Dick Ryan's 'Gungewalla' Cup Victory Bill Curtis Lifts "Hagon" Cup [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 15 June 1951
Dick Ryan's 'Gungewalla' Cup Victory Bill Curtis Lift* 'Hagon' Cup The weather, though threatening during the after noon, proved kind to golfers on Monday last (King '8 Birthday), when 45 players contested the 'Gunge- walla' Cup for 1951. Conditions were almost ideal for golf, and players showed their appreciation by turning in some really excellent cards. ' ? f The 'Gungewalla' is an annual event* played for each year on the King's Birthday, and provides a very exacting test, for it is played over 36 holes on a stroke handicap basis. This year's field of 45 play ers was well up to the post-war average, and scores generally' indicated a high standard of golf, especially in view of re cent course alterations and low ering of the par for the course. Dick Ryan's win off a handicap of 11 was particu larly meritorious. More over, it was a very hearten ing sign, for usually the 'middle to long' markers are regarded as having a mortgage on the cup, where as Ryan's win with 11 under par for...

BURGMANN, Ttt.A., Th.D., DIOCESAN BISHOP OF CANBERRA AND GOULBURN, SAID THE MERE PASSING OF A FEW LAWS AND THE APPRE HENSION OF THREE OR FOUR LEADERS WAS NOT ENOUGH TO STOP THE COMMUNIST TIDE IN AUS TRALIA.
