Men Saturday November 3 was the Williams Jewellery Golfer of the year competition and a full field of players at the top of their game rolled up to compete for glory and a very smart Pierre Cardin watch. With the weather no problem, it needed something special to win the day and Ryan Yates was able to oblige with a stunning 76 off the stick. Not bad for a 14 handicap, bringing him home on a net 62, one shot clear of John Trower and Kevin Laird, both playing great golf. Meanwhile the trio of Kerry Millar, Brent Stewart and John Isted all carded 66s, one ahead of the trio of Tony Hedley, Bruce Hancock and Ian Taylor. The last of the 3-ball winners was John Gillespie on 67.
Next up was Matthew Te Patu joining Junior Rawiri and Alex Johnson on 70s for 2 balls, and again for the group all on level par: Dave Wright, Tony Gillies, Gary Foy, Dennis Walsh and Ken Clarke. Finally there was a ball each for Bing Lamb, Murray Eddington, Jack Trower, Rex Mason, Kurt Edmonds and Geoff Hayes on 72. Connor Stoner is always keen to get a ball and this week was no different, except he picked it up as whacker of the week with a shocking 92 net. The Sen Sushi voucher was snapped up by Billy Wilson.
