Kercher duo kings of the course

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

THE Kercher name dom­i­nated Sun­day’s Whit­sun­day Golf Club round, with fa­ther and son duo Dean and Reg win­ning A and B-grade re­spec­tively.

Dean carded 37 at the Proser­pine Golf Club at the week­end to win ahead of Ron Jamieson (35) in the Agrade field while Ross Richards claimed the best gross score.

Mick Ca­ton’s drive earned him a prize but it was Dean’s son, Reg, who en­sured it was a win­ning day for the Kercher fam­ily.

Reg won B-grade with 39 points, fin­ish­ing clear of Kevin Mills (32).

The ladies’ victory was Penny Wardroper (44) ahead of Jac­qui Wall (32) but it was first time prize win­ner Leanne Aber­nethy who stole the di­vi­sion, claim­ing a maiden long­est drive ti­tle.

Pauline Red­path rounded out the award win­ners with the best gross score.

Near­est-the-pins went to Kym Hill (no. 9), Don Hope (13 and 16), Ross Richards (2) and An­nie Kercher (16).

This Sun­day the Whit­sun­day Golf Club will host a two-ball am­brose with nine drives each.

WIN­NERS: Reg Kercher (B-grade), Penny Wardroper (ladies) and Dean Kercher (A-grade) were the toast of the Whit­sun­day Golf Club on Sun­day.
