Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in the South Waikato News Wednesday 28 November 2007.

Bells Twilight
68 players turned up to witness the undeniable, Sean Samkin is a demigod firing a 37 off the stick for 25 points and yet another Captain Ding scalp, 3-1 up now; and DOA are a fine, honest and upstanding bunch of players who were unjustly served up their just desserts a week too early.

Fern Taylor took out the ladies with 20 points, while Sean Samkin took out the golfers section with 25, David O’Brien 24, Stan Wilson 23, Daley Rata-Makene, Phil Kensington and Henry Van Dyk 22, Kyle Savage and Captain Ding 21, Spill Hill, Brian Curd, Spotty McCarthy, John McPherson and Massey Rata 20.

In the non golfers, first was David Bidois with a whopping 28, Ian Nelson 27, Rob Rogers and Joe Davies 26, Bill Hedley and Daniel Van Dyk 25, Smiley Alexander and Phil Harris 24, Keri Kohinga and Dan Birks 21.

In the business house, the mighty Beavers went trimming with 18” Wood Pruners to build a dam and shore up 1st and 2nd on 63 points apiece; it was Undecided who was trailing with 62, while Tirau Earthmovers 1 on 61 built a road for the Side Show Bob’s circus on 59, who were ahead of Team Yugio on 58.

It is not a misprint that DOA is not mentioned.

Saturday Scramble
In a smaller than usual field, Ross Jellard won on count back from Eric Hill with 43 points, Hooky Howard and John Mulholland 42, Allan McCarthy 41 and Mark Lawrence 39.
