Flaw­less round

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Taihape -

TAI­HAPE GOLF: Duane Dick pro­duced a flaw­less per­for­mance with a bo­gey free round of 67 off the stick. Dick birdied 2, 13, 14 and 18 along with 14 pars for 46 points in a typ­i­cal work­man-like ex­hi­bi­tion.

Play­ing part­ner Matt Thomas also matched Dick on the front 9 scor­ing 35 in­clud­ing birdies on 2 and 3. When Thomas birdied 10 and 11 to go 3 un­der all thoughts were on Thomas but his round fal­tered in the later stages as Dick pow­ered on.

How­ever, it was John Booth who scored a re­spectable 40 points who stole the lime­light for all the wrong rea­sons.

Boat build­ing ex­pert, Booth ex­per­i­mented with the con­struc­tion of float­ing au­to­matic trundlers. On the 12th green his au­to­matic trundler headed to the Hau­tapu River for its maiden voy­age un­der its own steam.

Un­for­tu­nately, the test run was un­suc­cess­ful with Booth now hav­ing to progress his pro­to­type over the fes­tive sea­son. De­spite res­cu­ing his trundler and clubs Booth re­turned to the scene at the con­clu­sion of his round, in waste­high wa­ter, to redeem his wedge which had also been dis­lodged from his bag in the ini­tial in­ci­dent.

Back to the golf, Richard Mill­ner recorded 37 points in a good even round. Kerry Wells came in on 36, Koke Cashell and Matt Thomas 35. Two’s: Duane Dick and Gary Thomas both on the 14th .
