Championship goes down to sudden death
MILLAA Millaa golfers turned out to play on Sunday as the Millaa Millaa Golf Club hosted their Foursomes Championship, attracting 13 teams to compete.
The Foursomes Championships are played over 27 holes for men and 18 for women, the course and the weather were perfect for the competition.
The best nett winner with an impressive 99 and 3/4s was the winning team of Graham Murray and Richard Sullivan followed by Gary Sinclair and Mark Peters on 100 and a 1/2.
Nearest to the pins went to Don McHardie and Ross Ellen on 1/10, Kelvin Groves and Wayne Crowley on 5/14 and Gary Sinclair and Mark Peters took second shot nearest on 3/12.
Two teams finished with 123 gross score which meant a 3 hole stroke play off with sudden death if scores are still tied.
The team of Grant Miller and Warwick Howarth won the toss and led the way from Graham Murray and Richard Sullivan, Graham drive set up a birdie putt which Sol converted giving them a one stroke lead into the second.
This hole was the decider and even though Grant and Warwick got a stroke back on the ninth it was not enough with Sol and Graham eventually getting the win.
Next week will be a straight Stableford competition sponsored by Celebrations Bottleshop Malanda.
