Sta­ble­ford of May 19

Waihi Leader - - News - By TREVOR COOMBES

I have been pon­der­ing my navel re­cently won­der­ing why the morn­ing fel­las con­sis­tently out per­form the af­ter­noon ban­dits so we de­cided to dis­patch a spe­cial ops team to go in and find out why. The only con­clu­sion was that the morn­ing guys have youth on their side and the af­ter­noon men are just in­ad­e­quate. It has reached the point where I was con­sid­er­ing an early start but was re­jected by the Chair­man of the club due to age. I will reap­ply when I am younger.

Good scores of 42 were at­tained by three morn­ing mem­bers in a nail biter of a fin­ish ; Bob Baun­ton, Allen Sarant and Richard Taitoko.

The af­ter­noon was played in a soft rain re­mind­ing me of sum­mer in the UK. To be fair the scores re­flected the fact that most of the mem­bers were pre­oc­cu­pied by the wed­ding and what to wear. Graeme Parkin­son 40, Chris Pilmer and Chris Hale 37.

Two of the play­ers who shall re­main name­less played as part­ners and demon­strated the va­garies¯¯ of golf. Wayne played a gameOO of two halves go­ing from the sub­lime to the ridicu­lous and Trevor go­ing from the ridicu­lous to the more ridicu­lous.

One mem­ber con­sid­ered giv­ing up golf but was per­suaded to carry on at the be­hest of his wife to keep him out of house on Satur­day. Well done Nelly.

It is meat­pack day on Thurs­day and I look for­ward to see­ing you on the course.
