Per­fect con­di­tions for monthly medal

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: Twenty-eight Whit­sun­day play­ers com­peted in the Air­lie Panel and Paint July Monthly Medal on Sun­day.

De­spite a fairly cool start to the morn­ing, the weather even­tu­ally warmed into a per­fect Whit­sun­day win­ter’s day.

There was good scor­ing but a dearth of near­est-the-pin shots.

Two play­ers seemed to vie for the “dummy spit” of the day.

One player pounded the ground with his club while the other con­nected with a cart af­ter fling­ing his club.

Leanne Aber­nethy had a crack­ing 40m chip in on the 17th and Mark McDougall took out the long­est putt.

In men’s A-grade, Ron Jamieson played well, tak­ing out the win on net 69.

Ge­off Har­ri­son came in sec­ond on net 71.

The best gross score went to Ross Richards, while Lew Tuck had the long­est drive.

In men’s B-grade, Mark McDougall came in first on net 72 and Reg Kercher was close be­hind on a count­back.

Best gross score went to Kevin Mills and Mark Win­ter took out the long­est drive.

Robyn Mills played im­pres­sively, com­ing in first for the ladies on net 72.

Beryl Miller also played well and came in just be­hind on net 74.

Anna Win­ter­bourn took out the best gross score.

The long­est drive with a 139 hand­i­cap went to Ti­ina Rand­mae.

Tessa Aitken had a 40+ hand­i­cap.

Near­est to pins were all in but were in very short sup­ply on the day

Sec­ond shot on the ninth was Lew Tuck.

First shot on the 13th was Ti­ina Rand­mae.

In the men’s, sec­ond shot on the sec­ond was Ron Jamieson.

Lew Luck had first shot on the 16th.

Long­est putt on the sev­enth went to Mark McDougall.

The WFX En­cour­age­ment Award went to the lucky Vicky Tuck.

Ms Tuck had played her first com­pe­ti­tion game with the club.

Next week is the club stable­ford cham­pi­onship.

The golf course will be closed on Sun­day, July 17, for the PGC’s four­somes cham­pi­onships.

Due to pen­nants play, Sun­day, July 24, is an away day for WGC to Halliday Bay.
