All New Twilight Comp – results from night 4

The windy conditions again tested many but there was still some great scoring on the back 9.

The winner of the Men’s division was John Hamilton on countback from David Ott who both had a well compiled 22 points. The Women’s division winner was Denise Guerin who with 21 points was 3 clear of 2nd placed Joy Lord.
NTP on #13 went to “Aunty” Les Keys with the Women’s NTP rolling over due to the radars being a little off on the night. That means $50 is up for grabs on the final night this Tuesday for the Ladies.
Again, a big thanks to Twilight Sponsor Tony Pole of Pole Electroplating and Nearest the Pin Sponsor Jamie Steel of Gateway Cargo.
With one night to go there are 3 men equal on points, 4 clear of a chasing pack. There are 2 Ladies equal at the top with a 3 point buffer so it really is game on for the last Twilight on Tuesday night.
