Teeing up for Sinclair
CHRIS Murphy had no hesitation in choosing to help Sinclair Byrne when Peter Stewart Automotive decided to hold its inaugural charity golf day, that will be played on Sunday.
The dealership manager said Sinclair was a well-known Warwick sportsman who was seriously injured in an accident in Canada last year.
He is currently at a rehabilitation centre at Wynnum.
“All profits from the day will go to contribute to Sinclair’s rehabilitation, medical expenses and assist his quality of life,” Murphy said.
“Sinclair is top of the mind in Warwick at present regarding someone in need of a bit of help.”
Murphy said the club was going to make the golf day an annual event.
“All proceeds will go to a charity each year, preferably local,” he said.
Warwick Golf Club captain Stuart Wade said the four-ball Ambrose format, which would be played on Sunday, was excellent for beginners.
“The players all tee off and then all hit from the spot where the best of the four shots lands; they follow the same system all day,” Wade said.
As of yesterday afternoon, 60 players had nominated but organisers expect the number to reach 100. Bookings can be made at the pro shop on 4661 3664.
Prizes on offer include for the best nett, best gross, longest drives and nearest the pins.
