GOLF

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.
