Greg achieved this excellent result playing off 22 handicap returning with a net score of 72. He now has the mug which needs refills, so be afraid.
A 2 way countback decided the A grade win to Paul Revill (hcp 12) from Owen Reid (hcp 12) both on 72 net.
Derek Nash (hcp 16) took out B grade with net 73. Shane Grebert (hcp 16) scored 76 for second place.
