Rodney Ilerton


Played 3: Won 1, Lost 2, Drawn 0

Strengths & Weaknesses:

We will miss Rodney. A rather serious drinking injury has forced him to return to the Southern Hemisphere to rehabilitate. He heads up the committee investigating the possibility of the event heading south of the equator a few years from now. His blinding 40 on the front nine at The Machrie will be talked about for years to come. Luckily his back nine was sufficiently appalling that he was able to avoid cries of banditry and the need to prove that he did not hold a Mexican passport.

Opposing Captains View:

We will miss Rod a lot. Probably not as much as Rod misses the end of his finger, but nearly. Having been on the receiving end of Rod's amazing front 9 at the The Machrie I feel I can vouch for his golfing skills. Look forward to him organising the first event in SA in the near future.
