Mer­rigum golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

The main event for Mer­rigum golfers on Satur­day was the mixed Cana­dian club cham­pi­onship.

A great field last year was sur­passed this year which was fan­tas­tic and there were a num­ber of junior girls par­tak­ing which sug­gests the new life breathed into this event last year might con­tinue into the fu­ture.

Jan Chris­tou won the event last year with Craig Do­herty but this year de­cided a change of part­ners was nec­es­sary.

This year she played with the wily Phil Sav­age and made it two in a row with a score of 89-24-65; a great round by the pair which gave them a four­shot win over their clos­est ri­vals.

It was the same win­ning score as last year but with a greater mar­gin over the field this year.

Jan hasn’t played a lot of golf re­cently but clearly hasn’t lost her touch, and Phil would not have been short of ad­vice ei­ther.

Phil has been in good form of late, so they were a good com­bi­na­tion.

Both play­ers have to be on their game to shoot a score like that.
