Golfers tee up for cancer day

CLIVE Pulley didn't think twice about turning up to the Cancer Council Queensland charity golf day at the Warwick Golf Club yesterday.

And he brought two sons and one son-in-law to make up a team in a four-ball ambrose which attracted 68 players.

Clive said his father John Pulley and father-in-law Harley Armitstead both died of cancer.

“The people from Cancer Council Queensland gave us moral support at the time. We support this day each year,” Clive said.

While Clive and sons Matt and Simon are regulars at the Cancer Council day, son-in-law Scott Stevens was playing in the group for the first time.

Scott and wife Amanda, a teacher at Assumption College, have only been back in Warwick for a month after living in Mt Isa.

“It is a great cause,” he said.

Stevens didn't play golf at Mt Isa but has been a regular at the Warwick Golf Club since returning to his hometown.

Cancer Council Queensland vice-president Jean Heeks said she hoped what the Cancer Council did was helping due to increased research.

“I love the friendships from being involved in Cancer Council Queensland,” Heeks said. “It is the support of ordinary people which allows us to do what we do for the Queensland Cancer Council.”

The overall winners yesterday were Trevor Rock, Luke Munro, Wayne Walters and Jay Roberts.
