Scep­tics well-tested

South Waikato News - - SPORT - By JON WELCH

I know it’s a scary thing to ad­mit, but I’m start­ing to think that weather fore­casts are more of­ten cor­rect than in­cor­rect.

A small group of golfers de­cided to test this the­ory on Satur­day at the July New World Tour­na­ment, when morn­ing light show­ers turn­ing to heavy per­sis­tent rain in the af­ter­noon were promised. The fore­cast was cor­rect.

Lionel Grylls, won the net with 69, with Gavin Cortesi col­lect­ing the gross when he scored 73.

All other prizes were on stable­ford as fol­lows: Jim Cortesi 38, Mal­colm Buck­ley 35, Tony Fuimaono 33, Alec Steven­son 32, and Brown Cortesi and Mike Fid­dis both with 31.

Fid­dis claimed the eclec­tic com­pe­ti­tion on the last day when he man­aged to col­lect an­other two points to to­tal 60, over Ge­orge Manu 59, and Grylls and Jon Welch with 58.

Satur­day’s com­pe­ti­tion, is the Dyer Cup, a 4BBB event.

See you there.
