Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in the South Waikato News Wednesday 12 September 2006.

Men's Report
The weakest link was found at the same time that the winners were decided in the final of the Presidents played on Saturday between John Barr and Ted Ward who played Phillip and Stewart Kensington.

3 of the players scored 39 points, while one had a trifling 36, which meant John Barr and Ted Ward were crowned victors with a 2-1 win.  Is it fair to say that Stewart could only carry his partner so far?

66 played in the Firestone Open which also doubled as the final round of qualifying for the men's champs.

Fern Taylor won the ladies nett with 68, and Alison Riley the stableford with 39.

In men's division 1 Tali Mulafia won the nett with 68, runner up Mike Karl on count back.  Ron Taylor won the stableford with 40, runner up John Mulholland 39 on count back.

In division 2 Hooky Howard won the nett with 68, Ted Ward 69.  And the stableford winner was Brett Makene, runner up Dieter Drescher 39 on count back.

Two’s were scored by Hooky Howar5d and Mike Karl on the 3rd.
