Golfers make most of prime conditions
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.
WINNERS: Tessa Aitken (Ladies’ winner), Robyn Mills (Ladies’ runner-up), Danny York (A-grade runner-up) and Wilf Herweg (B-grade runner-up).
