Navy blitzes golf champs
By LSIS Paul McCallum
NAVY golf is alive and well in the Top End
with Navy winning the inter-Service cham-
pionships for the first time since 2001 at
RAAF Darwin Golf Club from October 4-8.
Navy was well represented in both the NT
Championships and inter-Service matches
with CPOB Shane McCallum missing out on
the overall net winner by two shots. The gross
winner went to the Air Force's SGT Darren
Day one of the inter-Service saw Army
and Air Force battle it out with Air Force com-
ing out winners 41/2 to 21/2.
Navy played Army on day two and per-
formed very well with Navy defeating Army
with the same results as day one.
Navy then took on the might of the Air
Force to decide the inter-Service champions.
Matches went as expected during the day but,
as CPOB McCallum stepped onto the 18th tee,
he was one up on his Air Force opponent. A
halved hole saw Navy claim the trophy for the
first time since 2001, Navy 4, Air Force 3.
Members of the victorious team
were drawn from Headquarters Northern
Command, Fleet Support Unit -- Darwin,
Armidale Class Patrol Boat crews and
Defence Force Recruiting -- Darwin.
The team comprised LCDR Barry
Learoyd, CPOB Shane McCallum, POMT
Anthony Bold, PONPC Peter Cumberland,
POMT Scott Imms, LSBM Andrew Rigby and
ABCK Matthew Jacques.
THE NSW Navy inter-Service golf team
won its third title in three years when the
annual event was held from October 18-22.
The Cliff Morey Trophy (Individual
Scratch) and Geoff Fraser Memorial Shield
(Individual Nett) events were contested over
the first two days with Navy players PO Grant
Malouf and SMN Michael Edwards battling it
out in a play-off for the Nett title, which SMN
Edwards eventually won on the second hole.
Days three to five saw some excellent
match-ups against Army, RAAF and APS.
Navy won all three days 9-4 to comfortably
retain the title for 2010.
SMN Shaun Diachkoff took out the Navy
Team MVP after an excellent inter-Service
debut at the event, where he won all three of
his match-play events.
Team captain, CPO Ian Rigby, victoriously
held the trophy aloft at the presentation din-
ner, thanking the team for their efforts and
sportsmanship during the week.
