Sasha who unwittingly qualified for the Divot Party Trophy through his determination to make sure the Club Championship course preparation went ahead, so much so he did it single handed. In tough conditions with several winter greens Sasha was able to best Ged Grogan and Stu Mason (both Nett 71) by just one stroke.
