JJ Walker is all class

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Taihape -

JJ Walker (43 points) was fir­ing on all cylin­ders giv­ing a su­perb golf­ing ex­hi­bi­tion as he raced home in 40 and 26 points on the back nine, in­clud­ing birdies on 10 and 18.

After an av­er­age front 9, Walker was all class.

Day­light sav­ing was sec­ond and Danny Mick­le­son 3rd on 40 points, as he dealt to his son in the semi­fi­nal, book­ing an ap­point­ment with Gary Thomas in three weeks. Mick­le­son birdied seven and nine, along with seven pars in a solid 81 off the stick.

A num­ber of play­ers recorded 39, in­clud­ing Duane Dick, Denise Mill­ner, Koke Cashell, Merv Tapp, James Fan­nin and John Fen­emor. Dick and Cashell both shot 74 off the stick. Cashell was con­sis­tent, with 15 pars, whereas Dick had one birdie and 13 pars.

Mill­ner played the par threes ex­tremely well.

Tapp had a lit­tle trou­ble on the 15th in an oth­er­wise rock-solid ex­hi­bi­tion. James Fan­nin booked a place in the ju­nior fi­nal, after dealing to the vice pres­i­dent John Gil­bert.

Fen­emor, like a num­ber of play­ers, fin­ished his round in su­perb style, record­ing 12 points over the last four holes, in­clud­ing pars on both par fives.

Nick McGuinn came in with 37, while James Mick­le­son recorded 36, Matt Thomas 35, Kevin O’Brien and Pe­dro Valen­tine 34.

The Glendin­ning Cup team of Ngarie Bond 38, Alan Thomas 38, Diane Mick­le­son 34 and Gary Thomas 33, came 5th, 14 points be­hind hosts Ran­gatira in a field of 17 teams.
