What about a hole in one statistician at Warwick golf

SPORTSVIEW with Gerard Walsh

ANNICE and Mick Payne are starting to master the ins and outs of the Warwick Golf Club course.

After playing in Victoria in the 1980s, they have five holes-in-one between them in Warwick. I better add, Annice has the three.

As a couple, they aren't in record territory yet.

Long-time past members Ernie and Shirley Marsden had something like eight between them, but of the current members, the Paynes are up there with the best in the ace department.

Players I know with two include Gwen Mills, Peter Farrell and Bob Lester.

There is a lot of information on the golf club honour boards and I understand a bit of updating to do. Perhaps someone can take on a project to tally up all the holes-in-one and I can then update all golfers and Daily News readers with the list of the players with the most in a century of play.

The one thing about a hole-in-one, you're always in with a shot and today might be your lucky day.

Footy on

IT is only January but the footy season, or at least training, has started in most senior codes.

There has been some player movement between clubs. Cowboys coach Craig Mullaly tells me there were 25 at training on Tuesday night and more to return.

He also added former state underage rugby league forward Darren Pettiford has signed up for the Cowboys. It is a long time since Darren played the 13-man game. Signings information welcome to gerardw@warwickdaily news.com.au.
