A wet morning cleared to a fine, cold afternoon with s steady wind in the mid to low 20Kphs from the N/NW. Again the damp fairways took distance off every shot so time in the air was all important.  After the first few holes the sun came out and for the rest of the round it was jumpers off then jumpers back on.  The stroke field saw some excellent golf from two players, the remainder struggled to play to their handicaps.  The  Semi-finals of the W. E. Tom were again close fought.  Harris/Lyon moved steadily ahead before dropping a hole against Chisholm/Nicholls Snr.  In the end long driving and excellent short games saw a clear winner emerge.  The Williams/Vandervliet Vs Wilkins/Laing match was close all day with the result turning on the 15th & 16th, two par 3s, wins were needed but halves were achieved.  The day’s results were;

1st; Rob Gillet – 80/12/68

2nd; Andrew Clement – 83/11/72

3rd; Mitch Clement – 85/10/75

NTPs; 15th – Steve Wilkins, 16th – Mal Mottram
