Mer­rigum golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

It was a game of two halves for the win­ner of Mer­rigum’s sta­ble­ford event on Satur­day.

It was an­other per­fect day for golf and it looked like the win­ner Rod Ne­wham was go­ing to have the per­fect round to match.

Start­ing on the front nine Rod went within a whisker of av­er­ag­ing three points a hole, reach­ing the half-way mark af- ter hav­ing com­piled a mas­sive 26 points.

A bit of a wob­ble was no­ticed in one rear wheel early on the 10th but he did man­age to scram­ble a re­spectable two points.

How­ever the axle shat­tered on the next hole and from there on it was a bat­tle to just snatch a point here and there.

He did col­lect 14 points on the back nine for a to­tal of 40.

In the wash-up Rod was three points ahead of run­ner-up Dar­ryl John­ston with his only sac­ri­fice be­ing a shot from his hand­i­cap next time he hits the course at Mer­rigum.

Join­ing Dar­ryl as ball com­pe­ti­tion win­ners were Rus­sell Dunn and Roger Gil­lon who both fin­ished with 35 points.

Near­est-the-pin win­ners were Roger Gil­lon on the ninth, Ash San­ders on the jack­pot 12th and vis­i­tor Tony Mar­guc­cio on the 14th.

This Satur­day’s event is stroke for the Priv­i­lege Cup spon­sored by Bruce Brown and in­cor­po­rates least putts spon­sored by Si­mon and Tash Do­herty.

This Fri­day night is Pre­sen­ta­tion Night so come along and cel­e­brate the past year of golf with all the win­ners. Who knows, you may be one of them as there are still sev­eral tro­phies that will be an­nounced on the night.

Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27 is the New­ton’s Par­cel Ser­vice spon­sored open two-per­son ambrose for which teams can be male, fe­male or mixed.

It is al­ways a fan­tas­tic and fun day with abun­dant ex­cel­lent tro­phies so make sure you are a part of it.
