Countback needed to split father and son
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.
Dave Neighall, also recording a net 67, featured in the countback but after setting a blistering pace on the front nine faded on the back nine to finish third.
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.
