    Lyle will spend the next week touring the Murray region taking part in tournaments, but after taking some time away from the fairways since June, he is not looking to set milestones.

    “I saw this as a good opportunity to play tournament golf all week and try to keep my match fitness,” he said.

    After his Pro-Am tour, Lyle will continue preparing for a stint in the United States where he will play at tournaments at Napa Valley in California, Las Vegas and Mississippi­­­ before returning for an early summer season in Australia.

    Looking ahead to October meant he wasn’t concerned with meeting handicaps.

    “I’ve got five days of pro-am golf ahead of me. I want to go out there and shoot well and get in as low as possible each day, but I just want to play well and if I’m competitive it will be a confidence boost for me,” he said.

    He turned professional in 2004 and played on the nationwide tour in 2006, finishing 18th on the money list and earning his PGA tour card for 2007.

    He won two tournaments, the Mexican Open and the Knoxville Open, in 2008, finishing fourth on the money list and earning a PGA tour card again for 2009.

    Over his career Lyle has played in the British Open and the US Open, with more than $2 million in prize money banked. Hailing from Shepparton, Lyle said he had a soft spot for regional golf clubs, but in all, was a huge fan of Australian golf.

  • Kelly eyes Sandown milestone

    Date: 2019.07.22 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    JACK Daniel’s Racing V8 supercar driver Rick Kelly is looking to break through at Sandown this weekend and claim his first 500km long two-driver race win.

    Kelly has finished on the podium at the pre-Bathurst warm up three times, including in 2006, when he fell only a 10th of a second short of victory.

    In eight Sandown 500 starts, Kelly has an average finishing position of 7.1, with success this year rounding out his trophy cabinet that includes a championship crown, two Bathurst 1000s, and a Clipsal 500 title.

    Sandown has seen Kelly climb to the top-step of the podium once previously, with a pole-to-finish domination of a wet sprint race in 2011, with elder brother Todd finishing third.

    Rick Kelly will once again be joined for the endurance season by David Russell, who lines up for his fifth straight year in Jack Daniel’s colours, with the duo recently completing a successful test day at Winton Raceway.

    “It certainly is an exciting time of the year,” Kelly said. “We’ve had an up and down start to the season, like a lot of teams seemed to have.

    “We’ve had some fantastic results, but for me it’s moving into an exciting time.

    “To share the car with David Russell in particular it’s a great thing for us.

    With only four of the combinations in the top-10 championship points featuring co-drivers who have a regular drive, Russell’s miles this year in various categories should put him in good stead.

  • Sullivan has no plans to call it quits after 2015 Group 10 decider

    ORANGE CYMS coach Mick Sullivan says Sunday’s Group 10 grand final isn’t likely to be his last, despite speculation the former NRL gun may retire at the end of the 2015 season.

    The three-time premiership winner has named as near a full-strength side as possible ahead of Sunday’s Group 10 premier league grand final at Wade Park, and will line-up in his fifth grand final since signing with the club at the end of the 2009 season.

    Sullivan’s determined it won’t be his last either.

    “I want to have another big off-season,” he said.

    “I’m not treating Sunday’s game as my last, albeit if there’s another major injury it will be.

    “I’d still like to retire on my terms, and to have one really good year personally would be a fitting way to go out.”

    Returning from a one-game suspension, Riley Law slots straight back into the green and golds’ backrow for the clash with Lithgow Workies, while Logan Pocklington could defy a serious facial injury to take his place on CYMS’ bench for the final game of the season.

    The presence of the kiwi wrecking ball would be a huge one for CYMS if he recovers in time for Sunday’s game.

    Despite missing arguably his side’s most consistent performer in lock Tim Mortimer, who had a knee reconstruction on his left knee on Friday, Sullivan was rapt to be able to call on a side that’s been consistently strong throughout the 2015 season.

    It’s the sort of continuity CYMS lacked throughout 2014.

    “I guess I knew it’d be hard with some travellers, but they’ve fitted in really well,” he said.

    “Apart from Timmy and Logan, who is a possibility of missing the grand final with his eye, we’ve had a good run.

    “We’ve had a couple of set backs with Riley … but in saying that the two weeks off for us has been good to freshen up a few guys.

    “There’s a few guys carrying niggles, but it’s grand final week, who isn’t.”

    ORANGE CYMS: 1 Tim Bassmann, 2 Robbie Mortimer, 3 Jermone Harrison, 4 Ben McAlpine, 5 Semisi Katoa, 6 Matt Rose, 7 Mick Sullivan, 8 Cam Jones, 9 Sam Hill, 10 Simon Osborne, 11 Riley Law, 12 Trent Rose, 13 Kyran Bubb; 14 Scott Sullivan, 15 Logan Pocklington, 16 Ben Gosper, 17 Luke Petrie, 18 Wayne Colletts.

  • Refresh your library at book swap

    Date: 2019.07.22 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    Mudgee Underground and the Mudgee Readers’ festival are banding together to bring a book swap night to Roth’s Wine bar in October. Pictured are Portia Lindsay from the Mudgee Readers’ Festival and Sam Paine from Mudgee Underground.Deciding that one book-based event in town just wasn’t enough, Mudgee Underground have teamed up with the Mudgee Readers’ Festival to bring a book swap evening to the region.

    As well as giving people the opportunity to bring along a book they no longer need and swapping it for something new, the Book Swap will feature readings from Reader’s Festival chair Susie Bennett, local author Summer Land, and Readers’ festival author Luke Carman.

    There will also be live illustrations from artist Sam Paine.

    Sam Paine from Mudgee Underground said the event came about through the suggestion of the Mudgee Readers’ Festival committee.

    “The committee wants to see a bit more happening throughout the year, so there’ll be a few events spread across the next 12 months in the lead up to the 2016 festival,” he said.

    Mr Paine said the Book Swap was a relaxed, fun approach to the Readers’ Festival that he hoped everyone would enjoy.

    “We’re hoping to get a whole range of stories, and not just novels,” he said.

    Mudgee Readers’ Festival vice-chair and Book Swap organiser Portia Lindsay said after a successful 2015 Readers’ Festival, the committee was keen to put on some satellite events that would appeal to the literary community.

    “Partnering with like-minded organisations such as Mudgee Underground and the Mudgee Library is a fun way to do this and Book Swap gives us the opportunity to use local talent,” she said.

    Ms Lindsay said that while a few people had expressed joking concern about parting with their favourite book, as long as you brought along a book or two of any kind than there was nothing to worry about.

    “We’re hoping this event will appeal to local book clubs, avid readers, Readers’ Festival-goers, and anyone who would enjoy a glass of wine at the lovely Roth’s and a friendly bookish chat with some light entertainment,” she said.

    The Book Swap will take place at Roth’s Wine Bar on Wednesday, October 28 from 6.30pm.
