On Par – Golf Southland


George Rogers challenge
ON a fine day last Saturday, Mossburn challenged Waikaia for the George Rogers Shield, the Southland golf.

Although Waikaia had been able to defend the shield successfully against Dipton and Lumsden, Mossburn took the honours with a 3/2 victory (Waikaia names first): Al McKee beat Jason Herrick 2/1, Iles Baker lost to Barry Stevenson 3/2, Charlie Smaill lost to Lindsay Houlistan 1 down, Barry Lawrence beat Lindsay Muir 2/1, and Ken Blatch lost to Brent Smith 6/4.

The average age of the Waikaia team was more than 69 years old.

It was a great effort by all.

The next challenger is Waikaka in August.

Annual meeting
The Golf Southland annual meeting is being held at the Invercargill Golf Club, Otatara, on Sunday, June 27 at 3.30pm.
