Golfers swing through balmy week­end of ac­tion

The Western Star - - SPORT -

GOLF: Whether it was a ca­sual hit out or a se­ri­ous shot at a tro­phy, golfers from through­out the re­gion gath­ered in Roma on the week­end for an­other round of fair­way fun.

Satur­day’s sin­gle sta­ble­ford event had tro­phies pro­vided by Justin Rudd. Outscor­ing his clos­est ri­vals was Len White who nailed 42 sta­ble­ford points.

This per­for­mance was good enough to edge Lach­lan Young who mus­tered 41 points along with Wayne Plate

Fourth and fifth was deter­mined by count­back with both play­ers on 40 points and Justin Rudd did enough to outscore his play­ing part­ner Dar­ren Thrupp.

A balmy Sun­day was the set­ting for a com­pet­i­tive sin­gle stroke event, with tro­phies sup­plied by Patrick Mawn and the Roma Golf Club. Fin­ish­ing on top of his com­peti­tors and show­ing calm­ness un­der pres­sure was Mark Slater, who won the day with 65 nett, ahead of Rod Slater with 66 nett, Nathan Moody with 67 and Wayne John­son with 68.

Golfers who may have shot be­low their best will have the chance to do it all again this week­end with a sin­gle sta­ble­ford event on Satur­day and Sun­day with tro­phies pro­vided by Michael Justins and good friend of the club, Alan Her­bert­son. For those at Mitchell, the club will host the highly an­tic­i­pated Mitchell car­ni­val on Sun­day with a start­ing time of about 10am. A Roma club meet­ing will start at 5.30pm to­day where the up­com­ing Roma car­ni­val will be dis­cussed and all com­mit­tee mem­bers are en­cour­aged to at­tend.
