The finals of the Major Minor Pairs has been played this afternoon in arduous conditions. The social players only managed to play for an hour and a half before they sought the warmth of the club house. David Nelson and Peter (Rocket) Dowling were up against Jack Lundberg with substitute Tom Pisano for Simon Pleming. Jack and Tom got away to a strong start taking a ten shot lead. But David and Rocket weren’t out of it. They fought back to 16 shots all by the end of the 18th end. One shot for each team were claimed on the 19th and 20th ends. With Jack having the last shot to play David and Rocket were holding one shot, Jack played it well and rattled into the head to take the win by one shot.
Congratulations to Jack and Tom and commiserations to Peter and David. Thanks to umpire Jim for not leaving his post in the cold and wet conditions.
