Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF: The Blue Team has won round one of the Kerry Hall Me­mo­rial Tro­phy Chal­lenge, which started on Sun­day.

The first round took the form of sin­gles match­play with the se­lec­tion of each team be­ing made in­de­pen­dently by their re­spec­tive cap­tains.

The KHMTC is a fol­low-on from the Pres­i­dent’s Cup com­pe­ti­tion, in­sti­gated by the im­me­di­ate past pres­i­dent, Kerry Hall, played over four rounds in dif­fer­ing for­mats.

On Sun­day Kym Hill led the Blue Team in the ab­sence of team cap­tain Reg Kercher, win­ning 10 games while Ron Jamieson’s Red Team won six.

Round two will be played on Sun­day, in the form of a twoball am­brose.

The sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion pro­duced strong re­sults, in­clud­ing a club record for the low­est nett score of 57, achieved by Wilf Her­weg in the men’s B-grade.

Her­weg also won the Kevin Mills WFX En­cour­age­ment Award for the vast im­prove­ment in his game.

Danny York won the Agrade ti­tle with a round of 66, clear­ing Peter Browning (68) while Ross Richards net­ted the best gross score.

Rod Wecker had the long­est drive.

Her­weg’s record score was good enough for the B-grade nett ti­tle while Ron Thynne fin­ished sec­ond with 71.

Mark McDougall won the gross prize and Brad Ham­mond took home the long­est drive ti­tle.

For the ladies, Penny Wardroper was the vic­tor, carding 70 from Robyn Mills (72).

Anna Win­ter­bourn was the gross win­ner while she also picked up a long­est drive prize, as did Joanne Moyni­han. Near­est-the-pins went to Peter Browning and Pauline Red­path.
