Ken O’Brien claims Leongatha Senior Amateur title in testing final round conditions. Ken fired a remarkable final round 73 (+3) in what was a day full of strong wind gusts strong and the odd light shower. Ken fired a first round of 78 (+8) for a total of 151.

“I hit the ball well. I just hit a lot of greens. I also had a lot of 3 putts” mentioned O’Brien.

Surprisingly Ken finished his round with three consecutive bogey’s on holes 16, 17 & 18. His round was good enough to claim the title on a countback from Mark Abeyaratne (Peninsula-Kingswood) who was also on a 36-hole total of 151.

Norman Wilson (Chirnside Park- Gardiners Run) took out the handicap event backing up his 67 nett first round with a nett 76 second round. A total of 143 gave Wilson a one shot victory over Ignatius Duivenvoorden (Yarram).

Judith Quinn (Mornington) won the women’s scratch stableford event while Majella O’Connor (Ocean Grove) won the stableford category.
