Players battled freezing conditions, gale-force winds and super slick greens at the Srixon NSW Mid-Amateur Championships at Bathurst Golf Club today. Only sixteen players from a field of 139 shot in the 70's with no one able to break par.
Jamie Pitt from Windaroo Lakes Golf Club leads the Men's Mid-Amateur with a notable score of 72. Hot on his heals are Peter Cooper from Kogarah Golf Club (73) and Ryan Hochkins from Georges River Golf Club (74).
