Report by team captain Tom Persson

JAMBEROO has won the Illawarra B Pennants Golf title for 2013 with an emphatic 4-1 victory over the previously unbeaten Moss Vale.

Playing at a well presented Wollongong layout the Jamberoo side proved the stronger on the day.

Results –

Pete Munro Halved

Jarryd Buckley 2&1 WIN

Tom Persson 4&3 WIN

Paul Hazeltine 3&2 WIN

Adrian Bell Halved

Pete Munro

Came up against the Moss Vale Captain(Greg Canham) in a see sawing encounter which saw Pete 2 down late in the match but Pete never gave in and fought back to square the opening match – great effort.

Jarryd Buckley

Played (John Aughton) and got off to a flying start and was 4 up after 4 holes but typical of any Grand Final the Moss Vale player never gave in before being overcome by Jarryd 2&1 in a quality match – great effort.

Tom Persson

Played (Peter Richards) and played some solid pressure golf to come away with a 4&3 win.

Paul Hazeltine

Played (David Webb – unbeaten in several years in Pennants), in a tight, quality match Paul again proved why he is such a dominant Pennants player by dismantling “Webbies” game with his monstrous drives and radar like control of his irons to run away with the match 3&2 – great effort.

Adrian Bell

Played (Ross Hosking) and in a very close encounter squared the match on the 18th, it must be said however that Adrian played some super golf and was able to force the pace but just needed some shortish to mid range putts to drop on these lightning fast greens – great effort.

Again thanks to the support of Ray Orr who unfortunately could not be there on the day but provided the side with his nutritious energy bars and inspirational words. Also a big thankyou to our Manager Lance Fredericks and player Matt Bell for their assistance on the day and to Mick Harris and (Kim) for coming out and giving support. To those members who wished the side well (a big thankyou)

Really proud of the guys and couldn’t have asked for any better commitment throughout the season and the guys got their reward today by capturing Jamberoo’s 1st ever Mens Pennants Title and remained undefeated – well done to you all.



(p.s. guys no more B Pennants next Sunday – enjoy)
