BLOB

Afternoon everyone,

We had a mixed bag of results on Saturday with our Interclub first round, but it is only Round 1 so onwards and upwards.

Club Captains please flick me an e-mail about how your team performed – just a small paragraph on your teams performance good or bad. – Thank you to the team captains that e-mailed in your results – you are AWESOME!!!

Division 2 won 11 – 4 at home against Paraparaumu, Division 3 lost 3 – 11.5 away at Kapiti, Division 6 lost 6 – 9 away at Judgeford – not bad guys for an away game, Division 9 lost 5.5 – 9.5 away at Karori, a good away result. Those winning their singles matches were Wayne Bach, Charlie Priestley, Brett Keno. Jayden Wellington and Andrew Black halved their single matches. The best performer was Wayne Bach who won both his single match and the 4-ball.

BOOM – Job Done – An Awesome effort from the Women’s MAT team playing at home against Royal Wellington 8 -4. Theresa Scholey had an awesome game picking up a dominant win 6/5, Kim rallying from three down after three holes to canter home 3/2. Carole holding on to a win 1up from a fast finishing opponent. Plus Birthday girl Chrissy carding a blazing 84 for a solid win. Ange effortlessly picking up another single win 4/3. With such good play the majority of 4 ball matches were locked up nice and early.

The Mid Week Ladies Pennants played Royal Wellington at Waikanae on Monday in terrible conditions, raining cold and wind, it was so windy golf bags were falling over, sadly they lost 6 ½ – 2 ½, with these terrible conditions their game took over 5 hours, when they came in for lunch at 4.00 it was nearly tea time. They were certainly very glad to get back to the warm Upper Hutt weather – Great effort Ladies!!!!
