Satur­day, Septem­ber 1 was a spring spe­cial – the Yel­low Ball com­pe­ti­tion, and many teams stuck to­gether for the third week in this tricky for­mat. Of course they all re­gret­ted it.

Com­ing to­gether for one week only were the day’s win­ners – the “team with no name” com­pris­ing John Stod­dart, Ge­off Caven, Ryan Stoner and Hugh Payne who have set a record with 94 points.

In sec­ond place were Mrs Brown’s Boys three shots back, pick­ing up the le­mons on the day, while the Un­sta­ble(fords) one shot be­hind won a bunch of bouncy yel­low crea­tures.

Shocker of the day went to last week’s golfer of the week, Man­well Haumu, whose first shot of the day lost the yel­low ball and con­signed his team to scorn and abuse.

In the scram­ble, Bert Dais­ley was on fire with 44 points win­ning the Robert Har­ris Golfer of the Week voucher and three balls.

Pra­neel Mani scored the same and only lost on count­back. Rex Ma­son is back to the glory days with 41 points while Man­well Haumu, Ge­off Caven, Roger Verry and Alex John­son all fin­ished with 40 points and three balls.

Mean­while, one point back were Jo Comer, John Stod­dart, Clarke Smith, Ge­off Hayes, Bill Wil­son and Mal­colm John­son, all pick­ing up two balls. Grab­bing one each were Mutu Pat­ter­son, Tony Hed­ley, Ian Tay­lor, Lyall Wil­son and Ryan Stoner.

At the other end of the ta­ble, Derek Lug­ton strug­gled round pick­ing up a mea­gre 25 points, but also picked up a ball for his troubles.

Twos on the day meant four balls each to Tony Hed­ley, Pra­neel Mani, Rex Ma­son and Mark White.

Pra­neel also claimed the Chal­lenge Card voucher for a birdie with a shot on the 7th, while the “LAW man” took out near­est the pin and Sen Sushi on 15.

There was more move­ment on the WEG MPT Shootout ta­ble with Pra­neel Mani ce­ment­ing his place at the top of the ta­ble; still a few weeks for ev­ery­one to make their move.

This Satur­day we have a 2-ball bet­ter ball com­pe­ti­tion which is a pairs best nett com­pe­ti­tion.

We’ll get into that from 8.30am and that could be the pre­am­ble for Sun­day’s trip away to Paeroa for this year’s Ma-Mo-Te-Pa.

We’ll need to be there from 9am-ish. If you have any ques­tions, please ring Alex. Hope to see you both days!
