Tuck and Cameron get memo­rial win

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: Thirty in­trepid Whit­sun­day Golfers braved the thick early morn­ing fog last Sun­day to play the Mark Ni­col Memo­rial Tro­phy, a 2 ball Am­brose which was Mark’s favourite for­mat of the game.

While the front nine was still in re­cov­ery mode and a lit­tle heavy, scor­ing was tight but NTPs were again, very thin on the ground.

The win­ners on the day were Lew Tuck and Don Cameron on 65.5. They were fol­lowed by run­ners-up Chris Bai­ley and Ben Mo­ran on 66.5.

The run­down in­cluded An­nie and Dean Kercher on 68.25, Penny Wardroper and Rod Wecker, Pauline Red­path and Danny York, and Tessa Aitken and Ritchie Atkins.

The long­est drives in Men’s A went to Lew Tuck and in Men’s B it was Paul Ni­col. For the ladies (1-39 h’cap) it was Penny Wardroper and (40+ h’cap) Linda Wardroper.

Near­est the pins were: 2nd shot on the 9th to Chris Bai­ley and Ben Mo­ran and 2nd shot on the 2nd to Don Cameron and Lew Tuck.

Next week will be the Air­lie Panel and Pain/Mas­ter Butch­ers Whit­sun­day Monthly Medal and least putts.
