I Tyre Golf Day

I Tyre was the sponsor of the Workers Day Golf tournament at Rossmund.

Christopher managed to join us on the course,which was great. There were queues waiting to tee off in the mist at 8 o’clock on both sides. As to be expected the clubhouse was buzzing from around lunchtime and the ‘putt-putt’ course was overflowing whilst the bowling section held one of their ‘poker ‘fundraising days. So, all in all everyone had an awesome day.
The results of the day were; Nearest to the Pin. No.7 – George Murasiki, 18 holes: Des Benson 37 points,Tiekie De Wet 35poits, 9 Holes: Bertie Saunderson 18points
On Saturday 4 Maywas the second round of this year’s Dulux Golf Series with Johan Le Riche on hand to see that all went according to the rules and playing with a partner of choice. They managed to play a not too shabby 43points which was the winning score for the day.Once again, the day brought out a good field of golfers vying for a place in the final.
Winners on the day were Andrew van Schalkwyk/Steven Johns 43 points followed by Michael Ludeke/Stuart Salt 42points – GertBreedt picked-up a Nearest to the Pin Prize on Number 12.
A total of five pairs were nominated to go through to the final to be played at the Omeya Golf Course on 31 August :- Michael Ludeke/Stuart Salt, Warren Theron/Bertie Saunderson, Helmut Ndjendja/ Justine Shivulo, GertBreedt/Gary Knight and Lynne van der Walt/ Zelda Nel.
Thanks to Dulux for a fantastic day and for their support of Golf in Namibia.
Wednesday 8 May was time for breakfast vouchers from Atlantic Villas supported by Art Africa with some great ball markers. There was a field of 30 golfers who enjoyed the afternoon in excellent weather conditions. Unfortunately for Helen Boettger it was not a great day at the office. Securing the Most Golf whilst Stuart Salt picked up the 9-hole prize with 20 points over the back 9 after suffering a terrible front 9 with 8 blackouts and a three pointer on No.9 – just goes to show one must never give up. Our 18-holewinner was Kevin Wentzel took the count-out on 37 points over Michael Ludeke. Well played to all and thanks to the sponsors.
Thought for the week: A recent statistical survey of golfers’ height, conducted on behalf of a major sportswear company, revealed that the average player is seldom as tall as his stories.
