Golfers bogged

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

A GROUP of Moss­man play­ers trav­elled to the Sun­shine Coast only to find them­selves bogged down in some soggy play and this cut Tues­day’s field to 28.

The par event win­ner was Kym Row­ley with +2, sec­ond was Ge­orge Page +1 on a count-back to Ian Prewett, and near­est­the-pins were Larry Smith on 6, Brian Mcdon­ald on 8, Peter Chris­field on 10 and 13 and Brett Jurie on 17.

The nine-hole stable­ford Wed­nes­day com­pe­ti­tion was won by Adam Fer­gu­son on a count-back to Kerri-lynn Wil­liams, and near­est-the-pins were Rus­sell Watkins on six and Adam Fer­gu­son on eight.

Four­teen ladies con­tested Thurs­day’s Par event, which was won by Kerri-lynn Wil­liams on +2 on a count-back to Treveen Page, third was Glenda Chris­tensen and fourth was Shona Bar­bour, and near­est­the-pins were Treveen on six and Ker­ri­Lynn on eight and 10.

The heavy rain on Satur­day morn­ing re­duced the Med­ley field to 32 men and one lady player. Although the con­di­tions im­proved in the mid­dle of the day, a storm at 4pm made scor­ing dif­fi­cult for some.

The win­ner was Brett Jurie with 40 points, sec­ond was Bob Tyrrell on 35 and third was Dun­can Cun­ning­ham on 34, and near­est-the-pins were Brett on 6, Vic Dowler on eight and Ricky White on 17.
