BY JENNY BOYNEThere was a bit of a scramble earlier in the week to select a team to play Tilson Salver against Riversdale at Masterton on Sunday. Selector Gretel was in the hot seat after last months crushing defeat by Carterton with only one player gaining re selection Sylvia Beavis did not disappoint winning 5/3. Martinborough produced one of their best wins ever in this Comp 5.5 to 0.5. The other wins from Kris Chamberlain 3/2, Marion Mc Kenzie 1 Up, and Mariana Mc Dermott all square
The Men hosted Mornington on Saturday and home advantage catapulted the lads to top of the table winning 13.5 to 1.5. Wins from Craig Andrews 7/6, Gavin Lovejoy 7/6, Colin Whibley Smith 6/5, Sheldon Mc Namara 5/4, Dean Scheaf 5/4, John Warner 5/3, Derek Stephen 3/1, Alistair Boyne 2Up and Glen Schofer all square. In the four ball Sheldon Mc Namara and Chris Ranish 3/2, Colin Whibley Smith and John Warner 5/3, Gavin Lovejoy and Dean Scheaf 5/4, Craig Andrews and Derek Stephen 3/2 and Glen Schofer and Alistair Boyne 2/1.
The Tuesday grumpies played a Par round with Bill Jago winning the comp +6 2nd John Errington and Peter Price on +3.
There were eighteen players representing Martinborough at Cartertons open day on Wednesday and a large portion did not go home empty handed. Thats to Braiden Intl for subsidising my groceries this week.
Loads of local Tournaments on this weekend and Ed Sheeran in Dunedin.
