Golfers make most of prime con­di­tions

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: The fog lifted, drifted in again, then cleared for a won­der­fully warm, sunny and wind­less day for 34 Whit­sun­day golfers on Sun­day.

The Air­lie Panel & Paint and Master Butch­ers Whit­sun­day July Monthly Medal (and least putts) was at stake and the large field made for some close scor­ing in a tough com­pe­ti­tion.

The course keeps get­ting bet­ter and bet­ter and this is re­flected in some ex­cel­lent scores on the day.

NTPs were in short sup­ply again, these will im­prove as every­one gets back to form.

Rod Wecker won A-grade with a nett 69 while Danny York was run­ner-up and made the long­est drive.

Dean Kercher picked up the best gross score.

Rees May had an ex­cel­lent day with a nett 62 and a long­est drive to win B-grade, very closely fol­lowed by Wilf Her­weg on a nett 63. Mick Ca­ton claimed the best gross score while the long­est drive went to Rees May.

Tessa Aitken won the Ladies comp with a nett 71, with Robyn Mills right be­hind with a nett 72.

Best gross score went to Anna Win­ter­bourn.

The long­est drives went to (1-39 h’cap) Ti­ina Rand­mae and (40+ h’cap) An­nie Kercher.

The $50 meat tray voucher was won by Mick Ca­ton and Tessa Aitken has the Guz­zler’s Cup un­til the next MM.

Next week Whit­sun­day Golf Club has a bye, with many set to play in the PGC mixed four­somes cham­pi­onship.
