Mon­day Oc­to­ber 15 will never be for­got­ten by Ken Pur­cell, who played one of the best rounds of golf in his life, re­turn­ing a score of 61 nett, 11 strokes be­low his 18 hand­i­cap and to cap it all with 79 off the stick, he played three shots un­der his age, won the hag­gle, had a two, and of the 60 play­ers in the field, had the least num­ber of putts.

The day could not have been more per­fect for golf, with warm sun­shine and vir­tu­ally no wind, the course was in great con­di­tion and with the greens hav­ing mirac­u­lously re­cov­ered very quickly from the re­cent verti-drain­ing, it was not sur­pris­ing that there were so many good scores in the putting and nett com­pe­ti­tions.
