After falling from scaffolding a few weeks ago Tom Fittock made sure there was no tripping on the winner’s podium or slip ups in the run home in the Stableford competition held at Stanthorpe Golf Club on Saturday.
Fittock finished the round with a winning score of 42 points. After an average front nine where he recorded 19 points Fittock’s back nine was excellent. He carded five pars for 23 points to finish the round.
Trevor Ludlow returned a score of 40 points and collected the runners up prize.
Rachel Hendry returned to form and the winner’s circle with a score of 39 in the Ladies event. Hendry had an excellent front nine scoring 21 points and a steady back nine ensured her win.
