Poverty Bay Golf Club results
KEEN or crazy?
The majority would probably have gone with the latter in assessing the small crew who went out in miserable weather on Thursday last week.
Nine players, including 75-year-old Bill Allen, donned wet-weather gear but only two of them came in with stableford scores over 30.
Andy Abrahams was the best, winning the competition with 33 points, one ahead of Alex Kirkpatrick.
Glenn Morley has probably never won anything with 28 points but it was good enough for third.
The Sunday players enjoyed contrasting conditions, reflected in the scoring.
Peter Kerekere, who shot 1-under 71, won Division 1 with 37 points, while Dudley Meadows won Division 2 with 40.
The player who had two air shots — both in bunkers — and six points on the front nine will remain nameless out of mercy.
