Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in the South Waikato News Wednesday 5 December 2007.

Firestone Mini Tournament
The talk of the day was Brad Karl’s hole in one on the par 3 third hole, and then following on to shoot
his best ever round of 72 off the stick for 46 points, not bad for a young fellow!  And another young buck, Jahrome Brown actually had the best round of the day with a nett 61, Captain Ding was impressed, sorry “ex Captain Ding” was impressed!

Barbara Barr won the ladies division with a nett 71, runner up Fern Taylor.

Brad Karl of course won division 1 with nett 62, runner up Lance Hay 65, and in division 2 Jahrome Brown won with a nett 61, runner up Stew Kensington 67.

The stableford winners were Massey Rata 43, Walter Morgan and Butch Hamilton 40, John Barr, Scott Geen and Ross Jellard 39.  And in division 2, Warren Long and Mark Lawrence 44, Adam Sadler 42, Tony FitzHerbert 41, Peter Smith, Neville Dugan and Dieter Drescher 40.

Two’s were scored by Andrew Muller and Ding on the 3rd, Mike Karl on the 10th, Tony Muller on the 3rd and John Barr on the par 4 17th.

Bells Twilight
79 entries and a new sponsor could not stop this writer being somewhat belligerent about last week’s results.  After all the nice things that were written about DOA, they came out and bashed the Beavers.  In an ugly and tragic scene of brutality, this endangered species might actually be in danger of losing their money; they will just have to play better this week!

Muriel Savage won the ladies with 21 points, Fern Taylor and Amelia Morgan 19.

In the golfers division, Massey Rata 25 points, Allan McCarthy 24, John McPherson and Robbie Wi 22, Terry Garnett, Vance Carson, David Hoyte, Daley Rata-Makene, Neil Rist and Allan Wallace 21.

And in the non-golfers, Nick Foster and Dan Swan 24, Matt Rhodes 23, Daniel Van Dyk, Paul Beard, Dan Birks and Greg Burnett 22, Paul Strange, Gary McMillan and Steve Williams 21.

In the teams challenge, The 18” Wood Pruners were tied with The Layers and Side Show Bob on 63 points apiece, DOA 62, Tirau Earthmovers 1 61, and the Rum Brothers 60.

Coming up …
This Thursday has Bells Twilight, and on Saturday we have a scramble … Good luck and good golfing!
