Tunnicliff cleans up
Paul Tunnicliff almost needed a suitcase to take home all the trophies he won this year, which culminated with him deservedly being named player of the year at our annual prize-giving on Saturday (November 24).
The modest and quietly spoken mid-handicapper had a year to remember. He won the C & F Legal Junior A club championship, the Junior A stroke play title, the C & Legal overall stroke play and the season-long Barkman Trophy as well as coming second in the Brebde senior/junior with Alan Muir. As a result, he ended up easily winning the player of the year trophy by more than 100 points from Terry Hemi.
He was also a solid performer in our Old Hickory team.
Others who were either multiple winners or runners-up during the year were Bryce Vincent, Keri Kotua, Terry Hemi, Andy Isle, Elton Netto, Rob Willems and Alan Muir.
