John Kelley Classic - July 14th 2018


The excitement is building ,before the big clash at Bennett Valley tomorrow,for our 10 th annual John Kelley Classic....Firstly 39 members, which is the largest individual event in our clubs history wil be battling for this special trophy. 


There are 6 past winners in the field. They are Kieran Buckley, Dermot Burke, Matt Blume, Lenny Dinov and 2017 winner Julia DiRienzo. 


As this is a massive field, really wide open and hard to predict. Will make it short and sweet. There's an abundance of players in the 11 Hcp to 14 hcp range and I sense the winner will come from this range....


Jeff Husk. 10/1 favourite, current Grand Prix leader, with Hcp that is dangerous!


Garrett Greenwood. 12/1. Close runner up last year, solid all round game and sense a victory is coming in the remaining part of 2018!


Eddie Keegan...14/1... Ðealing with back issues for last 2 years, beaten in playoff in 2016. Can get justice off 14 Hcp


Jim Williams.16/1. Played well end of last year and team victory at Rancho earlier this season. Could go well here off 18 Hcp


Peter Ahern... 18/1. Played great golf recently at Foxtail...If he stays focused for 18 holes he is dangerous off 20 Hcp.


Remaining Field. 20/1. Lots of chances from these remaining 34 players.


Bookies Predictions. Greenwood & Keegan.


Good Luck to all!!!
