Two divisions out today with the equal cut at 7-16 and 17 and as we teed off there were a few spots of rain, but apart from a small delay at the first drinks stop we managed to get around mainly unscathed by the weather.

Ron Miller returned the best score of the day, winning division 1 with 35 points. Paul Young was second on 30 and Tony Molloy finished third on 29.

Joseph Toner with 31 points topped division 2, with Willy Van Heetvelde coming in second after beating Kari Aarnio on a 20/17 back nine countback after two 28’s.

There were only four winners out of eight today in the near pins, Bob Comartin, Ron Miller and Mick Werner in division 1 and Ian Plummer in division 2.

Willy Van Heetvelde recorded the only 2 of the day to scoop the division 2 rollover pot.
