Willo and Junior take doubles title

By Ron Hottes

At Warburton Golf Club’s Wednesday 22 August event, Paul Kennedy was the clear winner with a meritorious +3.

Good shooting PK. Andy McMath was runner-up on square. Balls got to -1.

The daily nearest the pin winners were Mario DeVincentis on the ninth, Kempton-Senior on the 15th and to Ossie-McClay on the 17th.

On Saturday August 25 was Canadian 4somes.

Under sunny skies and on a much more player-friendly course, Peter Fox and Sam Dennis won the day with a very impressive 67.250 (Nett).

Scoring 68.125, Sean Kennedy and Happy Gilmore snared the runner-up prize.

The ball rundown was not available to this scribe, unfortunately!

Nearest the pin winners were Andy-Lockey on the third, Happy on the fifth, PK on the ninth, Peter Fox on the 12th and Geoff Fall on the 15th.

The doubles title, called the Singer/Walker trophy, is the most sought-after paired prize at the club. This year’s winners were Andrew Williams and Ian Kempton.

Willo is a multiple title-holder, but Kempton Junior is a first-time winner, and on the plus side put him one win ahead of his old man.

In a tightly-contested final, over 18 fascinating holes, Willo and Junior defeated Jason ‘Kenno’ Kennedy and Paul ‘Mr-Wandin’ Long.

My mail tells me that the winners combined brilliantly together, but that Mr Long kept his team in the hunt with some long-range putts.

Well done to all four members – just making the final is a praiseworthy achievement.
