RND 25 - The penultimate run didn't close out the season with the potential for 5 others to join Dan at the top in the final round. A great turn out with 21 players, well done to Wally Cameron and Jake to go around the course in par resulting in a net 24.5 score. Second with no cigar went to Senior and Snowy. NTP to Wal and Snr.
RND 24 - A huge 38 points to Muzza - though some may say not so huge when you play off a handicap of 21 for nine holes! Three shots clear of eBay on 35 points (on a count back from Galvo - keep the followers still in the chase for the title).
