2018 Vets Shootout Final

On Monday 19th November, 10 Vets set off on the final round of this year’s Shootout competition. Conditions were very good and a high standard of golf was needed to remain in contention through to the final stages.

Robin Whitehead and George Gray, both turned in good performances before being eliminated at the 7th and 8th holes.

This left Ash Peterson and Carl Christensen to battle for the honours on the final hole. The hole was halved which meant that a Chip Out was needed to decide the winner.

The match referee, Rex Fowler, had set the Chip Out some 15 metres beyond the 9th Green, in the rough, on a downhill lie, and under a tree.

This caused cries of “foul” from the spectators but Carl executed a great shot which saw the ball slide a couple of metres past the hole.

Ash then responded by holing out in a way that would have pleased any pro Golfer, and clinched the major honours. A fitting climax to this event!
