Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF: Thir­tythree play­ers con­tested the Whit­sun­day Golf Club’s stroke com­pe­ti­tion, held in con­junc­tion with round two of the Club Cham­pi­onships on Sun­day.

Ex­cel­lent scores abounded with count­backs re­quired to de­cide the win­ners, which in­cluded Penny Wardroper in the ladies’ field and Ross Richards, who took out the over­all Club Cham­pion for 2015.

The nett win­ners in the Club Cham­pi­onships were Rod Wecker (A-grade), Mark McDougall (B-grade) and Penny Wardroper (ladies).

Ross Richards won the men’s A-grade stroke com­pe­ti­tion as well, card­ing 69 to pip Rod Wecker on a count­back.

The best gross score in the A-grade field went to Danny York while Rod Wecker hit the day’s longest drive.

Mark McDougall topped the B-grade com­pe­ti­tion, card­ing 64 to edge out Kevin Mills and Ron Thynne (75).

B-grade’s best gross score went to Mark Win­ter and Reg Kercher won the longest drive.

Penny Wardroper’s 63 was good enough for the ladies’ prize while Beryl Miller picked up the run­ner-up ti­tle with 73.

Anna Win­ter­bourn carded the day’s best gross score as well as a longest drive prize while Pauline Red­path was also ac­knowl­edged.

Near­est-the-pins went to Danny York (no.9 and 2), Mick Ca­ton (13), Ross Richards (16), Mal Carter (2) and Brad Hammond (16).

This week’s Kevin Mills WFX En­cour­age­ment Award went to Penny Wardroper for her out­stand­ing games over the last few weeks.

The much-loved ‘ dummy spit’ award went to a B-grade player, who won’t be named for putting four balls into the cane on the 14th hole.

This Sun­day the Air­lie Panel and Paint Novem­ber Monthly Medal will be played at the Proser­pine Golf Club.
