Dunkley, Entwistle a winning pair

THE pairing of Ray Dunkley and Gerry Entwistle proved to be the wining combination in last Wednesday’s 4BBB Stroke event.

Dunkley and Entwistle carded a sensational 57 nett to narrowly defeat John Kenny and Graeme Major in a count back.

Entwistle was full of praise for his partner especially his driving and short play around the greens.

“Ray certainly had a day on and I was just lucky to be playing with him,” he said.

Dunkley carded a nett 63 and described his round as the best he’s ever played.

Ball rundown to 62: Ray Lindsey, Gavin Burls, Steve Gissel, Ross Plowman, Nev Haack, Noel Turvey, Don Cappetti, Ken Dickfoss, Bill Swan, Bryan Stallard, Kev Macklin, Lester Pettit, Jeff Mason, Dave Thomas, George Tompkins, Derek Appleford, Keith Stewart.

Hole 16 Accuracy shot: Bill Swan, Ray Dunkley, Rod Walker, Lionel Muir, Lindsay Taylor, Ian Horley, Ray Rigbye, Noel Turvey.

The Gympie Veterans 2010 ‘Bridgestone Tyres’ Match Play Championship has been decided with Brian Carroll winning A Grade and John Kenny capturing the B Grade title.

Carroll overcame a determined Joe Simaile to win 1 up while Kenny had a comfortable 6 and 4 win over Gerry Entwistle.

Gympie Vets president Bryan Stallard made special mention of the events’ sponsor, Bridgestone Tyres thanking Rex and his team for their support.

Next Monday Gympie Vets travel to Peregian Springs for an 8.30 shotgun start while on Wednesday members will play the 1st round of the Club’s Aged Championships.
