Success on the greens
The annual TMR Sales & Service Golf Tournament came off last Saturday at the Rockley Golf Club and once again proved to be a rousing success.
This early Rockley tournament is always popular and the entry list included many of the club’s overseas-based members returning to “winter” and golf in Barbados.
The main competition was split into two sections and the winner of the Stableford Flight was Peter Dean, Joy Newman was second and Sue Lumsden came in third. The Medal Flight was won by Livingston Webster with Collis Lynch in second place and Ivan Codrington finishing third. Iz Hustler won the junior competition while Judd Cozier and John Croswaithe won “Nearest-the-Pin” prizes.
A feature of the TMR-sponsored tournament is that company employees are encouraged to get involved and play.
Rockley, for their part, arranged a special competition for the TMR staff members. As has become the practice an enthusiastic number of company employees took up the opportunity, playing behind the main tournament and then, most importantly, staying on for the social activities that followed the golf.
On this occasion, Wayne Sobers, TMR’s IT Manager, took the honours, proving that besides being an expert in “(com)puters” and their (hard) drives he also knew a little about golf’s own “putters” and “drives”.
TMR’s golf tournament co-ordinator, Charles Belle, presented the prizes to the winners. Peter Thompson, chairman and marketing director of TMR was also present on the day, playing in the Stableford Flight but vowed to improve and play in the Medal Flight next year.
