Club Captains Report

Saturday turned on yet another great day at Manukorihi. Captain’s V Secretary’s and an earlier start catching me out, but thanks to our President David who had sorted out a format. Thanks Dave, but unfortunately it must have affected your golf as I managed to take a beer off you.

The honours for the day went to the Captain’s with an average score of 68.38 with a dismal 70.26 from the Secretary’s (obviously missing Marie’s input).

The Wills Trophy winners were Trevor Hughes and Sue Nobbs to whom I must apologize for not announcing this at prize giving on Saturday. I will find the Trophy and polish it up for this weekend’s presentation.

A huge congratulations to Bruce Taylor for his first strike of the day of his brand new TP5 ball as he watched it bounce a couple of times and drop into the hole. Well done Bruce.

Twos went to Shane Weir, Pooch, Rod Andrews, Fay Rowe, ad Ted Danych.

Great support for the raffles saw 12 prizes go out.

On Friday we have a 9 hole open Tournament and a Police tourney in the afternoon.

Saturday is Round 2 of the Bleakley Tray.

Our congratulations to Kingston Taylor-Voyle for a fantastic win in New Plymouth Golf Club’s Senior division 2, which took in handicaps 6 to 12 I believe. That boy just keeps on achieving.

Handicap Pennants - played at Kaitake. A great day for the Number 1 team with a 8.5 to .5 win, well done boys keep it up. It must be said that I haven't heard anyone call JR the rock of the team very often, but 3 from 3, who can argue the point. Keep up the good form JR, you must have finally found the right combo of clubs in the bag and now Maree can sell the other 389 clubs and 47 chippers. The number 2 team snuck in with a draw 4.5 each and could have snatched it with some games going oh so close. Well done boys. New Plymouth round this week and Team 1 has Te Ngutu 3 and Team 2 has Kaitake 2, good luck lads.
