Josh and Blade Gadd produced a record performance to spread-eagle a strong field and claim the 2021 Penrith Golf Club foursomes championship last Saturday.
Stockley and Bishop stayed in contention for the runner-up position, with a second-round 75 leaving them on 147, two strokes behind Hughes and Smyth. It was enough to secure Stockley and Bishop the 36-hole net title.
For the Gadd family, it continues a terrific year, highlighted by dad Jeff’s brilliant course record-equalling 63 in the Penrith Open in March. And it sets the stage for an enthralling club championship starting this Saturday with the Gadds vying for family bragging rights and also facing strong challenges from Hughes and Smyth and also Will Arnold among a long list of high-calibre challenges for the club’s primer title.
