Putaruru Golf Club Report for Insertion in the South Waikato News Wednesday 19 December 2007.

Men's Report
The year winds down, as the psychosis that is Christmas churns around us, testing our very mental fibre and sanity.

Speaking of golf, the scoring is ball bustingly brilliant, unless you have 41 points and win nothing.

Nevertheless, there that singular satisfaction of removing cash from struggling vets who end up in a hospital Ward with no money left for Teddies for the grand kids.  However, one should Nev a paint, so to speak, over the issues, when you’ve Dug an issue that's too big for Little Ted’s.

Saturday’s scramble results saw Brad Karl with 42 points, Hooky Howard and John Bryant 40, and Daley Rata-Makene 38.

In division 2 Eric Hill won with 45, Pip Pakaru 44, David Motutere and Graeme Ormsby 43.

Two’s were scored by the Karl’s, Mike and Brad on the 3rd.

This is ex Captain Dings last utterance for the year, so on behalf of the Putaruru Golf Club, please accept our compliments of the season, and may all your drives be straight, all your putts be on line, unless you are playing the ex captain over the break, then may your pockets be full, you arms long for all the shouting you’ll be doing over the Yule Tide season ... Merry Christmas!

Bells Twilight
