Ian Frost (Rich River) has made it back to back wins at the Hepburn Springs Senior Amateur today, making a move on his share of the overnight lead. Frost carded rounds of 69 and 68 for a total of 137, a single shot clear of runner-up and half-way joint leader Hepburn Springs member Neil Egan. In his speech, Frost made mention of the quality golf Egan displayed in the second round.

Also making it two in a row was John Hoare from Pakenham who claimed the nett prize, with rounds of 65 and 66, narrowly edging out a three way countback for second between Bernie Frith and Neil Egan (both Hepburn Springs) and Brian Spalding (Kooringal) who all totalled 132 for 36 holes.

Helen Pascoe of Buninyong is proving to be the player to beat in the women’s scratch section this year, with yet another title today. The scratch marker posted scratch scores of 27 and 28 points for a total of 55 points, 6 better than runner-up Judy Langford (Wodonga).

In the women’s stableford section, local Shirley Rodda prevailed as champion, with rounds of 35 and 31 stableford points, she was scoring too strong for the rest of the field, second placed Debbie Gorin (Midlands) was 2 shots off Rodda’s 66 total.

A big thank you to Hepburn Springs GC, all the committee members and volunteers for their wonderful hospitality over the past 2 days. The next events coming up on the senior calendar are the trio of Heathcote, Shepparton and Tocumwal the week starting 18 June.
