Walker still on the run

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Taihape -

The golf course had dried out con­sid­er­ably and com­bined with mown fair­ways, con­di­tions were ideal, al­though a cool breeze en­sured jer­seys were a must.

JJ Walker was a late ar­rival, but was con­sis­tent, with a su­perb fin­ish, scor­ing 15 points on his last 5 holes. Al­though he had a lit­tle trou­ble on the 1st and 18th, his 40 points was too good. Sev­eral 4-point­ers on 7 and 15 aided his cause.

Koke Cashell gave an­other con­sis­tent per­for­mance, shoot­ing 76 and fly­ing home in 36, which in­cluded birdies on 10 and 18. Cashell’s 37 points kept him ahead of Dave Pol­lard and Duane Dick on 36. Pol­lard birdied the 4th, play­ing the short holes level with the card. Duane Dick also birdied 10 and 18, along with 9 pars in a solid per­for­mance, al­though he did spray it around on the 11th .

De­nis Robert­son rel­ished the firmer go­ing and ex­tra run, scor­ing 34 points. James Fan­nin pro­gressed to the next round of the Joblin and now meets Bri­any Bris­tol. With a lit­tle more care with the flat stick, Bar­rie Ran­dall would have been talked about for the right rea­sons, but he did man­age five 3-point­ers in a solid front nine.

Play­ers with out­stand­ing matches should con­tact their op­po­nent dur­ing the week con­firm­ing their en­counter.
