Poverty Bay

JO Kerr is the 2016 Primo Cup champion after producing a personal best-equalling round on Saturday. Kerr’s 2-over par 76 off an 11-handicap gave her an overall score of nine for the 2x9-holes net-minus-stableford format. She topped a field of men and women who qualified for the final and capped her win with two twos.

Runner-up was decided by a chip-off on the 18th after Marg Colebourne and Roger Kelly finished on a score of 12.

Colebourne combined with Ron Young to win the club’s closing day hidden partners’ combined stableford. They totalled 81 points to head off George Brown and Jim McGregor by one point.

Best of the home-course players were Keith Daniels and Robert Fletcher on 42 points, while Fletcher’s wife Vonnie posted 41.
