Memorial underway with a Blue victory
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.
