Heavy rain during the week saw all fairways and greens a little softer; many balls picked up mud, especially in the areas attacked by the corellas.  Play began on a cool afternoon under overcast skies with some light drizzle.  The drizzle returned at about 4.00pm as the players were heading up the final holes.  The quarter-finals of the Algie Mitchell shield went off the 1st with other groups spread across the course.  The day’s results were;

1st; Shaun Scales – 96/25/71

2nd; John Freestone – 102/29/73

3rd; Sherif Abdel-Sayed – 105/31/74

NTPs; 1st – Simon Donovan, 15th – Mal Mottram & 16th – Scott Williams
