Well the weather certainly wasn't our friend last weekend! The usual 72 Hole Riverside Strokeplay wasn't to be with a rain reduced 18 hole tournament it was anyone's game Sunday afternoon. Our very own Riverside players certainly played their part too. Chantelle Cassidy (Riverside) won the Women's division in a playoff birdieing the first playoff hole to snatch the victory from North Harbour's Ella Grimwood.
On the Men's side Christian Nitsche suffered an early setback on Friday. Christian was clubhouse leader enjoying a fine lunch after an effortless 69. Unfortunately all Round 1 rounds were to be scrubbed. However despite the disappointment Christian came out hot on Sunday morning and tore the course up recording 7 birdies and just 2 Bogeys!. After 18 Holes we had three tied at the top. Christian Nitsche, Tom Parker and Matthew Morris went down the first hole, with Christian and Matthew walking away with birdies to eliminate Tom. Second hole, and Christian hit his drive straight up the middle and Matthew left in the trees. Two shots later and both had a par putt from 4-5 feet. With Christian coming away with the win, you guess what happened.. .
