Goodman seeks a perfect game

GYMPIE veteran Tony Goodman says early retirement and golf are a winning combination.

Goodman carded a nett 66 to win last Wednesday’s B Grade monthly medal.

“I had the opportunity to retire early and needed a challenge so I decided to get serious about improving my golf game,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ray Rigbye won the A Grade monthly medal with a nett 61, seven shots clear of runner up Lindsay Taylor.

Greg Gooding was the B Grade runner up with a nett 70.

Ball rundown to 71: Bill McNaught, Ken Dickfos, Joe Simaile, Derek Appleford, John Baxter, Don Griggs, Ron Scott, Greg Gallagher, Keith Johnson, Doug Sutton.

Hole 16 Accuracy shot: Ray Lindsey, Bill Swan, Bob Abbott, Doug Cunningham, Don Griggs, Dave Thomas, Joe Simaile.

Last Wednesday, members also played the final round of the Gympie Veterans Age Championship.

Division results:

55-59 years – Ray Rigbye (159 gross), Greg Gooding (141 nett). 60-64 years – Barry Allen (169 gross), John Baxter (133 nett). 65-69 years – Ian Horley (162 gross), Joe Simaile (136 nett). 70-74 years – Don Griggs (164 gross), Brian Taylor (147 nett). 75+ years – George Tompkins (174 gross), Dave Thomas (146 nett).
