Gisborne Park

WAIKOHU’S Marg Tuapawa picked an appropriate event to burn up the course — the East Coast fire brigades tournament on Sunday. Tuapawa had not broken 100 since a round of 95 at the Hauraki course in October of 2014. She well and truly ended her century-plus scoring run with an aptly sizzling 97-38-59 on a 30-plus-degrees day to win the women’s net.

Tournament organiser Jack Glassford showed he’s still one of the best golfing firefighters around — albeit a retired one — in winning the fire service division gross with 79. Wade Wesche (76) shot lower than that but his 68 was also the best net while Te Puia Springs veteran Nelson Truman (40 points) won the stableford.

The Juken NZ team of Geoff Hill, Anthony Pahina and Rodney Moore won the three-man team stableford with 111 — Pahina contributing 40 points to that total. Dennis Jenkins and Glassford’s combined tally of 79 won the two-man team stableford.

Father and son Ray and Andy Brott, and Truman Collier were the hottest players in the other divisions. Andy posted 84-23-61 to win the men’s C division gross while his dad — a nine-hole golfer at Poverty Bay — won the net with 92-26-66.

Collier piled on the points, 45, to win the women’s stableford. Kani Kingi mixed four birdies with four bogeys in winning the men’s stableford on Saturday with an even-par 72-8-64, for 44 points — his low round at the Park, according to the NZ Golf handicap website.

Jo Kerr, Jack Straker and Wayne McHugh were in top form last week. Kerr won the women’s stableford on the Wednesday with a 3-over 75-8-68, for 41 points. Straker (89-24-65, for 43 points) headed off Wayne McHugh (85-20-65, 43) on countback to win the Tuesday veteran men’s stableford.

AN eagle-3 on the first hole helped Darren Patumaka smile all the way to the bank in Sunday’s competition. Patumaka, who teed off 10, went out in 42 but started his homeward nine holes with a bang.
