Golf fraternity lends a hand

LAST Saturday Night, the Australian golfing fraternity showed flood victims they were not forgotten.

Greg Norman's mentor, Charlie Earp, Australian golfing journeyman, Peter McWhinney and Australian cricket legend, Ian Healy, came sporting gifts such as golf clubs and tickets to Australia's next one day fixture.

The main purpose was the presentation of trophies for the 2010 year with Craig Mellon (Men's) and Sharon Weatherby (Ladies) named Player of the Year.

The three guest speakers donated their time to attend the event.

Young gun 14-year-old golfing member, Ayden Barnwell, was presented with an autographed cricket bat by Ian Healy from the Channel Nine cricket commentary team.

Ian Healy asked Ayden on stage how many were in his family to which Ayden replied “four”.

So Ian also gave him four tickets to Sunday's one-day game at the Gabba.

At the end of the evening, about $1500 was raised for the Lockyer Valley Regional Flood Appeal.
