Top day on the border

FIRST DIVISION: Third place Brian Slape, runner-up Alan Schultz and winner Gordie Fleming. Pictures: SUBMITTED

A FIELD of 42 SE Veterans golfers headed to Bordertown for their latest round in chilly conditions.

However, Robe’s Gordie Fleming shone to take out first division with a fine 39 points, from Alan Schultz (Millicent) and Brian Slape (Bordertown) on 37.

Second division went to Brian Pennell (Beachport) with a 38, from Chris Carr (Beachport) and David Lowe (Bordertown), both with 35.

The Ross Orchard trophy went to Mount Gambioer’s Barry Brook and Millicent’s Jimmy Hyland.

Hyland also gleefully took home the Scotch.

The five nearest the pins went to Brook, Wayne Dunford, Bill Mullan, Schultz, and Russell Lingham, whose shot on the eighth hole teetered on the edge, needing just 1cm to go in.

It was an easy birdie.

Players needed 28 points to get a ball in the rundown.

President Glen covered himself with glory by landing on the 11th green and then putting five times without holing it.

That was truly amazing.

The next visit is to the seaside, Kingston on June 17, followed by Lucindale on July 1.
