The Dawson Insurance Golfer of the Year title has been finalised with Colin Helsby clinging onto his lead to take the substantial $400 prize by a mere 45 points.
Colin’s lead looked shaky after he failed by one stroke to qualify for the shootout final. This opened the door for Glenn Sullivan to pip Colin if he made it past the 11th hole of the shootout.
Unfortunately, Glenn tumbled out of the shootout on the 7th hole and with no other challengers near enough in the shootout field, this gave the title to Colin.
The event was a great success and a huge thank you to Dawson Insurance
once again for their support. After a review of the format, there may be
some tweaking for next year.
See you all in the New Year for the Joe Kingi Memorial, which kicks off
DARREN MEETS STU & JILL
Two of our members, Jill and Stu Carney, recently toured Ireland, played a couple of courses and drooled over others, including Royal County Down and Portrush, in the North. They are sharing
their photos of the former (see below), but the light at Portrush precluded any being taken of the latter. However, whilst in the Pro Shop, they chanced upon that club's most famous son, Darren
Clarke and had an unforgettable chat with him. But no photo!!!!!!
