Sunday Herald Sun - - Golf -

IT may have gone through to the keeper, given the festive na­ture of the sea­son, but the ef­forts of golf­ing prodigy RYAN RUFFELS six weeks ago should not go un­no­ticed.

Play­ing at Vic­to­ria Golf Club on New Year’s Eve off a hand­i­cap of +5, Ruffels, 18, shot a 61 that in­cluded nine birdies and an ea­gle.

As it wasn’t played off the back tees used for cham­pi­onship golf, it couldn’t be recog­nised as a course record. That hon­our, for shoot­ing 63, be­longs to US Open win­ner GEOFF

OGILVY, JOHN WADE and a cer­tain Ryan Ruffels.
