On what has probably been the coldest morning this year a field of 55 players teed off in today's Par event. Results on the day were as follows.
1st: Chris Wratten on +1 on count back.
2nd: Herb Muriwai also on +1.
3rd: Lyn Benger on square after a six way count back.
Ball or Chocolate:
Teri Swanbury, Des Jackson, David Williams, Terry Lunn and Allen Gannon all on square, Ross Macalpine, Mike Birks, Kaye Lunt and Gail Rogers on -1, followed by Noel Downie and Richard Kelly on -2 following a nine way count back.
For the first time in recent record there were three winners of the infamous Bradman award, with no count back possible because of the scores. The players were Neil Grimley together with husband and wife pairing of Anna and Graham Heuston, the latter pairing resuming golf after several months away.
Nearest the pins:
4th: Bruce Martin.
6th: Des Jackson.
Ladies 7th: Kay McLeod.
Men's 7th: Ross Macalpine.
Chris Wratten was the winner with a long, straight drive alongside the string line.
