Thompson's ace effort

PROSERPINE GOLF: The highlight of Thursday's men's stableford played in overcast, windy and cool conditions, was a hole in one on number nine by Mark Thompson.

It's always hard to come back from these great shots and alas Mark could only manage 11th place overall.

Winner on the day was Trevor Paroz with 42 points, from runner-up Paul Nicol, 38 points on a countback.

It is rumoured that one has bought some new clubs and the other is getting lessons.

In third place was Barry Mortimer and fourth was Sam Deicke, both on 38.

Other place getters were Peter Krause, Glenn McKerley, Nic Langevad and Perri Simpson, 37, followed by five on 36.

These were Joe Taylor, Chris Brett, Mark Thompson, Gavin Kerwand and Warren Deighton.

The pin shots went to Zac Dowde on hole two, Mark (the Ace) Thompson on nine, Karl Wolzak 13 and Lew Tuck on 16.

There were no winners in the two-shot club.

On Saturday both men and ladies played a single stableford for Master Butchers Whitsunday trophy.

The ladies' winner was Noelene Spurway on 35 points, from runner-up Paula McQuat on 34.
