From the ditch

2017-11-08 06:01

A GRAND finale match was played on Saturday afternoon with Jacques Minnaar and Jack Drew challenging each other in the finals of the men’s singles handicap.

Jacques has a handicap of minus 4 and Jack minus 2. These handicaps have to be whittled away before you can score, needing 21 points to win.

It was neck and neck to start, zeros were attained after five ends, and Jacques took advantage of a lapse around the ninth and 10th ends, to edge ahead. It took all of 27 ends before Jacques pulled off victory.

All systems are go for Jack Mason’s fun day on Sunday November 26 - keep that date.
