$30,000 Raised and Merv Was a Hit

Thanks to the IT Industry, putt4dough raised $30,000 this year taking the total raised since inception to $108,000. Congratulations to Marty, Mark, Rocco, and Dave for their big win.

And yes big Merv Hughes was a hit with the crowd. He played 18 holes, gave a fantastic and funny talk, and then mingled with the guests until the late hours of the evening. He carried his team of Justin Scanlan, Glenn Beauchamp, Tony Harris, into 5th place after showing that he can hit a Golf ball further than a cricket ball...by a long way!

Mervyn Gregory Hughes was a right-arm fast bowler, representing Australia between 1985 and 1994 in 53 Test matches, taking 212 wickets. He played 33 One Day Internationals, taking 38 wickets.

He was born on 23rd November, 1961, in Euroa, a town in the Shire of Strathbogie in the north-east of Victoria.
