Whitsunday golfers complete MM despite rain

Must read


WHO WOULD have imagined that, after a lovely dry course on Saturday, the heavens would unleash 25mm of rain overnight at PGC.

This meant that the whole course was very wet, obviously particularly the back 9, and made for a wide variety of scores. 

The number of competitors was disappointing but the weather discouraged many of the regular competitors and the intermittent showers didn’t lessen during the day.

However, it did make for some spectacularly bright rainbows to please the players and the April MM was completed. 

LADIES A GRADE: Winner Elise Hodgson with 74 nett; Runner-up Anna Winterbourn with 77; Longest Drive Anna Winterbourn.

LADIES B GRADE: Winner Joanne Moynihan; Longest Drive Joanne Moynihan. 

MEN’S A GRADE: Winner Andrew Albergo with 76 nett; Runner-up Wayne Temby with 77; Longest Drive Andrew Albergo.  

MEN’S B GRADE Winner Ron Jamieson with 76 nett; Runner-up Leigh Jones with 83; Longest Drive Paul Nicol.

NTPs for the ladies:Elise Hodgson, Joanne Moynihan and Anna Winterbourn.

NTPs for the men: Nobody got near the pins in the required number of strokes. 

LEAST PUTTS:Anna Winterbourn for the ladies with 33 putts, a draw for the men with Ron Jamieson and Wayne Temby both having 29 putts.

NAGAs:The honours went to Tiina Randmae and Paul Nicol, a drink courtesy of Aaron and Tracy Watts, proprietors of RADS Whitsunday who provide respite accommodation and disability support services. 

NEXT WEEK: It will be the May MM and least putts. Although this will mean three consecutive stroke competitions, it will bring WGC back in line with the PGC Sunday fixtures.
