Committee Cup Report – New Zealand Golf Club March 6th 2018

The fourth playing of the Committee Cup took place in pretty good conditions given the recent weather – just one short shower in an otherwise dry and relatively mild day. In the circumstances, the wonderful New Zealand golf course was in good nick - some snow remained in a few bunkers and reminded us of how lucky we were.

There were 30 players in all but, to balance up the teams, some were made honorary members of the Committee team.

All matches (four ball better ball) were played out for the full 18 holes, with an overall tie to be resolved by the number of holes won.

The winners were: -

Players Result
Douglas Drummond & Trevor Teer Members+6
Stan Chicksand & Eddie Clark Committee+1
Christopher Gray & Gerry Lynch Committee +1
Oliver Harris & John Smith (C)
David French & Robert Maxwell (M) Halved
Sean Friedman & Paul Hancock Members +4
Ray Fisher & Martin Howes Committee +10
Nick Haigh & Frank Whiffen Committee +9
Terry Wills Committee +8

The overall result was 5 ½ - 2 ½ in favour of the Committee and the series now stands at 2 – 2 with the Committee having won for the last two years.

Lunch was superb and, after a few words from our President, Paul Williams, Mike Warnes (Committee Captain) was presented with the magnificent Leon Friedman Memorial Trophy by our guest of honour, Mrs Bernice Friedman,

The President gave us (his fellow athletes) some more of his very helpful tips on playing golf which included a combination of mental serenity and physical violence!
