Nathan has wood on field



Nathan Woods finished ahead of a large field to win this year's Coffs Catholic Club Easter Cup.

Just under 200 golfers were entered into the weekend-long stableford event at Coffs Harbour Golf Club.

Adverse conditions greeted players on Saturday, with blustery winds making scoring difficult.

A pair of 38-point performances was enough for Woods to prevail in a thrilling contest.

For his troubles, Woods picked up a television donated by event sponsor, the Catholic Club.

Eventual runner-up Matt Thomas missed out narrowly on victory, finishing only one point behind Woods. A further two strokes behind was Paul Neely.

Michael Holt and Alan Heffernan both finished on 72 points, with Holt getting the nod as third runner-up on a countback.

The highest score for a round was 40 points.

There were only two of these scores recorded, one on each day.

Alan Hart's effort to get the 40 points in the wind on Saturday was Herculean effort.

Kevin Porter's 40 points yesterday certainly put his name on the final leader board.

The overall winner in the Ladies' competition was Paula Palin.

She was a comfortable winner with her 70 points proving just too good for the rest of the field.

Four strokes behind was Dot Wiggins.

Ronda Jones was the second runner-up after a countback.

Jones's overall tally for the weekend was 64 points, far enough behind the ladies' victor to give Palin's performance even more credibility.

Despite the recent stormy weather, the condition of the course was exemplary for the large event.
