Phil Sellers shot the lights out but it was Bryan Ramsey who walked away with the major prize in the fourth and final round of the Burns Philp played in ideal conditions off the blue tees on Saturday (Feb 8).

Phil - who hadn't entered the three previous rounds of the stableford competition - was on fire in shooting 83 (nett 62) off the stick for a massive 46 points to coast to a win in the match of the day. He started with a hiss and a roar in amassing 27 points in his first 9 holes and managed to keep it going.

Bryan's rich vein of form continued with 41 points, good enough to claim second on the day and also the competition overall on countback from Dave Blake after both totalled 114 points for their three best rounds and the same top score. It came down to the back nine of their best score with Bryan edging it 21 to 19. Tom Weiss was third a point back on 113.

Third on the day was Alan Church with 40 points followed closely by his good mate Winton Griggs on 39.Rob Willems - making one of his final appearances before moving permanently to Totaradale  - finished fifth with a tidy 38 points and the only two of the day. He was later awarded a miniature cricket bat at prize-giving afterwards for the 22 times he has won the Brian Lara bat for exceeding his handicap by 10 strokes in the 18 years it has been given out. This is highest number for a member still playing on Saturday.

Steve Turnell, Steve Russell and Jack Denton were next with 37 points each followed by Paul McCrae and Paul Tunnicliff with 35 points.

Next Saturday (Feb 15) is the third round of the Stubberfield Cup, a nett plus putts four-round competition.
