Dormer makes pro­vin­cial side

The Northland Age - - Sport -

Brett Dormer is the sole Far North player in the North­land Mas­ters team which con­tests the Frey­berg Mas­ters in­ter­provin­cial ti­tle at Taupo¯ next week.

The team named ear­lier this month is No.1 Saali Herewini (Sher­wood Park GC), No.2 Brett Dormer (Ahipara), No.3 Peter Bone (North­land GC), No.4 Nathan Ja­cobi (Waipu GC) and No.5 Scott Wil­son (Waipu GC). The team man­ager, Grant Camp­bell, hails from Wai­tangi.

The pres­ti­gious Golf New Zealand tour­na­ment will be con­tested from Mon­day to Fri­day, Novem­ber 12-16, by teams rep­re­sent­ing prov­inces through­out the coun­try.

Golf North­land’s Vaughan Wit­ten said the Frey­berg Mas­ters was one of the big­gest tour­na­ments of the year on the na­tional mas­ters cal­en­dar, noted North­land won the event in Wai­tangi ear­lier this decade, and felt this year’s line up had the po­ten­tial to do very well this time round.

The play­ers were se­lected from their per­for­mances at var­i­ous events around the area which dou­bled as an “ex­ten­sive tri­alling” process, Wit­ten said.

“And they’ve prac­tised their guts out [in re­cent weeks] I’m sure,” he said.

North­land travel to Taupo¯ this Sun­day and will play Canterbury on Mon­day, Otago and Ao­rangi on Tues­day, Tas­man on Wed­nes­day, hold­ers Auck­land and Taranaki on Thurs­day, and Hawke’s Bay and North Har­bour on day five, Fri­day.
