Ideal conditions make for close play
■ WHITSUNDAY GOLF
DESPITE several of the regular players being on an overseas trip, 18 Whitsunday players turned out for a Two Ball Ambrose competition last Sunday.
Golfing conditions were ideal, not too hot, not too much breeze and the course was in excellent condition.
Scores were close with victory going to Ross Richards and Kym Hill on a countback from Jacqui Wall and Rod Wecker, both on 65.5 nett.
Third place went to Anna Winterbourn and Ron Jamieson with a very creditable 68.25 nett.
Longest drives went to Rod Wecker (A Grade), Kevin Mills (B Grade), Tiina Randmae (Ladies 1-39) and Linda Wardroper (Ladies 40+)
Nearest the pins for the day went to Anna Winterbourn and Ron Jamieson with their second shot on the second hole, Kym Hill and Ross Richards with their second shot on the ninth, Dean Kercher and Brendon Meharry with their first shot on the 13th, and Benn Ryan and Joanne Moynihan with their second shot on the 16th. Next Sunday will be a single Stableford competition with tee off as normal.
MIGHTY CHAMPS: Ambrose winners Ross Richards and Kym Hill.
