Mer­rigum golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

The first round of the sum­mer four-ball was played at Mer­rigum on Satur­day.

The event was 4BBB stroke and it was keenly con­tested at the top of the leader­board.

Jeff Parry and Roger Gil­lon had the round of the day, fin­ish­ing with 61 nett, which was one shot ahead of their clos­est ri­vals.

The pair earned the max­i­mum 10 points to set the pace early in the five-round event.

For his good form Jeff will have a shot less to play with on his hand­i­cap the next time he hits the Mer­rigum course.

Ash San­ders and Bruce An­drews were the run­ners-up with 62 and could prove to be a for­mi­da­ble com­bi­na­tion in fu­ture rounds with both play­ers hav­ing hand­i­caps which are ex­ces­sive when com­pared to abil­ity.

Next best was the pair of Phil Sav­age and Jeff Ne­wham with 63 on a count back from Si­mon and Craig Do­herty.

Near­est-the-pins were won by Tash Do­herty on the ninth, Phil Sav­age on the jack­pot 12th and Tony Bor­relli on the 14th.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Si­mon Do­herty who got to play two of the coun­try’s great cour­ses in
