Poverty Bay

GOLF-loving teachers are making the most of their last days of summer holidays.

Central School principal Andy Hayward celebrated a career-first hole-in-one on Sunday while fellow teacher Stefan Andreassen made his 10th round of golf for 2020 one he won't forget.

Hayward aced the 112-metre par-3 sixth hole with a pitching wedge. More on his feat in tomorrow's Herald.

Andreassen produced a personal-best 3-under-par 69 — adding his name to a growing list of players who have broken par at the Bay this year.

Andreassen started on the 10th tee and after opening with two pars went birdie, birdie, birdie from 12 to 14, then added another on the 18th for an outward nine holes of 4-under 32.

Seven straight pars were followed by his only bogey and a par to finish.

His 69-6-63, for 45 points, deservedly won the Division 1 men's stableford but it wasn't enough to earn him the “Sunday School” competition honours.

That honour went to Dave Pirimona, who blasted his way to 76-14-62, for 46 points, to win the Division 2 stableford.

Forty-plus was also needed to win last Thursday's men's competitions.

Frank Ball won Division 1 with 79-12-67, for 41, while Brian Hall's 89-23-66, for 42 points, topped Division 2.
