Zones team wins bat­tle

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Taihape -

TAI­HAPE GOLF RE­PORT: The Zones Team de­feated the gritty Waiouru team 5-1 at Ran­gatira with the re­sult in bal­ance un­til the last hole.

Kerry Wells won the last hole to win both his match and the 4 ball with James Fan­nin.

1 up Fan­nin lost his match on the 16th.

In the other par­ing Dave Pol­lard was com­fort­able with a 4/3 win. Nick McGuinn won on the 16th as did the McGuinn/Pol­lard 4 ball.

The team now meet the strong Apiti team in the quar­ter fi­nal.

Back home the se­cond round of the Club Champs was held in try­ing un­der­foot con­di­tions.

With con­sid­er­able storm dam­age and nu­mer­ous branches down plac­ing through the green was in­stalled as well as line of sight for all storm dam­age.

Lead­ing the field in was John Fen­emor with a solid 67 net de­spite the ball not mov­ing on ev­ery shot.

As a con­se­quence, John­nie Walker came into play in the 19th.

Fen­emor played the par 3s ex­tremely well.

Play­ing part­ner Matt Thomas was in su­perb touch with a sub-par round of 70 and 68 net. Thomas birdied 2, 4 and 14. Koke Cashell was all class in his 75 off the stick for a net 69.

Cashell birdied 1 and 6 and but for a few is­sues on 2 and 3 was in sublime form.

John Gil­bert reg­is­tered 71 play­ing the par 3s well al­though he had a few is­sues on the last few holes.

Duane Dick and Peter Valen­tine came in with 73 net. Valen­tines round ben­e­fited from nu­mer­ous 15 foot putts in a pre­ci­sion ma­chine like per­for­mance.

Dick chipped in for a birdie on the 3rd but couldn’t over­come the speed of the greens in a con­ser­va­tive dis­play.

On 75 was Ken Cribb, JJ Walker and Bri­any Bris­tol.

Merv Tapp joined John Fen­emor be­com­ing fa­mil­iar with John­nie Walker.

Twos K. Cashell, M. Thomas, A. Thomas

Due to the re­cent storm, the 3rd qual­i­fy­ing round of the Club Champs will be held this Sun­day.

As soon as the course dries out en­abling ve­hi­cles to safely ma­neu­ver around the course work­ing bees will be or­gan­ised to clean up the re­cent dam­age.

Any­one in­ter­ested or avail­able should con­tact Danny Mick­le­son for more in­for­ma­tion.
