ON A RUN: 4BBB champions Wayne and Will Brennan (Gross), Steph Sweeney and A.J. Cross (Nett).

Their two round total of 141 (71, 70) was three shots clear of runners up Miles Archdale and Anthony Smith on 144 (73, 71). 

The Brennans also won the title in 2012. 

An 18 foot putt on the 18th hole from off the green was enough to secure Steph Sweeney and AJ Cross the nett championship after they finished 188.5 nett (60, 58.5). 

That was just half a stroke clear of club handicapper Don Brooks and life member Neil Dark 119 (62, 57). 

Overall winners last Sunday were Owen Presnell and Bill Heazlett with a very good score of 56.5 nett which entitled them to trophies donated by Peter Norbury and Tony Asmus. 

Sweep stakes when to Dark and Brooks 57, Tim Beaumont and Vic Coulter 57 (who also finished third in the overall scratch), Cross and Sweeney 58.5, Guy Lord and Bruce Rutherford 61.5, Archdale and Smith 62.5 on countback from the Brennan boys. 

NTPs went to AJ Cross (1), Max Holstien (3) and Owen Presnell (16).

This Sunday is a Regional Australia Bank stroke medal round to be played in conjunction with prize supplied by Barry Hoad Clubhouse Duty – Doug McDonald’s replacement.
