny Crenshaw 3 & 1 in the Round of 16.  A week later, Heckle Sunday, he beat the favoured Tubby Waldorf 2 & 1.  The following Friday he saw off the well-fancied Hunter Meehan 5 & 3.  In the final match he defied the odds to beat Peard Fulke 3 & 1.  Was it skill, good fortune or an old-fashioned and carefuly orchestrated betting coup that turned the perennial underdog, Bourkie Baird, into the 2013 Match Play Champion?

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
30 Tales for 30 Years

On December 10, 2013, Sotheby's London office auctioned off what could be considered the most important historical document in sports history - Seve Hemosteros' original World Series of Golf blueprint, drawn up at Robo Mediate's Macleay Place residence over a few drinks on Boxing Day, 1988.  This is the story of one man's fanatical quest to win back this seminal artifact at auction and bring the document home to Earlwood where Hemosteros was born and raised.  25 years after he personally witnessed the blueprint's creation, Mediate inspired a group of wealthy benefactors to dream his dream and take a few shares in a couple of greyhounds as well.

THE PRINCE OF PROFANITY
30 Tales for 30 Years

Reader discretion is recommended - this story may contain frequent coarse language.

The young viscount rescued from a post-apocalyptic Warsaw became infamous in his adopted country when, at the age of 5, the first English words he uttered both contained four-letters, one beginning with F and the other beginning with C.  Sitting for the HSC in 1973, he could not have been any prouder when he was awarded 2 F's and 4 C's by the Board of Studies.  And nearly half a century later, it's hard to discern even the slightest expansion to the now Flemington Fruit Markets f*#klift driver's simple vocabulary.  WTF*#k!!

SMALL POTATOES: WHO KILLED THE PRESIDENTS CUP
30 Tales for 30 Years

A bold challenge, a fearless experiment and ultimately, a spectacular failure.  In 1999 a new event challenged the establishment's cosy duopoly, the World Series and Match Play Championship, but after a promising start at North Ryde and a final round at Eastlakes less than a decade later, The Presidents Cup disappeared from the ESG&EC sporting calendar.

HIT 'EM HARD - MY LIFE WITH BIG BALLS, BABES AND BOOZE
30 Tales for 30 Years

We remember the blonde mullet, a cigarette glued to the lips and those enormous fairway splitting drives that propelled him to victory at the 1995 World Series.  We knew Big Jack Daly as much for those larrikin traits and his large dusters as for the constant drinking, womanising and swearing, mostly done off the course, that forced him into rehabilitation and a premature sporting retirement.

YOU DON'T KNOW BOO BOO
30 Tales for 30 Years

He's someone who played two sports professionally - golf and soccer.  When speaking to others about him, I noticed something I'd never experienced before.  At the mere mention of his name, people either immediately lit up in excitement or fell over laughing.  Boo Boo's story isn't really a sports story, it's a superhero story.  A superhero who broke his thumb shaking hands before an over 45's game in the Sutherland Shire minor leagues and, as a result, signed on as a marquee player with Sydney FC and became the face of Nike's landmark ad campaign, "You Don't Know Boo Boo".
