It’s a battle for most Kyogle Vets on a rain sodden track where the ball stops practically on impact with the fairway. Of course some golfers handle the conditions better than others. Dave Robbins was one of these in winning the day with 34 pts, while Edward Enright & Kelly O’reilly took out 2nd & 3rd place on countback with 30 pts.

The ball run-down began with Barry Mitchell with 30 pts, then Marty Trouw, Steve Beaumont, Barry Doig, Dumpy Hogg & John Doyle scored 29 pts; Wayne Mills & Barry Little 28 pts & with 27 pts was Mick Tough, Paul Brosnan & Jeff Firth on 27 pts.

NTPS went to Barry Doig on the 2nd/11th, & John Doyle on the 5th/14th.

Anyhow with the rain starting to level out now & the course getting into good shape we will battle out next week with a Single Stableford.
