Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SPORT - Peter Shine

AN ex­cel­lent field of 58 starters showed up to play for the Har­veyWa­roona Re­porter tro­phy in great con­di­tions for golf on Satur­day.

John Par­ton played a great round of golf at the Har­vey Golf Club, shoot­ing a bril­liant 67 to equal the course record and amass 45 sta­ble­ford points.

His great round was high­lighted by hav­ing five birdies on the back nine. Par­ton showed why he is the cur­rent club cham­pion high­lighted by his bril­liant iron play and put- ting. Michael Black­burn was the un­lucky run­ner-up with 42 points, with Phil Humphries third on 40 points and Brian Black­burn fourth with 39 points. Lyn Joyce was best of the ladies with 37 points. Trevor Pig­gott had an in­di­vid­ual high­light by hav­ing an ea­gle on num­ber 16.

On April 11 the scroungers event took place, spon­sored by Kevin Roney.

An ex­cel­lent field of 42 play­ers turned up to a well-pre­sented course. Scores were not as high as in pre­vi­ous scroungers events.

Joel Cata­lano won the day with 39 points to beat Jim Bianchi on a count­back. John Pow­ell was third with 38 points beat­ing Lyn Joyce, Phil Humphries and Graeme Collins on a count­back. Cata­lano played con­sis­tent golf which was re­flected by his nine-hole scores of 20 and 19 points. Over the past few weeks he has been back to some of the form he showed in De­cem­ber so his win was well de­served.

Bianchi is find­ing form as he was run­ner-up on the pre­vi­ous Satur­day so a win should not be too far away for him.

Scroungers sta­ble­ford: Joel Cata- lano 39, Jim Bianchi 39, John Pow­ell 38, Lyn Joyce 38, Phil Humphries 38, Graeme Collins 38, Harold Bris­lin 37, Tony Joyce 35, Mitch McSweeney 35, An­drew Black­burn 35, Ric Ei­dam 35, Meg Ainsworth 35, Ming Yap 34, Cec Hol­man 34, Jerome Oliver 33, Dave Muller 33, Jim Baggetta 33, Mal Cook 33, Rod Thom­son 32, Paul Fonck 32, Trevor Pig­gott 32, Peter Castelli 32, Peter Shine 31, Bren­dan Dob­son 31, Frank Mazza 31, Ken Lo­max 31. 4Ball sta­ble­ford: Paul Welch, Phil Humphries 47.
