Kercher king of the golf course

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


A GROUP of 22 play­ers took to the course last Sun­day to play a ver­sus par com­pe­ti­tion.

While the course has al­most re­cov­ered from the re­cent rain, a few heavy patches and un­pre­dictable greens tested play­ers on the day. Star of the day was Reg Kercher with the long­est drive and two near­est-the-pins and the run­ner up spot in C grade.

Other wins were spread through­out the field.

Ver­sus par is a dif­fi­cult game in which to score well but per­se­ver­ance won out in the end.

A grade was won by Kym Hill on +1 ahead of run­ner-up Ge­off Har­ri­son on -6.

Mick Ca­ton took out B grade on a count back from Mark Ni­col while Ernie Hol­stein had the best gross score.

C grade’s win­ner was Tessa Aitken on +2 ahead of Reg Kercher who fin­ished square and Kevin Mills had the best gross score.

Long­est drives came from Brad Bowring in A grade, Mick Cooper in B, Reg Kercher in C and Jac­qui Wall for the ladies.

Near­est-the-pins in A/B grade were Bren­dan Me­harry on hole 2, Kym Hill on 9, Mick Ca­ton on 13 and Brad Ham­mond on 16.

In C grade near­est-the-pins was Reg Kercher on hole 9 and 16.

Near­est-the-pins for the ladies were Jac­qui Wall on hole 9, Beryl Miller on 13 and Ti­ina Raand­mae on 16.

Next Sun­day will be the Ju- ly monthly medal with tee-off at 7.30am.

Mem­ber­ship fees must be paid by the end of July and num­bers are needed for the Mag­netic Is­land trip.

GOLF­ING BUD­DIES: Kym Hill, Tessa Aitken, Mick Ca­ton, Reg Kercher and Mark Ni­col were among the win­ners for the Whit­sun­day Golf Club on Satur­day.
