WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF

A FIELD of 24 Whit­sun­day golfers teed off around 7.30am for the Septem­ber monthly medal com­pe­ti­tion last Sun­day.

Al­though the drive in to Proser­pine may have been a lit­tle foggy, it was all clear on the course for play­ers.

B and C graders scored a lit­tle bet­ter than the A graders, and as al­ways, com­pe­ti­tion and laugh­ter were the main ele­ments dur­ing the day.

A grade was won by Ross Richards on nett 74 ahead of run­nerup Bren­don Me­harry on 75 while Kym Hill had the best gross score.

Mal Carter won B grade on 66 while Ti­ina Rand­mae was sec­ond on 70, on a count back from Anna Win­ter­bourn.

Ernie Hol­stein had the best gross score.

C grade was won by Reg Kercher on 66, one ahead of Wilf Her­weg on 67 and Tess Aitken had the best gross score.

Long­est drives came from Ross Richards (A grade), Mick Cooper (B grade), Reg Kercher (C grade) and Ti­ina Rand­mae (ladies).

Near­est-the-pins in A and B grade were Mal Carter on hole 2, Kym Hill on 9, Ross Richards on 13 and Kym Hill on 16.

The only near­est-the pin in C grade came from Wilf Her­weg’s sec­ond shot on 13.

For the ladies Ti­ina Rand­mae was near­est-the-pin on hole 9 and Beryl Miller was clos­est on 13 and 16.

The Guz­zler’s Cup was won by A grade, Ross Richards who will en­joy a free drink paid for by his ri­vals in A grade un­til the next monthly medal.

Next Sun­day will be the first of two rounds for the club cham­pi­onship 2013. Tee off is at 7.30am
