Ian McCleary has continued his remarkable year by claiming his third win for the season at the Box Hill Senior Amateur. A two-under par round of 69 today has extended his lead in the running for the 2018 Doug Bachli trophy.
The Kooringal member posted a solid card of 4 birdies, 12 pars and 2 bogeys to win on a count-back from Rossdale’s Geoffrey Charnley. After a great start to his round highlighted by an eagle on 18, Charnley will be ruing two late bogeys on his finishing holes which proved costly.
The nett section saw Neil Lockhart (GSM) produce the best score of the day with a great score of nett 67. Lockhart, playing off a handicap of 11 was victorious by four strokes over Northern’s Iswurlall Jhoty after his round of 94/70.
The Women’s section saw the in-form Helen Pascoe (Bunniyong) produce a brilliant 33 points to romp to victory in the scratch stableford event. Pascoe completed a great week of golf after she took out the Victorian Women’s Autumn Tournament up at Swan Hill on Monday & Tuesday. Second was Sue Lush (Gardiners Run) with her score of 22. The best stableford score of the day was Winchelsea’s Elizabeth Alston with a great score of 35. Closely following was Vera Lund (Kooringal) with 32.
Thanks to Box Hill Golf Club for their wonderful hospitality and producing the course in such great condition.
