Morning Everyone,

Well it was pretty wet up here this morning, but now the sun is out and no rain!!

Awesome news about New Zealand golfer Danny Lee in the weekend, he scored a decent payday on the PGA Tour. After coming seventh at the Players Championship he jumped from 148th to 119th in the points standings – Great to be a New Zealander!!! And !!of course Tiger Woods didn’t do too bad coming 11th. Webb Simpson ended up winning by 4 shots.

We can’t forget our Lydia Ko having a deserving win at the Mediheal Championship last week, I must admit I loved watching her play and you really knew how much she wanted it after seeing her reaction when she finally won, at the end of the day she is only 21 and has won 15 LPGA tour events, this one has taken nearly two years to win but she is still the most successful teenager in the history of the game to achieve so much.

Interclub Results:

Division 4 played a Te Marua on Saturday against Boulcott and WON 10.5 – 4.5. Player of the day went to Noel Kahui with a 4&3 win and shot 76. Paul Henley won the Blue award. Division 4 is in 2nd place 3 points behind Kapiti who are playing away, Division 4 are playing at home so lots at stake in the final round – Exciting!!!

Division 7 played at home also against Carterton and WON 9 ½ – 5 1/2 , Chris Brooks, Robert McIntyre, Wayne Bach, Jose Cooper and Allan Old had great games, the team is 10 points ahead in first place at the moment, so like division 4 the last game is the decider, they have to win by 7 -8 points to take out the Championship.

Division 9 lost against Kapiti.

Our Mashies team played Trentham at Trentham and lost 12 – 3.

And yes!! we do have a Division 1 team – but haven’t really heard how they are doing.
