Golf hand­i­caps tum­ble af­ter out­stand­ing scores

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GOLF: Whitsunday Golfers played a sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day with some out­stand­ing scores achieved by sev­eral who played well out­side their hand­i­caps.

Wilf Her­weg, Pam Kercher and Linda Wardroper ex­celled and will be play­ing with suit­ably ad­justed hand­i­caps in the next WGC com­pe­ti­tion, the Stable­ford cham­pi­onships on Septem­ber 24. While low in num­bers, all the A-Grade play­ers man­aged to score a win of some sort. NTPs were in short sup­ply again with fast greens mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to stay on once reached. WGC wel­comed two guest play­ers trav­el­ling around Aus­tralia, Lou and Sonja, with Sonja tak­ing an NTP on the 16th.
