A RELATIVELY small field of 42
players contested the National Navy
Golf Championships at St Michael's
Golf Club, Little Bay in Sydney on
The national Navy champion is
LCDR Darryl Whitehead, of HMAS
LCDR Whitehead, off a handicap
of +3, put together two excellent
rounds (151) to hold off the strong
challenge from CPO Darren Wheat,
of HMAS Stirling, by four shots.
LCDR Whitehead now adds this
trophy to his already impressive list
of ADF titles.
The Navy nett champion is
LEUT Paul Andrews, of HMAS
Waterhen, who played some stellar
golf during both rounds to finish
Playing off 29, he was the only
player to score better than his handi-
cap, in the blustery conditions.
Four-shot win secures Navy golf championship
N AVY has something to
crow about after dominat-
ing the 2012 Australian Defence
Football Federation (ADFF)
Championships, at Sydney's
Cromer Park from November 1-5.
Navy won the Patron's Cup
as the overall winner, the men's
national carnival trophy, the men's
interservice shield and the men's
over-35s interservice shield.
Navy clinched the men's open
championship after crushing Army
4-0 and pipping the APS 1-0.
Navy won the championship
courtesy of a two-goal differential
after finishing level on six points
with Army and the Air Force, after
going down to Air Force 1-0 in the
Navy may have finished run-
ner-up to Air Force if not for the
RAAF's sensational collapse
against Army after leading 4-1 with
10 minutes to play, to lose 5-4.
President Navy Football LEUT
Jim Ford said the 4-0 thumping of
Army exceeded expectations and
was crucial to winning the trophy.
"It was our best result ever in
the tournament," he said.
Navy's best players were AB
Jason Kingdon, of HMAS Ballarat,
who was voted overall most val-
uable player, AB Matt Rowe,
HMAS Albatross, who took out the
coach's award and LS Adam Paloff,
attached to RAAF Base Amberley,
who was voted players' player.
AB Kingdon played at centre-
back where he was superb in attack
"This is only my second year
playing for Navy, so I'm delighted
we won and that many of us gained
selection in the ADFF teams to tour
the United Kingdom in 2013," he
said.SMN Shane Acorn, of the
RANSD at HMAS Penguin,
received the rising star award for
his creative play.
Navy also won the men's over-
35s for the first time by beating the
APS 8-1, Air Force 2-0, and fight-
ing Army to a 2-2 draw.
The Navy over-35 team is now
World Firefighter Games champion
and ADF national carnival winner.
Best players were LCDR
Anthony Green, of Ballarat, who
was selected as coach's play-
er of the tournament and LS Jon
Gueudinot, who was voted most
valuable player by his peers.
The Navy women came within a
whisker of making it a clean sweep
after impressive wins over APS and
Air Force, but lost its last match
against Army 2-0.
Best players were LS Danielle
Williams, of HMAS Kuttabul,
and AB Emma Searle, of HMAS
LS Williams was strong in
attack and especially brilliant in
"We played very well without
some injured players, but more than
anything it was fatigue that beat us
in our last game," she said.
Navy's superb performance in
the event ensured the selection of
20 players in the ADF teams to tour
the UK in April 2013.
ADFF President CMDR Paul
Denneny said the Federation will
take three teams to the UK where
they will play two trial matches and
four tour matches.
These will include games
against the Royal Navy, the Royal
Army, the Royal Air Force and the
UK Combined Services.
The ADFF touring party will
comprise the ADFF men's, wom-
en's and over-35s teams as well as
coaching, management and sup-

First-time half ironmaners
before the Port
MEN'S OVER-35s :
Army v RAAF 2-2
RAN v Army 1-1
A TEAM of three Navy triatheletes
posted a credible result at their
first half ironman triathlon at Port
Macquarie on October 28.
LSMED Holly Whitney-Wylde,
of HMAS Coonawarra, LCDR
Joanne Haynes, of HMAS Kuttabul,
and LCDR Danielle Radnidge,
of Kuttabul, competed in the Port
Macquarie half ironman, represent-
ing the Australian Defence Sports
They successfully completed in
humid conditions to place 12th in
the female teams category.
LCDR Radnidge completed the
1.9km swim leg in 38mins, with
LSMED Whitney-Wylde tackling the
hilly and windy 91km bike course
in 3:41, which left LCDR Haynes to
complete the 21.1km run in the heat
of the day in a time of 2:03.
LSMED Whitney-Wylde said all
three women regularly competed in
sprint and olympic distance triathlons
at various locations around Australia.
"This was the first time we
have competed in a half ironman
distance and all three of us are now
looking forward to competing as
individuals in the future," she said.
LSMED Whitney-Wylde now
has her sights set on a half ironman
at Busselton in May next year.
"You're always challenging
yourself to do better," she said.
LCDR Radnidge said all three
women found triathlons a great way
to keep fit and make new friends.
