GOLF

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Jan­uary 29 was the first round of the sum­mer cup and the weather bomb that had rushed through ear­lier meant some amaz­ing new wa­ter fea­tures needed ne­go­ti­at­ing on what was oth­er­wise a fine day for golf. Lead­ing the charge and pick­ing up the Robert Har­ris voucher for golfer of the week plus 4 balls was Paul Wood with a 67 off the stick, net 66. Three balls each for the net 67s of Alex John­son and Jim Barr, whilst Bruce Han­cock’s 69 earned him two balls. Lyall Wil­son and Jack Trower showed they can still pro­duce a solid 70 pick­ing up a ball each and Mur­ray Ed­ding­ton was the only hon­est golfer on the day card­ing a net 71 and claim­ing a ball. A ball each for the twos from Paul Wood (on the par four 8th), Alex John­son and Mal­colm John­son.

The first Chal­lenge Card Voucher for the year went to Jim Barr for an ex­cep­tional birdie on the newly wa­ter-fea­tured 13th hole, while Mur­ray Ed­ding­ton picked up the Sen Sushi voucher fin­ish­ing clos­est for two on the 18th. The fi­nal ball of the day went to John Trower who sensed his chance to claim whacker of the week and grabbed it with both hands.

This Satur­day is the Wai­tangi week­end scram­ble from 8.30am. Mem­bers look for­ward to a fun stable­ford day of good golf. draw; this meant that the di­vi­sion ran in a round robin or­der. The club won all three of its games over Satur­day and Sun­day. The Pu­taruru-Ti­rau B and C grade teams won both their fi­nals con­vinc­ingly.

The week­end ran very smoothly due to ef­fi­ciency of the teams and the or­gan­i­sa­tion of all the helpers, score­keep­ers and um­pires.

Pu­taruru-Ti­rau will host the spon­sors car­ni­val at Toko­roa Me­mo­rial Sport­grounds on March 12-13 this year. This is a very im­por­tant car­ni­val for the polocrosse sea­son.

So if you didn’t have the chance to get down and see what polocrosse is all about this will be a great op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity.
