XXXX Day draws crowds

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: It even­tu­ated into some very slow golf for the an­nual XXXX Day on Fri­day with 108 play­ers squeez­ing into only nine holes, with the back nine still closed af­ter last week­end’s flood­ing.

But good hu­mour and po­lite­ness re­sulted in a fun day’s golf­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for ev­ery­one.

With many visi­tors in the field, the three-per­son Am­brose event en­sured some wild shots and good fun, with the emer­gence of the even­tual win­ners, Tr­ish McNeill, Rod Wecker and Gavin Milne beat­ing Ja­son Bartz and Shelli and Rob Stan­ley on count­back, both with 56 net.

In the run­down were Scott Grigg, Ross Richards & Dean Barnard (571⁄ 6), Lance Lloyd, Matt Muller & Fin­bar O’Flynn (591⁄ 6), Ben Mo­ran, Peter Spiers & Sam Wat­son (601⁄ 3), Jake Nurse, Kaylem & Paul Douth­waite, and Si­mon & Troy Dob­bins and Michael Ka­vanagh (61), Kelvin Stephens, Peter Faust & Merv Hin­ton (61½), Matt Gold­man, Benn Ryan & Dean Kercher, and Nick Wat­son, Gav Noo­nan & Ben Pol­lard (622⁄ 3).

It was good to be back on Sun­day. Only the front nine was open but Peter McAlpine came in with a very good 47⁄ to 41 be the win­ner from Jim Evans af­ter a chip-off also with a 41 net. Neil Hansen was third with 48⁄42. Near­est the pins went to Jim Evans on num­ber two and Mick Bur­rows on nine. Ja­son Bourke won the snake putting and Mick Bur­rows the least num­ber of putts. Tom Fleming on a plus one hand­i­cap was the brad­mans win­ner. Play­ers will, hope­fully, be on the back nine this Sun­day, July 3, for the monthly mug comp.

WIN­NING: Win­ners of the XXXX Golf Day at the Proser­pine Golf Club.
