Poverty Bay

JUNE MacKinnon survived three chip-offs and a formidable 18th-hole opponent to win her first Kevin Hollis Glass women’s shootout title in brilliant sunshine on Sunday.

“I was just amazed. I’m still getting over it,” said MacKinnon, who defied any reference to a curse of the top qualifier.

The No.1 seed beat multiple shootout winner Gay Young in a chip-off from behind the green on the 18th after both made bogey fives.

Behind them was a trail of 17 casualties, each of whom was eliminated hole-by-hole in the net event that starts with 19 qualifiers on the first tee.

So close was the competition that there were seven chip-offs or putt-offs on the back nine holes.

Young had to survive three in a row from the 15th hole onwards before powering her 18th hole chip well past the hole. MacKinnon’s effort was not particularly impressive but, much to her surprise, still good enough.

The women’s shootout has a rule which is worth considering by organisers of all competitions of this kind. When there is a chip-off, those waiting for their turn are not allowed to watch (each ball played is marked).

It means they pretty much have no idea what they have to beat when it comes to their turn.

On the 17th, MacKinnon, Young and Kath Willis were involved in a chip-off over a bunker. MacKinnon only just got her ball on the green, and thought she was history, only to be told the other two had gone in the bunker. Willis was eliminated.

MacKinnon, still elated two days later, told The Herald she had yet to open her winning cash prize envelope – which she understood contained $250.

“As long as the envelope’s closed I’m still living the dream,” she said.

While she only made it to the halfway mark, Jo Kerr’s performance was of note. She was knocked out on the ninth — emulating her demise in Gisborne Park women’s shootout the day before.

Order of elimination: Miggles Shanks (1st), Ann Ward (2nd), Pauline Zame (3rd), Sally Spence (4th), Sarah Eriksen (5th), Lynne Holmberg (6th), Mary Allan (7th), Viv Bell (8th), Jo Kerr (9th), Pip Dymock (10th), Teresa Lewis (11th), Letty Poananga (12th), Alvie Hale (13th), Ishbel McKinnon (14th), Jan Utting (15th), Marg Colebourne (16th), Kath Willis (17th), Gay Young (18th).

A CHIP-off qualifier the day before proved a valuable rehearsal for Nigel McGregor in the men’s shootout final on Sunday.

McGregor outgunned Pat Butler on the 18th to be the last man standing. Both made bogey but McGregor was getting a shot, which proved the difference in the annual 19-man net elimination competition.

McGregor and a group of others got a practice run of sorts on Saturday in what was meant to be a nine-man chip-off for the final eight places in the field.

It was not needed as one player did not turn up, but those who did went ahead with it anyway to decide the order they would tee off the first hole in Sunday’s final. It was won by Pete Anderson, with McGregor runner-up.

Three-handicapper Anderson, one of only two single-figure handicappers in Sunday’s final, set the standard with par golf most of his round before a bogey saw him knocked out on the 16th.

Organiser Gray Clapham said Anderson’s play appeared to lift the field, with disastrous holes a rarity.

Top qualifier Murray Smith fell at the third hurdle. In a mixture of sublime and ridiculous, he chipped in for triple bogey 7 only to lose a chip-off.

Sam Willock had the dishonour of being the first to go.

Harvey Johanson provided the only controversial incident. He was penalised one shot for “a spit and polish” of his ball on the 11th, a no-no as there is no clean and place. He avoided elimination, thanks to Roy Skuse’s double bogey, but went out three holes later.

Alan Destry’s impressive effort ended on the 17th, leaving McGregor and Butler to fight out the title.

McGregor won a $300 voucher for his efforts.

Order of elimination: Sam Willock (1st), Duncan Bush (2nd), Murray Smith (3rd), Marc Armstrong (4th), Frank Ball (5th), Bruce Talbot (6th), Mike Dodgshun (7th), Nigel Jones (8th), Kim Travers (9th), Tene Goldsmith (10th), Roy Skuse (11th), Warwick Thompson (12th), Brad Morgan (13th), Harvey Johanson (14th), Bill Allen (15th), Pete Anderson (16th), Alan Destry (17th), Pat Butler (18th).

Jimmy Situ clocked up a personal milestone — his best round at Poverty Bay — in winning the division 1 men’s net on Saturday. Situ, off the blue tees, shot 75-12-63, for 45 points.

The Emerre and Hathaway cancer fundraising tournament is on SUNDAY.

Gisborne Park

JEAN Foot’s no stranger to shootout success but she still felt the heavy weight of do-or-die pressure on her way to winning the women’s final on Saturday.

Foot knocked out Park stalwart Rebecca Walford in a putt-off on the 18th to add the 2016 crown to several previous shootout victories including 2008 and 2009.

Both players made bogey on the 18th to set up the putt-off.

“It was a good day. Everyone enjoyed it,” said Foot, who collected $380 for her efforts despite the event not having a sponsor.

The women instead fundraised over the season to bump up the cash pool — from sales table to selling marmalade made by Ann Richardson. It was a matter of a lot of little things adding up.

As many champions at this format will agree, a touch of luck can go a long way.

“I was in trouble all day,” said Foot. “I think I had about five putt-offs.”

She thought she was a goner in one of those when Karen Hay’s ball looked in all the way on the 14th, only to hit the hole, spin out and finish past where Foot’s ball ended.

Shootout final umpire Sue Maisey made special mention of Walford, who she said played “beautiful golf” all day.

Pat Joseph fell at the 17th, leaving Foot and Walford to decide the honours.

Order of elimination: Freida Brown (2nd), Carney Pipi (3rd), Margaret Alley (4th), Noeleen Grace (5th), Ann Richardson (6th), Barbara Woods (7th), Shirley Paku (8th), Jo Kerr (9th), Karen McDonald (10th), Mihi Marino (11th), Tracey Ford, (12th) Lil McFlinn (13th), Karen Hay (14th), Francie Hutton (15th), Jacque Akuhata-Nickerson (16th), Pat Joseph (17th, Rebecca Walford (18th).

NEARLY 30 years ago Chic Brown won his first men’s shootout final.

On Saturday he made it a third.

The 69-year-old still remembers the players he knocked out on the 18th in his previous two victories – the late Bob Goodson in the late 80s and Matt Poi the second time round.

The latest was Willie Donnelly, who played supreme golf before falling to 10-handicapper Brown in a chip-off after the pair parred the 18th.

It was perhaps no surprise. Brown had already advanced from five chip-offs over the six-and-three-quarter-hour final. Donnelly played probably the best golf of the entire field – shooting 4-over 76 off a his 14-handicap only to fall by the narrowest of margins at the last hurdle.

Brown collected $350 for his win, which will take a healthy chunk out of next season’s sub.

Shootout organiser Tam Buckingham said it was an excellent day, the standard of golf was high and there was the odd drama or two, including an eight-man chip-off.

Third place honours went to Tony File while top qualifier Peter Koorey went on the 13th.

Order of elimination: John Charles (1st), Rob Taylor (2nd), Mason Emery (3rd), Brad Reynolds (4th), Derek Craven (5th), Mike Hutton (6th), Geoff Hall (7th), Tony Leggett (8th), Dave Harrison (9th), Bo Huhu (10th), Barry Cox (11th), Tom Reynolds (12th), Pete Koorey (13th), Anthony Pahina (14th), Steve Phillips (15th), Jack Glassford (16th), Tony File (17th), Willie Donnelly (18th).
