Southern Riverina news - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Jer­ilderie The stroke event played on Sun­day pro­duced an epic strug­gle be­tween fa­ther and son Wayne and Trent Neil­son - with the older head even­tu­ally pre­vail­ing, but not be­fore a count­back was needed to sep­a­rate them.

Ever­green golfer Barry An­gove, ben­e­fit­ing from the coach­ing re­ceived from Marty Ryan dur­ing the week, put in a solid per­for­mance to fea­ture in the ball comp.

Satur­day’s par event was won by Dave Legge, re­turn­ing an im­pres­sive +6, eas­ily win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion from Lau­rie Black­more, on one-up.
