Sir Bob’s back


Kiwi golf legend Sir Bob Charles (right) gets in a few practice shots for the Australasian Legends Tour on Millbrook Resort’s new nine.

Sir Bob, 73, took a stroll around the new holes – due to open next month – with Millbrook grounds supervisor Blair Dibley on Monday.

Dibley says he had a good blat with Sir Bob. “He thinks he’s not playing well enough to enter the NZ Open but I’d disagree.”

Sir Bob competes for the $10,000 purse – for pros 50 years old and over – in Kelvin Heights’ Legends event on February 23.
