Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in the South Waikato News Wednesday 10 May 2006.

Men's Report
Putaruru continues it’s ruthless quest of defending the Prebble cup with a gripping win over Mangakino on Sunday at Matamata.  By the narrowest of margins, a solitary match is what it came down to winning 6.5 to 5.5.  The semi final will played this Sunday at Waikare and our opposition is Whangamata … go the boyz!

Thrashed within inches of their dignity is the only way to describe the humiliation King Shanly and Tom Houston suffered at the hands of Terry Garnett and Eric Hill in their 8/6 loss on Saturday.  Paul Graham and Brian Curd handed out a less dramatic drubbing winning 5/4, while Greg Worth and Dieter Drescher, and Mark Lawrence and Garry Campbell make the semis in the main draw of the TTT Trophy.

The TTT flight had only one default which is a patent improvement on last year.  Mike Karl and Neville Dugan handed out the only lesson trouncing Anthony Berben and John Craig 5/4.

The Firestone mini Tournament had 63 in the field.  Cheryl Jones won the Ladies nett with 73, 2nd Audrey Mathis 76; gross winner Mel Edwards from Otumoetai, stableford winner Alison Riley 35, 2nd Kathryn Clarke from Stewart Alexander 29.

Ross Jellard won division 1 with 67 nett, 2nd Hooky Howard 71; gross winner Terry Garnett 81, and stableford winner Mike Karl 40, Barry Wallace, Richard Wharehoka, John Wood and Lance Douglas all 37.  Nett winner in division 2 was Eric Hill 67, 2nd Sean Samkin 69; gross winner Dieter Drescher 89, stableford winner Brian Curd 41, Gary Urbahn 39 and Neville Dugan 37.  Not a solitary two was scored … choppers!

Finally the 2006 stroke play winners are; senior Mike Karl 131 gross for 2 rounds (13 under), intermediate Ross Jellard on count back from Terry Garnett 162 and Junior Roger Clothier 179.

Fine weather brought out an excellent field for the Ladies LGU, Monthly Medal and Putting Button competitions.  Heather Howard won the monthly medal, Irene McIvor won the 0-30 putting and Maureen Shanly won the 31-54 putting.  Results for the day, Silver; Denise Hunt 72 nett on a c/b from Alison Riley 72 and Irene McIvor 76.  Bronze I; Heather Howard 69, Jenny Smith 77 on a c/b from Rachel Young.  Bronze 2; D Mills 73, Vere Hamilton 77 also on c/b from Anne Kensington.  Irene McIvor had the only two’s and she did it in style on the 3rd and the 10th.

The Ladies nine hole division is increasing in players each week.  This week’s putting button was won by Gillian Robbins with 15 putts followed by E Howland on a c/b from J McDonnell 17 and Lynette Bennett 18.

The Nine Hole pennant team played Ngaruawahia at the Cambridge course on Friday.  Gillian Robbins was the best of our players with a 7-2 win, which helped the team to their second position on the day, with only two rounds left to play the team is lying third over all.  Well Done Ladies!

Next week the Ladies will play Patrons Trophy 2, and the nine holers will play stableford.  Monday 15th is the second round of the weekday pennants.  Don’t forget the Fire Brigade Tournament on the 21st.

Once again the Vets had a good turnout for their Thursday Scramble, with a field of 29.  John Wood won with 41, Ross Jellard 39 and Don Riley 38.  The Women’s division was won by Alison Riley with 40, Florence Jellard 33 and Heather Howard.

Coming up …
Thursday is Vets day and on Saturday we have the TTT semi finals and $5 scramble … Good luck and good golfing!
