A good field assembled for the qualifying round of the 2023 John Laing Shield, a singles matchplay event.  Golfers were again faced with winds in the high 30Kph which  moved between  S, SE and SW,  It was often  difficult to pick just where the wind was coming from, hitting a par 3 was going to be more than a challenge; another tough day looked to be on the cards.  The fairways and surrounds were in tip-top condition and the greens were steadily coming back to their best.  On another very windy afternoon where the sun poked through now and then the results were;

1st; Scott Williams (18) – 35 pts, C/B

2nd; Andrew Clement (10) – 35 pts

3rd; Mitch Atlas (6)  – 33 pts C/B Mick Squire (6)

NTPs; 15th – Davey Kenney

Quarter finals of the 2023 John Laing Shield will be;

1. Scott Williams (10) Vs 8. Mal Mottram (0)

3. Mitch Atlas (0) Vs 6. Bob McLennan (8)

2. Andrew Clement (0) Vs  7. Davey Kenney (4)

4. Mick Squire (0) Vs 5. John Freestone (21)
