Most of the large field of 16 players were frustrated as they competed in a Four Ball Multiple. The exceptions were Mick Shiner and Chris Newberry who easily took out the day with 77 points. The runners up with 66 points were Don Campbell and Len Stanley.
Nearest the pins went to Len Stanley the 7th, Don Campbell the 10th and Wal Chapman the 18th.
With the much improved weather we hope the higher numbers will continue.
Our elimination round to choose our Four Ball teams to represent Guyra in the NEVGA Four Ball championships will be held on September 29.
