A relaxing day on the course proves a winner

IT WAS a perfect day in more ways than one for Andrew Hewett during the latest action at Lismore Workers Golf Club.

Some solid play saw home player Hewett take A grade at last Saturday's 18-hole individual stableford event with 41 points, seeing off runner-up David Henville on a countback.

It has been a while between drinks for the 42-year-old, who was glad to be back on the winner's sheet.

"I haven't been playing that well for a while," he said. "You don't get many chances to win (at Lismore) as there's a lot of good players out there.

"I just hit the greens, putted well - and did what I should be doing."

Right-hander Hewett, who plays off a handicap of nine, said it had been a joy to be on the course for the competition.

"The course is in the best nick I've seen it for a while," he said. "The greens are perfect and the fairways are in great condition too.

"Lismore is a very hilly course on the back nine. You really have to put your drives in the right spot and hit the greens.

"You have to be consistent there and luckily I was on Saturday."

Hewett has been a member at the Barham St club for about 14 years and said playing there was never a chore.

"For me, it's just about getting out at the weekend and having a round with your mates," he said.

"If you are nice and relaxed, anything can happen.

"If you get the win, that's a bonus."

Kevin Franey took B grade with 42 points, whileToby Daley won C grade with 41on a cb.
