I have just returned from the Annual Walker Cup Golf event which is in its 31st consecutive year. The event which is played over 72 holes has players coming from interstate: Perth and Brisbane.
This years singles winner, Alan Roberts, won by one shot. Alan played in the second last group in the final round so it was unclear who the winner was until all the scores had been tabulated and checked.
This years doubles winners were Greg Thomas and Mark Davis. They won the Stevie Bell Memorial trophy. Stevie, a long time mate and participant unfortunately died a few years ago. He loved to win this event and each year the trophy is presented by Peter Walker.
As you might imagine its a valued time away each year to enjoy the company of mates and unwind after what always seems a big year. At the closing award ceremony it gets a little emotional as we all wish each other good health over the coming year and thanks for the company. Till 2013.
