The peg legs - Richard Pearson and Peter Watson - came from eight shots back to win the Cap-it-all Promotions Trophy on Saturday (March 21).

Starting the second round - an individual nett off the blue tees - in fifth place, the pair - who have three artificial hips between them -  powered to a four-shot win after several of the teams in front of them imploded.

While Peter produced the goods during the four ball best ball first round, it was Richard who starred on Saturday in overcast conditions with a nett 68 (82 off the stick), including a 40 on the back nine. Peter backed him up with a 72 for a team total of 206.

Day one frontrunners Steve Turnell (82) and Lindsay Brooks (70) couldn't take advantage of their opening round 58 to finish second on 210.

Third were Paul McCrae (68) and Tom Weiss (72) on 211.

They were followed by Dean Goodman (70) and Aaron Kotua (78) and Dave Blake (74) and Maurice Woodhouse (73) who both ended with 216.

Phil Sellers (74) and Mike Murphy (81) faded from third after the first round to finish on 217.

Winton Griggs (68) and Warwick King (81)  were next with 219, just ahead of Lewis Wilson (70) and Rangi Kohe (80) on 221. 

Steve Chetham (74) and Jim McMullan (92) blew out to 233 after lying fourth after the team round, while Bryan Ramsey (83) and Rod Thomason (81) trailed the field on 233.

Both Terry Hemi (73) and Keri Kotua (77) were ruled out of contention when their partners couldn't make the second round.

The best nett of the day, however, went to Peter Green (who couldn't play last week) with a stellar 64 (79 off the bat), which included an eagle on No 10 after two big blows to the green and a long putt. He was very close to a second on No 1 but had to settle for a birdie.

Dean Goodman and Rod Thomason, with a chip in, shared the twos money.

Next Saturday (March 28) is the Maitai Masters, although the fast developing coronavirus pandemic may put paid to it. Club members are urged to check their emails for updates. If the event is postponed all entrants will be informed and offered refunds.

A date is available later in November to play the Masters if it is postponed.
