We asked last week about the great moments you've shared on the golf course with family or friends and “godders” impressed the judges with the feats of his wife, as you'll read below.

Godders gets a dozen Callaway HEX Black Tour golf balls for his tale but he won't be the last for Series One, which ends today.

Some people play their best golf when the competition is at its most intense and this week's National A Grade winner, Anthony Brown, might just be one of those.

Despite struggling through a form slump in recent months Anthony produced what he described as “the best golf I have ever played” to win the B Grade Narooma Seahorse Classic over three rounds of stroke at the weekend.

“I took up golf 13 years ago when I turned 50 and just couldn't play squash any more,” an ecstatic Anthony told us.

“And in all that time I have never played so consistently as I did for those three rounds at Narooma last week.

Leader's nervous wait

He's been sitting atop the Golf Link Cup leader board for the past two weeks but it's a nervous time for South Australia's Andy Lee.

A neck injury sustained during a basketball match recently means it's unlikely he'll get to play any more rounds before Series One comes to an end which means his fate is in the lap of the gods.

“I suppose it means I can't have a bad round either,” he says, “but I'd rather feel like I had a chance to improve.

 

Kendy can still make it

If you believe in jinxes then perhaps we put one on Castle Hill Golf Club's Kendy Drummond. Before we got in touch last week everything was going great for Kendy.

Golf was good, life was good and she was running 4th in the Golf Link Cup with a great chance of booking a trip to Royal Melbourne in November.

But within a day of receiving our email, and agreeing to chat about being part of our “Road to Royal Melbourne” series, it all seemed to come undone.

 

Month 3 Winners

“Completely hooked.” That's how Sharon Pretorius describes her relationship with golf, a game she only discovered in the last three years.

“Once we started (husband John converted at the same time) we got the bug completely and now it's a major part of our lives.

“We both just love it and we both wish we had started years ago.”

Sharron, a 23 marker at Ballina Golf Club in Northern NSW, has been on a bit of a hot streak lately which is how she came to be our Month Three C Grade winner.

 

Week 13 winners

Way back in Week One of the 2012 Golf Link Cup, when the tournament was still new and finding its feet, there was much excitement as the winners of the very first week of competition emerged from the computer.

The first name out was Kevin Fagg, of St George's Basin Golf Club, the inaugural A Grade National Weekly prize winner.

Well there was a sense of deja vu at the Golf Link Cup offices this week as Kevin's name once again emerged from the computer as the winner of the National A Grade prize,

With the clock ticking rapidly towards the end of Series One of the 2013 Golf Link Cup it's time to meet some of the contenders who are in with a chance of making it to Melbourne for the National Final in November.

Today we introduce you to Adrian Fleming, a 41-year-old 25 marker who only took up the game last year.

Free golf balls for best story

You might be wondering why on earth we have an earthquake related photo on a golf website and, frankly, that would be a fair question.

However, it will all become abundantly clear once you have read the tale that we awarded top prize in this week's story telling competition.

Best story wins 12 Callaways

Last week's “Tin Cup” storytelling challenge brought some terrific responses but we couldn't go past Peter Oakley's tale about the struggles of his poor mate “Mick” at Burswood's devilish 11th hole.

You can read Peter's offering below (for which he wins 12 Callaway HEX Black Tour golf balls) but it was actually from another story that this week's topic is born.

Eli's Extra 20 Metres

20 metres. That's how much further Eli Richardson reckons his new Callaway X-Hot driver goes compared to his old driver.

Eli won the X-Hot for his runner up performance in the Month One National results but due to some communication issues only took possession of the driver last week.

The 20-year-old scratch marker says he wishes it had arrived even earlier.
