GOLF: With al­most 40 years ex­pe­ri­ence in the sport, An­nette Wal­ters has been crowned the win­ner of the 2018 Ladies Queens­land Sand­green B-Grade Cham­pi­onships in Tambo.

At the week­end seven women from St Ge­orge made the trip to Tambo for their chance to win the two-day com­pe­ti­tion, but in a close game, it was St Ge­orge’s Wal­ters who took the win in a play off against Denise Vale.

Wal­ters said af­ter fall­ing six be­hind the leader on the first day, the windy and wet con­di­tions on the sec­ond day went in her favour.

“I was so ner­vous and so shaky. We were both 179 for the week­end off the stick and it was on hole three that Denise flew one down on the green and missed with her putt. I nailed the putt and was lucky to have a good chip,” Wal­ters said.

Other suc­cess for the St Ge­orge ladies was with He­len Tur­vey se­cur­ing third with 180 off the stick for the week­end and Lyn McCosker win­ning a pin shot.
