Despite the course remaining very wet in places following recent rains, a good field of 65 players registered for today’s Tuross Head Veterans Golf Single Stableford event. Despite the course conditions many very respectable scores were recorded with multiple birdies and pars on the short par 3s.

Winner on the day with a fine score of 27 points for the nine holes played was Ross Hendy. Ross was followed home by Ron Hanlon with 26, Steve Johnston on 24 and Gail Rogers with 23. No doubt the handicapper will be taking appropriate measures following these high scores.

Minor prizes were won by Bruce Ware and Tony Crook on 22, Barry Hoban, Steve Gardner and Ray Downey on 21, Leonie Snodgrass, Jennifer Gray, Ken Brown, Jeanette Miller, Lance Shadbolt, Graham Moore, Frank Pomfret and Steve Collins all on 20, and finally Shirley Quinlan on 19 after a three way count back. Greg Thornton took out this week’s Bradman award on count back.
