It was billed as Beat the Pro. It ended up being beat up the pro..

Twelve out of 15 Waahi Taakaro pairings managed to outplay Total Golf guns Blair Riordan and Kameran Clarke on Saturday (Feb 24) in a performance which reinforced that local course knowledge is king.

Blair - playing off a +2 handicap off the blue tees - and Kameran - a former Maitai Masters champ playing off a +3 - didn't play badly, carding a best net of 70 on a parched course with generous run and bare lies which rewarded touch and nous rather than length. 

Four local pairings - Warren Carey and Michael Savage, Geoff Halkett and Warwick King, Richard Pearson and Barry Rhodes, and Andy Isle and Lewis Wilson - went deep to share first place with excellent net 63s.

They were followed by Pete Green and Brendan Doyle (64), Neil McLaren and Mick Leggett (65), Garth Jameson and Mark Clucas (66), Maurice Woodhouse and Jason Lee (66), Keri Kotua and Aaron Kotua (67), Graham Galt and Dean Goodman (67), Peter Watson and Paul Tunnicliff (69) and Duncan Isle and Chris Louth (69).

Graham, Peter and Andy shared the twos money with one each.

Blair (72), Kameran (73), James Campion (75), Andy (78) and Pete (79) all managed to shoot under 80 off the stick on a day of generally good scoring.

The day also doubled as the second and  final round of the Cap-it-all Trophy, which saw Warren and Michael romp to an eight-shot victory. Their total of 199 easily eclipsed Geoff and Warwick who finished in second place on 207. 

Next were Richard and Barry on 209, Neil and Mick (213), Phil Sellers and Jack Denton (214),and Peter and Paul (215) who made up the top six.  

Sally Quinlivan blitzed the 9-holers with a net round of 31 for the front nine. Paul McCrae took second on countback - helped by a birdie two - with 36.

Next Saturday (March 2) we play the Pat Melville Memorial Trophy, which is a net round off the white tees for those 55 and over.
