James Lavender (Northern) and Judy Langford (Wodonga) have been crowned champions at the 2019 Alpine Senior Masters.

With thunderstorms threatening around midday, players ventured out an hour early at 8am in the brisk conditions for the second and final round.

Tied with Kingston Heath’s Gordon Claney overnight, Lavender holed a magnificent lengthy putt on the last to tie Claney and claim the overall prize on a countback.

The pair finished on 146 for the two rounds and both played exceptional golf.

The overall men’s nett was a closely fought contest with Gary House (Sanctuary Lakes) taking home the prize.

House finished on 140 for the two rounds to take a one-shot victory over Rutherglen’s William Black.

Judy Langford (Wodonga) took out the women’s scratch stableford event with scores of 30 and 27. Langford finished the tournament six shots clear of Gardiners Run’s Sue Lush.

The women’s stableford went to Patterson River’s Kay Barcelon. Barcelon was consistent for her two rounds with two scores of 34 giving her a five-shot victory. Pakenham’s Tina Cowie was the next best on 63.

Golf Australia would like to thank everyone at Bright Country Golf Club for their wonderful hospitality and excellent course condition over the past two days.
