Golfers in win­ning form

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Pu­taruru Golf Club is pro­duc­ing top notch play­ers with Joe McGee blitz­ing the field with 45 sta­ble­ford points, Denise Hunt plac­ing first in the Uden Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tions and Don and Al­li­son Ri­ley win­ning the Lion Tro­phy mixed four­somes.

Dur­ing Satur­day’s play be­hind McGee’s 45pts in sec­ond place were both Tony Edgar and Ke­van Ste­wart on 42pts. Fourth equal were Dean Robin­son and Steven Gar­land and 6th equal were War­wick White, John Mul­hol­land and Cushla Arbuckle 38.

Tues­day’s LGU win­ning net scores were Sil­ver: Denise Hunt 70, Bronze 1 Ali­son Ri­ley 73, Bronze 2 Marie Way 86. 9 Hole Lady golfers played the first round of their sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion – 1st Helen Putt 17, 2nd Gil­lian Rob­bins 16, 3rd Helen Haigh 12.

On Satur­day the club’s an­nual mid win­ter Christ­mas tour­na­ment will be played.

The semi­fi­nal matches of the Pres­i­dents tro­phy fea­tured: John Barr and Ted Ward vs An­drew and Adam Sadler. Barr/ Ward saw their matches go onto ex­tra holes (on one oc­ca­sion to the 21st) but were un­able to con­tinue their win­ning form, af­ter be­ing 5 down af­ter 9 win­ning the 10th to close the gap to 4, young Sad­dler’s re­cov­ery par 4 on the 11th saw the lead back to 5, 12 was halved, Sadlers’ won 13. Not sur­ren­der­ing though Barr/Ward won 14, but loss 15 and the match.

This puts An­drew and Adam Sadler in the fi­nal this Fri­day vs Matthew Rhodes and Steven Thorby who in a very close match won through over Peter Hills and Tali Muli­fia.

On the line: Strath­more School’s Rippa rugby team­plays to­day.
