This year's Aurich Zander McKenzie
foursomes champions are Matthew
Hutchinson and Tom Edwards.
Playing in the McKenzie format, where on each
hole, players play their own ball twice before selecting
the best ball and then alternating strokes, Hutchinson
and Edwards took just 80 strokes for a net of 67 and
They just edged out Darryl Tyler and Terry Arndt by
just two eights of a stroke.
The ladies also played McKenzie foursomes, with
Marlene Tyler teaming up with Cathy Arndt to com-
fortably win their event by a massive margin of more
than six strokes.
Sunday saw the first round of pennants golf for the
year. After a period of disappointing years, Loxton
fielded its strongest A grade team for some years and
immediately tasted success.
The A grade had a comfortable win, 4/1, although
not before a couple of nail biting competitions.
Andrew Hume went down on the 22nd while Lewis
Cregan, who was also taken to the 22nd, emerged
with a win.
Loxton's B grade also enjoyed a 4/1 win, but the C
grade lost 3/2 in a series of closely fought matches.
The club next turns its attention to the first of the
winter monthly medals, which will also be a qualify-
ing event for the Governor's Cup, traditionally held at
Glenelg Golf Club later in the year.

Hutchinson and T. Edwards 80/ 67 and five eights, D. Tyler
