York wins by two from Atkins
York also takes Guzzlers’ Cup
GOLF: It was a cool start to a stunningly beautiful day on Proserpine golf course last Sunday when the Whitsunday Golf Club played their September Monthly Medal sponsored by Airlie Panel and Paint and Master Butchers Whitsunday.
A dry course made for lots of run on the fairway and resulted in some excellent low scoring for the winners, particularly Mick Caton and Karen Rix. Greens proved tricky for many but Mark McDougall’s putting was on song on the day. Anna Winterbourn again showed her consistency with the ladies’ best gross. Danny York is the lucky recipient of the Guzzlers’ Cup until the next Monthly Medal.
